So I will start with this has not happened yet but likely will.
Recently I bought a house and my gf and I moved hundreds of miles and started new jobs (our first big people jobs). However the situation is that her 18yo cat was just diagnosed with kidney failure. She has had this can since she was 6 and it is very special to her. I also like the cat, but we are in no way in a financial situation do treatment.
I am unsure how much vet bills will cost, but we’re are poor poor from moving/buying house etc (e.g. I have $700 in checking 3,000 on a credit card, and 0 savings. Her situation is even worse).
I don’t want this to cause a relationship problem, I am look for advice about how to handle this before hand. I think she will choose financial ruin just to get a few more months with this cat since she has done it once before and it wasn’t even her cat. But that’s beside the fact.
