Sorry to here about Dan the grandkitty.

The news at the vet was terrible.

Shreddy has a growth in his mouth that is probably cancer. The foul smell is necrotic tissue. The vet also felt a mass in Shreddy's abdominal area. We got it X-rayed. The mass was even bigger than it felt to the vet. It's probably malignant. It's about 8 cm the long way and maybe 5 the other way. There doesn't seem to be any point in putting Shreddy through a biopsy and ultrasound to properly diagnose the growth in his mouth. The vet thinks he has a few weeks. He gave me an anti-inflammatory/pain reliever for Shreddy. It's liquid, so I won't have to pill him.

Sigh. I'm going to miss that sweet boy when he goes. The vet said that it's time to bring him in when he stops eating.

Probably not. Then again, he was a cat. Define "normal".

One each for Shreddy and Dan the Cat. Oh TL, I am so sorry to hear about Shreddy. Both Dan and Shreddy have had good long loving lives. It is so painful to lose a furry member of the family. My heart goes out to both you and Stirling along with Dan the Cat's loving family.

Thanks everyone for the kind wishes.

Somebunny, Shreddy was 10 weeks old when we adopted him. Yup, over 18 years of his demands for loving. Such a sweet boy.
