Here are some things about Victoria:
She is beautiful.
She loves yarn.
She has no dignity.
Still pretty, though.
And her surgery will cost ~$5,000
The thing about broken arms on cats is that you can't just slap a cast on and be done with it; the arm won't heal. So she needs to have a metal plate implanted or an external/internal rig of pins and screws, depending on the severity of the break, which is why the estimate is rough - $4,700-$5,300.
She's had falls before, though Jack is the least graceful of our cats. This time was just colossally unlucky. Just the exact wrong way to land. Poor Tor.
And yes, I make a big deal out of her being evil. Don't tell her I love her. It's a secret. Though I think she knows after my cuddling her for hours at the vet.
We got CareCredit
because they needed payment yesterday, but obviously we will need to pay that damn bill. I still have three storybits I owe from Jack's care earlier this year; I'll get to work on that today. sindrian
will also be doing a sale on cool CNC-milled stuff; he's calling it the "pay for Tor-butt's cyborg conversion" sale. I will have to do Wind Tunnel Dreams again.

if you feel so moved.
She's on IV painkillers; the vet does the pet-update calls after 11, so I'll know more then. She will be having her surgery today, and they'll keep her overnight for observation, but I'll also get a call post-surgery. I'm hoping for the plate - it seems like that's more conducive to her returning to her everyday life with a quickness.
