People are so stupid.

Last night, Jack, one of my foster cats did something weird. It is not life threatening or even something warranting a visit to the vet. I typed in my question into google and came up with many results.

There are numerous questions online from stupid people with actual emergencies with their pets who are just posting the question online and...I guess...waiting for the "internet" to answer them.

What are these people thinking!?! Take your animals to the freaking vet!

For example, someone asked about their dog vomiting white foam, one said their cat had thrown up six times that day, one that hasn't peed for two days...all of these are potentially life threatening and cannot wait. If your cat, especially a male cat, has not peed in two days, it could die the next day.

Why are people so ignorant? Even if I was not educated about the health of cats and did not have experience with them, I would consider all of these incidents life threatening. I would not post the question online and wait for an answer. I would be in the car on the way to the vet.

People might say that they can't afford it. Well, if your child was throwing up six times, would you not take them to the hospital? No, of course not. You would get them the medical care they needed and figure out how to pay later.

Responsible pet parents would do that. Not having the money is not an excuse. Your pets depend on you to take care of them.
