    Anyway, Fatass is a cat miracle, and adorable in that gif. Anyone who wouldn't take Fatass into their home is by definition the worst person in the world, ever.

    Truth is spoken!
    I just want Madrigal and this dude to have a long and happy life together and am wary of setting a precedent that one cat requires another cat's companionship because then you're forever on a cycle of getting one cat to keep company with whichever one was most recently bereaved, whether this guy likes cats or not. If Maddy's going to leave behind Argentina, I see no good reason to drag along this feline monument to her sister's irresponsibility when there's another home available. Start as freshly as possible when merging your life with another. Lev's grandfathered in. Lev will be fine. Let any additional furballs, or lack thereof, be joint acquisitions! Of course, he's going to agree to how ever many cats she wants because she's Madrigal and all but that doesn't mean he won't resent it! Not that it's any of my beeswax. This is why only vote in polls without commenting It's all fun and games until you have twice the paws walking across your goddamn keyboard!

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    Rename Fatass to "Datass" and it will all be worth it just for the conversations you'll have about her.

    All of this makes perfect sense but it kind of minimizes the fact that Lev was recently ill. I'm not looking forward to towing around another cat. I haven't had good luck with them. The first one I lived with had feline leukemia. The next one had a urinary problem, his penis needed to be removed. Now this one is costing a fortune. If Fatass has a health issue too, I'm gonna have a nervous breakdown.

    is it me or do cat health issues just seem really common?

    we took our cat to the vet recently (probably the first time she’s ever gone) and they say she has early onset kidney disease. she’s around 9 - 10 years old and we just got her. i was researching this and apparently kidney disease is really common cuz cats tend to not drink enough water, plus their people aren’t aware they’re sorta picky about water. for example they don’t like drinking and eating in the same spot.

    the costs are gonna come later and that sucks but i feel like this is the hidden cost of having a cat. (edit: oh and we’re making sure she always eats wet food, we add some water to her food plus we have a water fountain turned on most the day just for her)

    i’m sure there are some cats that are pampered their entire lives and don’t have problems but is that rare? just due to the nature of cats?

    idk. i mean all animals have problems but almost everyone i’ve talked to with cats mentions some weird health problem or injury their cat had/has.

    Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.

    Ok I'm gonna say it:

    Expensive health treatments for pets are an unnecessary luxury.

    Fatass is an accessory to draining-all-your-resources cat. Once draining-all-your-resources cat is out of the picture, I think you should have a euthanization policy for all secondary pets.
    Too bad, Lady Une. You were far too lenient.
    As a soldier, yes. But as a civilian I lived an austere life.

    You realise this is a living being we're talking about?

    There's no shame in rehoming a cat if you can't take care of it anymore, be it due to familial, health or financial reasons. But euthanising one just because it's inconvenient? Fie.

    I think if this guy can put up with Madrigal an extra cat will be in the noise.
