    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.

    My heart is aching for you. It seems these kind of things come in a series. I wish I had some magic words to make it all go away, but I don't. Just know we are all sending up prayers for you and Oliver.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    We have an appointment with the dental specialist on Thursday. They will try to remove as much of the tumour as possible, but I will have to see what other treatment options are available. From what I read chemotherapy doesn't effect this type of cancer but radiation may buy a little more time. After Thursday I am going to have to make some decisions, but for now Oliver is doing fine and I am giving him anything he wants. All the literature says it is only a matter of months once the diagnosis is made
