    Cali has lumps

    Had Cali at the vet for a health check and shots. Also had the vet look at the two lumps she has. The one on her side deflated completely when needle poked, likely a cyst. The one on her head, just above her left eye appears to be benign when the cells were looked at under the microscope. She also needs a dental. In about 6 months she will go back for bloodwork prior to having the dental and the head lump removed. I'm a little worried because she is 13 and is already on pain management meds as well as thyroid meds. Have to try to get her weight down a bit in these next 6 months to make the surgery a little safer.

    My beautiful, white kitty is not aging gracefully.

    Glad they were lumps of the non scary kind. Still, no fun getting poked and prodded. You and she are in our prayers.

    I'm sorry for your cat. It is very unpleasant when animals are sick. I myself, like animals, get sick, so it's like a tragedy. After all, the animal will not say that it hurts or what it feels, it becomes easier for it or not, and how it is possible to help in general.

    Death thought about it.
