My cat was limping, and the vet said he had a bad knee. I didn’t even know cats had knees. But I know nothing about the feline anatomy; if the vet told me the cat needed new batteries I couldn’t argue. But I’m not at the complete mercy of the vet. There’s a built-in price constraint. I can always get a new kitty for nothing. Let’s face it: High vet bills make it difficult to respect the sanctity of life. Fluffy might be cute and you might love Fluffy, but Fluffy’s not getting a liver transplant. No donor list for kitty cats.
