$4000.00 ER Surgery Co-pays

$ 600.00 Water Heater
$Priceless Damage from flooded basement when above heater let loose (lost books, lost comics, lost sanity).
Cat poops out a 12" ribbon & then manages to get both front paws caught under the weight of the dishwasher (don't ask) and screams like the devil has bit him in the ass. He is still alive, has a bit of a limp today, but I fear he's used up all but one of his 9 lives.
