    Very bad news for Oliver

    This past week I took Oliver in for a dental and the vet took a biopsy from his mouth. We got the results back today and he has scaqumas cell cancer. There is a very low one-year survival rate regardless of what treatment options I undertake.

    I just lost Miss Bear less than 2 weeks ago and Conner in July, I am not ready to loose Oliver so soon

    Aww, Cheryl, our thoughts are with you. The problem with helping and loving so many kitties is that that means more of them to worry about, and some day lose. But I know it is worth it for the joy they bring us.
