Four Days of Hell

Ugh. It’s been four days of hell here for me. Friday was my standard 13 hour weekend day at work, punctuated with much more drama than usual. At one point I was actually gripping the back of a chair so I DIDN’T hit the guy.

Fortunately Joe had seen what he was up to and casually came up behind me, laid his hand on my shoulder and said So how is my FAVORITE girl treating you tonight? The guy stopped being QUITE the asshole he’d been being. To top it off by the time my brain shut down for sleep, there were only five hours of sleep to be had before getting up for the NEXT 13 hour shift.

Saturday was a lot better- at work. Got home to find the cats had no food so ran back out. Got home to. three cats running to eat. Found Anne flopped on my bed, but not herself.

After running her to the ER vet it was determined she had swallowed string. At that time we took emergency measures to hold the worst off until the next day when I could get her in for surgery, if it could be managed. Thanks to Regans’ cool thinking helping me work out a possible way to get the funds, and the awesome support of my friends, the surgery was possible and so far has been an amazing success.

After hearing how the surgery went I went in to work to try and get some of Sunday’s expenses made again since I used all my bill money made over the weekend on the ER vet. I’d only asked the cost of the surgery itself in my request for help, wanting to cover everything I could manage myself.

The only reason I even asked for help at all was that there was no way I could make that amount before I needed it and my budget was so tight as it was I’d already squeezed it as tight as I could for Sundays’ costs. But halfway through the night three girls came up to me and said how happy they were that Anne was doing well (the girls at work helped out a lot, surprisingly) and that they were surprised I hadn’t responded to Destinys’ comments on Facebook.

What comments? Apparently I hadn’t seen them because she’d unfriended me. One of the girls took out her phone, logged on and showed me. Apparently I’d totally offended her by asking for help for a dumb cat when there are hungry kids right here in this country. Just put the stupid thing down, go to the pound and get another one if I really want a cat.

Not content to leave it at that, she’d private messaged and texted most of the friends we have in common telling them not to help me, if they really wanted to do some good to give money to the pregnant dancers that couldn’t work any more and had kids to feed. She then went on rants that people helped my scrawny waste of fur when she was stuck in Chatanooga, pregnant and alone.

(She has four kids already, none of which live with her, all by different fathers and the paternity for her fifth is narrowed down to three guys.)

I was so hurt by this. I’d made sure that I covered as much of the cost as I could on my own, made sure that the surgery would have a good chance of success before putting out the call for help. Didn’t ask for huge sums of money from anyone, most of the donations were in the $10-$15 range and the moment I had close to the amount I let people know, because I only was asking for what was necessary for the surgery itself, nothing more.

I’d gone without a car for two months when that couldn’t get fixed right away, had bills not get paid on time, and the only reason I asked for help this time was that the timing was crucial and it was life or death. Haven’t wanted to say anything on FB because of the positive energy that is so awesome there right now and didn’t want to take away from the good work that was done. The girls at work couldn’t believe it either and have been really supportive, but it still really hurt.

If you couldn’t help, or didn’t feel it was what you would do, that’s fine. But to so publicly say things like that really hurt.

And she has a puppy, who I sincerely hope never gets sick.

So really trying to stay positive here. The post-surgery news is good, and the other cats have been very cuddly and sweet. Can’t wait to have Anne home again with me.

Just really cast a cloud over my already stressed week.
