Adventures with Charlie cat

Mostly I've been stressing about my cat Charlie.  He's been home a week now since his operation and stay at the pet hospital.  I barely see him, though, he's hiding, because he knows I need to give him medicine.  It must be very bitter because most of it ends up on the walls or on me instead of in his mouth.

This morning I took him back to the vet to get his stitches out.  Good news, he gained a half pound.  Bad news - his tumor was malignant and he has 6 months to 1.5 years left.  The vet told me of a specialist in pet chemotherapy which may extend Charlie's life.  She said the cat wouldn't suffer. I asked if she felt it was worth it.  She said she couldn't really advise me. 

So I guess I'm going to go check out the chemo vet next...

  1. I am sorry to hear. I am glad he is doing better. I love my cats and would do anything to prolong their lives as long as they wouldn't be suffering.

    Charlie is a cutie, I love that picture.

  2. So sorry to hear about your cat. It's an almost impossible situation waiting for the inevitable but wanting to do everything that you possibly can.
