I LOVE my cats,would do anything to keep them safe happy and healthy,but $10.000,that I would have to think long and hard over....
My son would love $10.000 to open his own business
But then again I don't know,I've never been in that situation..luckily
My cats don't go out into the street,they are safely at home..
I also think I would rather spare them the trauma of several surgeries and 4 months in a cage in a hospital.
