    Merlin

    Merlin went in for a dental today. Two extractions and a biopsy later, he's home. Vet said he has an aggressive looking growth in his mouth and he's seen this type before. Very good chance it's cancer and if it is, I elect for no further treatment. I will just spoil him for the next few months or however long he's with me.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Oh dear. I hope beyond hope that it is NOT cancer. If it is, I do hope Merlin will be pain-free for a long time. I know he'll be spoiled rotten!

    Hugs to you and dear Merlin.

    Aww, here's hoping it isn't cancer, but if it is, we know you just spoil him with love and kisses until it's time. We'll be thinking of you!

    Slick, I sure hope it's not cancer. This brings back memories of my RB Sunny. I also decided to do the same thing that you have if it is the cancer. Lots of prayers and positive thoughts are being sent Merlin's way. Please take care. (((HUGS)))

    Poor Merlin, having that nasty thing in his mouth. I hope it doesn't affect his eating. How old is he?

    I go that route with mine, as well; just keep them comfortable, and love them.

    Merlin, a dental and extractions?! You will be eating again in no time, kitty. Sending you chin rubs!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope it's not painful, but it must be bothering him. Keep him comfortable and give him lots of love. I understand your decision.

    Sending lots of positive thoughts and kisses to Merlin, and hugs to you!

    I'm so sorry Merlin is not well. Here's hoping the Dr gives better news after the biopsy.

    Sending good thoughts and prayers Merlin's way. I do hope it's not cancer, and if it is, I hope it's the type he can live with for a long, long, time.

    Prayers and good warm wishes for dearest Merlin and for you too, Vicki. We are praying for promising news from the vet about the biopsy, but whatever it turns out to be, you and Merlin will continue to share your wondrous love for all the time you have together.. on this plane and for always.

    God bless you both.

    Love from Pat and cats
