Oh HELL no! I've never inferred anything anti-American, anywhere from you. I
don't blame you for wanting to pull your hair out at what may have been
certain comments suggesting that we can do things in the US that a person in
the UK can not do. "Well, we can do this" is counterproductive to the problem
at hand


As one of the people who used that phrase, I would like to clarify that
I said it *not* to rub Tweed's face in what we could do that she couldn't,
but because I wasn't sure if she was right. This was because I thought she
might have been confusing sub-q fluids with IV. Now it's quite clear that
she wasn't confused about that at all, but at the time, I didn't know that
for sure. So when I said, "We can do that in the US," my intent was to say,
"It's perfectly legal here, and our countries aren't *that* different -
are you *sure* you can't do it there?"

I have posted this before, but since this is still being discussed, I
thought I'd better say it again. I would never rub someone's face in any
advantage I had that they didn't, especially when that advantage might
be extremely beneficial to their sick kitty if they could only do it. I
agree that this would be unproductive, not to mention cruel.

Meanwhile, I've been put in my place as to what Tweed knows and doesn't
know about what is legal in her own country.

BTW, how is the feisty old dame?

By all means read what they have to say *- they do know about cats, but
don't feel guilty (and don't let them make you feel guilty) that the path
you choose for you & those in your care is different from theirs. They
aren't God and have no right to judge you & your life.

I have faith that everyone here will make decisions that they think are the
best path through complicated and conflicting priorities. I may not have
made the same decisions, but I can't imagine anyone here not taking 'the
best interests of the cat, given the circumstances' into account when they
make the hard decisions.

Sometimes I really wish posters would just spit out what, and who,
they're talking
about, because I suspect I *strongly* disagree with this post. Veiled
put-downs and disguised criticism gets really tiresome on here.
Not that anyone needs to be totally tactless, either.

Eh? It was all about KFC's struggle for life. How can you not agree with
that?

Tweed- Hide quoted text -

Tweed, the post you are referring to had nothing to do with KFC. My
heart just breaks for you both, and I wish her (and you) nothing but
the best. I should
think you would know that.
If you want further explanation or would like me to elaborate, I'd be
glad to, just
e-mail. This
thread wasn't one I'd particularly like to resurrect.
Sherry
