My poor little cat is very sick. We moved about a month ago and she started acting strange. We thought she was just transitioning, but then she stopped eating & we noticed a lump on her chin. She's had tooth trouble in the past so we just thought it was that again.
Took her to the vet last night & they called this morning to say it's pretty bad. She has a tumor-- They h aven't run tests yet, but our vet said that her guess is that it's malignant. It's so large that they'd actually have to take part of her jaw off to get rid of it & they just don't do that with cats... so our only options are to give her some medicine & special food and see how she does or put her down.
I'm such a mess. Muffs is absolutely 100% part of our little family & I just don't know what I'd do without her. She's been such a ray of sunshine in my life & is my little helper.
I guess what it comes down
to is that I don't want to be selfish in keeping her alive just because I want her around. She must be in so much pain. But I also don't want to call the shots & take her life prematurely...
Have an y of you been through this? How did you know what to do?
