So sorry to hear about your kitty :( It really sucks. I have a couple other animals that need care, but I do it all myself and just keep hoping no vet emergencies arise with them right now.

DO NOT pay off the credit card bill, that's a waste of your money right now. It will do you no good to have a brand new shiny empty CC and no place to live.

This is exactly the sort of thing I just stopped thinking clearly about. My one Visa (Credit Union card) I guess I will just make the minimum payments on, but the Care Credit - see above reply to ems79 for that info.

Secondly, and I know this is not what you asked, but you should sell yourself as a contractor to other employers...

Unfortunately, it is not quite that simple. The CAD software I used all those years (I am a mechanical drafter/detailer) is licensed with that company. I had a rather unique situation, most contractors don't have $1000's worth of software available to them for free on their home computers. I am listed with agencies looking for contract work. I live in a rural town on the NH/VT border so finding work in my field is limited w/o traveling up 80-100 miles each way :-/ Of course, I am looking for ANY type of work.

Bets of luck with your kitty - there is a helpful feline-cancer board on yahoogroups.com
