Pray for my little one...

My baby was diagnosed with cancer yesterday. It's breaking my heart, but the surgery is Tuesday and vet says the lump is small since I screen her often (she had a benign cyst in 2006).

Now I know why God had me buy a house that went up 20%, sell it after a year, so I could give her the best treatment...but I'd sell my own kidney to do it even if I didn't have the funds.

Anyone have a kitty with breast cancer that went on to live several more years.ImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1400287737.830261.jpg

I have no experience with kitties suffering from cancer, but I fully understand how you would do anything in your power to help give her as long a good quality life as possible. I have 3 permanent feline residents here and am very bonded to them.

Since it was found early, it sounds as if she has a great chance. Best of luck and my thoughts are with both of you.

I have had a kitty with breast cancer. They can be more robust than you think. Your sweetie has my prayers.

2035,

Sending a prayer right now.

Please keep us updated. Since you have kept an eye on it, it sounds hopeful. Please try to keep good thoughts.

I hope things work out for your kitty.

Speaking of cats though, did you see that film clip of the cat attacking a dog who was biting the leg of that toddler that was on the news a couple days ago? Amazing!

Prayers for your Kitty having a complete recovery. She has a wonderful parent so that will make all the difference.

Best wishes for kitty. My doggie lived for many years after breast cancer surgery. She had more lumps but was happy as a clam.

She's a beautiful kitty and obviously well-loved. She looks very much like a calico girl I had years ago.

Best of luck and I will be thinking of both of you on Tuesday.

A couple of questions... how old is she? Did she ever have any kittens?

I have a cat going through a "Parkinsons" problem. The vet didn't think it would make it this far. It's a cat.....I love it....but it's a cat. I won't make any friends.....but don't spend stupid amounts of money on it. Your life will go on.....

Good grief. This is one of the least useful or compassionate posts I have ever seen on this forum.

Your use of the word "it" speaks volumes.

And then.....there is another way to look at it....which you couldn't do....you look at the MOST negative side of it.....lovely. Losing a pet you love....while inevitable....is still not pleasant. And....while my cat is dying, I can't possibly say anything......if it doesn't agree with you.
