Not Good for Annie

Annie went to see the V-E-T dentist last Friday, and had x-rays done and had several biopsies done on her mouth. The results came back on Thursday and she has cancer. Although the previous biopsy showed no cancer, these new biopsies showed cancer. We don't know how long she has. She is getting shots of pain killer and antibiotics twice a day, and she is still eating her Costco Chick-Hen, and she had salmon yesterday. The V-E-T said if she wants a hamburger and a shake, that is fine with him as long as she is eating. She may have 2 weeks to 10 weeks. We don't know how she will do while the cancer progresses. Most of the bone is gone on the upper right side of her mouth, and she has holes into her nasal cavities. And all of this since mid-April.

This is a very difficult time for Maw and Paw. Annie was raised on a bottle from a wee little bitty thing. Maw tried to put her up for adoption, but cried all night, and Paw went to get her out of PetsMart the next day. Annie has always thought that she is a chuman (cat-human). She doesn't really appreciate other cats very much, and loves to lie in front of the computer screens when Maw and Paw are working. We will miss her terribly, but are going to do the best we can while she is still with us.

We are so sorry to read this....Our loudest purrs to Annie and to you, and universal Light and Blessings.

We lost our Annie in February, for some mystery reason, and it's unbearably hard.

We purray that when she no longer has good quality of life, she has a peaceful and merciful crossing to the Bridge. Our Annie doesn't like other kitties much, either, but maybe she can greet *your* Annie.

(((Hugs))) and kitty kisses.

We're so sorry to hear about Annie. We went through something remarkably similar with our beloved cat, Quincy. We kept her with us for 3-4 weeks. We knew it was time when she stopped her nightly bedtime ritual with my husband - something she had done her entire life. We had a lovely last day together, and then helped her over the bridge. Enjoy this precious time with Annie - our thoughts are with you.
