It's a waste of money
The caregiver called the woman up and spoke with her. The woman said her husband is against her sending the cat in because if the cat dies, then it'll be a waste of money.
The caregiver told her that if the cat dies, then she'll feel guilty for not doing anything, to which she agreed.
She has however agreed to let someone take the cat to the vet - and she said she'll leave cash for it - but she cannot come to the vet with the cat. She told the caregiver that if there is a problem, the vet can call her.
We'll trying to make arrangements now to bring the cat down as soon as we can.
