Pets can be expensive. More so if you love them unconditionally.
I love my cats; to an extent. A very specific extent: $300.00. If they need medical care that costs more than that, it is fatal to them.
Yes, I will cry; but I'll also be able to afford to pay the mortgage; and, when we are ready, to adopt another stray animal.
In your opinion is that cold? - Because to some extent a financial sword of Damocles hangs over the heads of most, if not all, domestic animals. But it seems to me that usually it's just ranchers and farmers who, before treatment is needed, think about the extent to which they will spend to help an animal live longer.
Having said this, I should note, my resolve has not yet been tested!
