My Cat Ate A Shoelace, Part 2

(Part 1 is here)

They shaved my cat's belly and gave him an ultrasound ($300 cha-ching!). There's definitely some shoelace in there. The choice was: (1) go under the knife (cha-ching! cha-ching! cha-ching!), or (2) wait a bit to see if he'll pass it.

The chances of him passing it without it causing further damage or inflammation? Very very slim.

So the little fool's going under the knife this afternoon.

From start to finish, this little episode will cost about the same as the last 4 repairs on my Grand Prix combined. In no way did that make me hesitate, but, man. A shoelace!

Ignore this block if you somehow can see it. It's a hack to force the 'yieldbox' div to be as wide as the viewport allows, even if the content isn't wide.
