    Okay boys and girls, here's today's word: hemangiosarcoma

    When Oscar had his dental surgery last week a small bump was also removed from between his nose and eye. Turns out it's a tumour on a blood vessel - a hemangiosarcoma.

    This occurs in less than 2% of cats. My vet was not surprised that, of course, one of MY cats had it.

    Looks like they got the margins; these tumours don't metastasize like others do. Still, at my vet's suggestion I included a scan of the report in an email to Cole's oncologist.

    Oscar is happy, pain-free, eating well and purring!

    Great news! Glad you're doing so well, Oscar!

    Death thought about it.

    That's wonderful! I'm glad that Oscar's vet got good margins.
    Of course, YOUR cat would have this.
    Hugs and kisses to Oscar!
