We got an update on Chaucer earlier today. His procedure went well, and they got the blockage out of the way. He's still a bit dehydrated, so they were going to give him more fluids for the rest of the day and have us get him as late as possible today, at around 9pm, so they had a chance to get as much fluid flushed through his catheter as possible before we take him home.
Unable to afford the cost of the recommended stay of at least 48 hours, we opted to keep him there overnight. I absolutely hate taking the pets to the emergency vet because they don't offer payment plans and they completely fuck you over because they know that absolutely no one wants to say "I can't afford to keep my pet alive, give him back." They have you over the barrel and they know it, and they use it to their advantage.
Unsurprisingly, he's not eating. He's a a picky eater under the best of situations, and being in a strange place full of weird noises and smells and strangers is probably more than enough to keep him huddled in the back of his cage.
He's not going to be happy going back into the carrier to get him home. He yowled the entire way to the office last night.
