My cat had an surgery 3 days ago. He had a tumor in his ear. His name is Horu and he is 9 years old cat. He has a brother and he acts like a mother to two kittens. (he also had a pancreas infection just two weeks ago)
Many compliment me for taking care of my cat and I agree. I would do anything for my babies.. but the cold fact is that taking care really costs.. So did this surgery. It was 300€ and that really hurt my pocket really bad.
What is even worse is that he needs an injection as well as his teethes cleaned along with his brother before they get mouth cancer.. and currently I am a little out of clues what to do to raise such an amount.. It should cost around 200€. Soma, the brother on lower image, has an astma. It dosn’t really effect much of his life except that he can’t run.
On top of that.. Horu has very sensitive stomach. If he dosn’t eat every 5 hours he pukes. If you give him regular food, he pukes. It has to be either fully natural or for delinquent cats. Of course such food is half more costly than regular one. Lucky they are not picky with their litter sand.
But I really need to figure out something to raise up 200€. I finally had money to get those injections but yeah.. taking care of that tumor took priority.
….so..uh.. anyone interest in buying art?
((Every time I reblog my commission post I get someone bitching about my prices.
YOU WANT CHEAPER?
GO TO DEVIANTART AND PAY IN POINTS.))
if her new landlord, utilities, and assorted bill collectors will not settle for a pittance of cash then…

I reblog this because the very next post was “reblog if…”
I find it humorous.
I need to draw again..
I’ve been waiting for this post all my life
the disclaimer though
reblogging again because I actually read the disclaimer this time…
Question to artists who OBVIOUSLY draw better than me!
//Okay, if I trace the lines and pose of someone else’s drawing (like, oh I dunno, I can’t draw dinosaurs so I pick a picture, make it less opaque and draw along the main lines of the dinosaur’s body), does it count as copycat/plagiarism/stealing art?
Or is it just plain referencing?
I need your expert answer so I can purge this thing I’m drawing (because HOW DO ROBOTIC CATS!!!????) while it’s not yet published!
While many do this to practice, like I did in my younger years, it is counted as copying and usually results in to an pissed artist. However, lawfully, it is not exact copy and thus you can’t be prosecuted. Generally artists won’t post traced works, despite they are modified.(unless the art itself is placed as “Free pattern” or so. )
However.. there is tutorials and such for different body parts that you generally can use as a model for your work and is more acceptable. Same with real life people pictures. A lot of artists take pictures of magazines and such that they use for modeling and practicing.
My comic teacher said boldly “Copy the part what you like and make the rest yourself” He is respected comic artist i my country. hehe.
And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America
Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.
Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.
Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.
But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?
Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.
Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!
OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T
how can anaesthetic cost that much??
how is this legal??
WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.
You have to pay for the ambulance!?
OK, I’m shocked by the prices, but all of the people from other countries who are just shocked that there ARE prices just make me so so sad.
This is so screwed up.
America is a crappy place to get sick, apparently
((Okay, I don’t normally do this, but this is one of the biggest problems I have with my country. About this time last year I popped something in my ribcage. I don’t know how, and I still don’t know what it was, but I’d seriously thought I’d somehow broken a rib. I was in extreme pain and could barely move or lift anything for weeks, it hurt just to breathe, yet I adamantly refused to go to the hospital. Why? BECAUSE OF THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE!!! Please note that I do indeed have health insurance through my employer, but even with that, going to the emergency room and even getting a simple x-ray would have at least cost me a few months rent that I couldn’t spare. That would have been before any medicine was prescribed and only if there wasn’t anything really wrong. I currently deal with chronic shoulder pain and, again, refuse to get it checked out because I can’t spare the money. This is one of the better arguments for moving to Canada that I’ve ever seen.))
yeah this bullshit costs more than a college education, house and brand new car. if i get cancer i will just fucking kill myself.
