    My precious old lady Bosun has cancer

    Bosun was my first failed foster almost 13 years ago. A few weeks ago I noticed her cheek was very swollen. At first we thought it was an infection and she was on antibiotics but it didn't get better. Last week I took her back and a different vet looked at her. She thought it was mouth cancer, and we got a biopsy done. I just got the test results. I don't know how long she has left but will be spoiled rotten (as always) and have all the treats, turkey, etc. that she wants.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Spoil her rotten and spend as much time with her you can. If she's in pain, can she get medicine for it?

    I'm so very sorry. Love and spoil your dear Bosun greatly, but you already know this and have been doing it for almost 13 years now.

    Dear old Bosun. Without you, she would not have had 13 wonderful loving years. Spoil her like crazy, and give her cuddles and kisses from me.

    I hope she is comfortable for as long as she is with you.

    I'm so sorry you've received such bad news. Enjoy the time with her, spoil her rotten and then some. Sending you both good thoughts and a big hug.

    She was trying to get into the pizza last night! No, Bosun, garlic and onions are NOT for kitties. She will get all the Thanksgiving turkey she wants though.

    Bosun update

    She's still hanging in there! She loves turkey, and mostly eats that, and specially-formulated kitty milk. She still fights her meds, though.

    I'm glad to hear she was able to eat her favourite... turkey. As long as she fights the medicine, I don't think she's feeling too bad. Give her what she wants - and lots of kisses, too.

    Hope you'll have her a good while longer.

    Good news - if Bosun still is feisty, that's wonderful! Eat up, Bosun!
