Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes
Join Date: May 2006
I picked Tyler up tonight to bring him upstairs and felt a lump on his belly.
I checked it out and it's on one of his mammary glands. It seems huge to me. It's pretty hard too. I didn't play with it too much. I am afraid that it's cancer so I didn't want to mess with it.
Now I am afraid to call the vet. He is 16 and will be 17 the first of July. I don't want to know if it's bad.
I have had him for so long. He has always been so faithful to me. We really have been through a lot together. College. My parents break up. My mom leaving. My sister getting engaged which prompted my mom to take back the house and then my dad leaving. My break up with a guy I dated for 7 years. The rough time after that. My first year of living with Jay (that was so hard!)
We also had so many good times together. The last 5 years have gotten better every year. It's so wonderful now and I don't want to loose him but I know that he is getting old for a kitty.
I really just don't want to know. I cannot imagine putting him under anesthesia - I just feel he is too old. We lost our first cat (years ago) when she went for a routine tooth cleaning.
I also don't always think that cutting open cancer is a good thing. I really feel that it makes it spread in some cases.
I really don't know what to do.
