Farm cat has a couple of kittens in October, under most circumstances the kittens wouldn't survive the weather but she brings them up to the house and my youngest daughter sets up a box with straw, plugs in a heat lamp so they would survive the cold nights.

My wife found a home for them where my youngest kids can visit but they still need a week or two. Kittens get a touch of distemper and my daughter was concerned, told her I would get them the shots. Two shots=$39, just a simple vaccination shot. When the clerk asked for $39, I told her that if they weren't important to my daughter, a 12 gauge shell is less than 50 cents and I know that will solve the distemper issue. They really have pet owners and apparently people with children by the balls. Newborn calves get two vaccines and the total of both of those shots is less than $6 and a calf is actually worth something.

My fault for not checking on the cost but I couldn't back out after I told her I would get them even for dumb cats.

For that same 40$ you could've likely gotten the farm cat spayed and saved yourself a lot of headaches.

I need replacement mouse catchers. The system works if my daughter had not intervened. The spring kittens live, the fall kittens die, circle of life and all that.

Next time, I'll just get saline solution, its not like my daughter can tell the difference.

you should be happy that your daughter is growing up to feel a love for pets that you are incapable of feeling, rather than bitching about paying 40 bucks for a couple of shots

They pay 80% of tax revenue, seems excessive

We delivered the kittens, the lady seemed pretty happy and the kids handled it well.
