Default Your cat an donate blood

I was reading today, im sure most of you well know
your cat can donate blood

why?

simple

some cats might need a blood transfusion and your donation could be
greatly needed

i read an article about this... but it didn't say how much blood they
take etc...
just that you could bring your cat (or dog) and donate much needed
blood

the donated blood is also used for research

the article says, it's safe and your pet will not have any major
setbacks because of it

... well.. what about the juice and cookies? shouldn't there be some
special food surrounding a donation?

I don't want any needles in Jupiter (they can suck lucy dry for all i
care) lol, just kidding
she trusts me..(lucy) i wouldn't do that to her...

but I also feel bad for the cats that need blood

not my cat

can't they get fresh blood from cats that are going to be euthanized?
you know, scrap the cat

damn thats cold sounding i know! but.. how bout it

Vets keep donor animals around for this. At least some vets do.
