got home around 9pm and our cat has been urinating blood out of her tray and seems really uneasy, my wife phoned the RSPCA and after lots of messing about and them telling us to go to the vets and us telling them we didn't have money for vet fees and cant afford weekly or monthly plans as im unemployed and we have a Baby and cannot afford much recently and just had to end out mobile bill due to it going up just 50p.

anyway we was told by the RSPCA that they would pass the incident to the resources department.

5 minutes later RSPCA resources phoned back saying that an RSPCA officer would be contacted and we would hear back from them.

3 hours went by and we had heard nothing so we phoned back because our cat had started bleeding more from her bum.

the advisor ended up having my wife in tears so i went on the phone and he told me that it hadn't been past to an officer and that wouldn't happen as we need to get in touch in touch with our vet.

OMG all that time being told different things and nothing was really taking place. i was shouting that much down the phone at him that he hung up lol.

:::::::::::::

sooooo i then phoned birch vets and there not taking calls and it said phone another number, so we phoned the other number and yet again the answer phone asked us to phone a mobile grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

we phoned the mobile and a young girl who sounded about 12 answered and asked what the problem was and she had advised that we keep the cat in one room and bring her to the vet in the morning.

oh right so a cat bleeding from her bum will be fine till morning.
i am so not happy right now. frown

thats the only thing they charge £80 right away before even treating her. Thats why need asked for help for help from the RSPCA but they only want to help the people who dont work and never worked, working people they wont help.

nope there not, it tells you to call someone else and then you call them and then it says call a mobile and then you call the mobile number and a 12 year old answers saying lock your cat in a room for the night and come in the morning.

so if anyone is ever bleeding from there bottom dont go to the hospital just lock yourself in a room for the night.

Why should you get free help from the RSPCA especially when you work? If they give you help every other person who was working would be asking for help from them aswell.

If you can't afford a cat or insurance don't have one.

lose the attitude member.
we have had her for eight years and circumstances change and with the recent economic climate. as many members will agree on here.
plus my wife is on maternity leave and the pay is crap.

but again i think everyone on here will agree, if you dont work and are a scrounger then you get help and everything free. IT DOESN'T PAY TO WORK.

Anyway its not about if people work or not its about a cat that is sick.

Why is someone who doesn't work a scrounger? And if you work, and surely your wifes pay on maternity leave is better than someone on the dole you have no excuse for not having insurance.

"and circumstances change and with the recent economic climate" Yes it has changed and thats why alot of people aren't working, doesn't make them scroungers.

i bet there is more on here who isnt insured than insured i can guarantee. not all scroungers but there is plenty out there.

no i dont work i am unemployed since january, and i can tell you now maternity pay is crap and its thats bad my wife is having to return to work early to pay the bills.

when i asked the rspca for help they said they could no problems at all, then as soon as you tell them you dont claim benefits then its a whole different story.

if i claimed this and claimed that you can get it all for free. total joke it is. but there was a program on a few days ago on bbc and that was all about people working and not working and thats exactly what they said "it doesnt pay to work nower days" and it is true.

even if your a druggy or alky you get more funds than the normal ones, it just does not make sense at all.

I know how you feel, I am a single working mum who has to work full time just to afford the nursery fees!! My dog has bleeding from his willy and is going the vets tomorrow...I am dreading the bill but hopefully will be allowed to pay monthly (not that I have the spare cash for that at the moment) and it doesn't help when you are worried to be lectured about what you should have done.

If your wife is on maternity pay you should be entitled to housing and council tax benefits which would entitle you to RSPCA and PDSA help.

Hope your cats ok xxx

is there still a PDSA in birkenhead ?

the night my dad died, his dog got hit by a fire engine at the scene and ran off, when we found it it was suffering scorched lungs/smoke inhalation and was draggin its back legs, thankfully it turned out just to be heavy bruising,

we got in touch with the PDSA at 3am and they did the consultancy and medication for free.

I really wish I was online last night.
The most local PDSA is in kirkdale, Liverpool. As long as you have proof that you are recieving housing benefit, you can go there. Sorry I don't know the number either. But the out of hours one is in Huyton, I actually use the PDSA myself for my cats.

Hope your cat is ok!!
