A sad day for our family

Friday, February 05, 2010

We found out today that our cat o 16 years has Squamous Cell Carcinoma. The outcome for this type of cancer is not good. The vet says less than 25% make it. He is having trouble eating and has to go from his crunchy food to soft food. The tumor is on his lower jaw and pushing up. This causes his tongue to stick out.
It's a sad day for us, we love the little Soxman.

    I've lost so many... and every one takes a piece of my heart when they go... I know you will do what gives the dear thing his dignity and spares him pain even at the expense of your own at losing him...

    I am so sorry to hear about your kittie's health. All of my pets are older and in their senior years. My cat, Aggie will be 17 in May. May you take comfort in knowing that Soxman has had 16 wonderful years with you.
