Re: Help My Cat Is Sick
Yesterday they tested the urine and it came back with nothing so today they did they did the ultrasound and unfortunately the vet says that my kitty has a tumor. I really don't know where to go from here.

His appetite was good when this first started now he's not eating. He is still drinking though. I really don't know what to do.

I thought there might be a chance but yesterday my husband was given more bad news by his doctor...he isn't able to return to work for two more weeks. So we have no money.

The vet said to up his dosage on his medicine and we will go from there.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone...ain't no borderline psychotic emotional outbursts either.

Some days you just have to create your own sunshine.

Re: Help My Cat Is Sick
Read an article where the swifr sweeper mop fluid can cause liver failure.
My old cat was turning yellow under his black fur and losing weight. I guess they get it on their paws when you mop and lick it. It is like a poison.
He did pass away, but he was 16 and a ferel (wild) can that adopted us, when he was a kitten.
Now, I shut the screen and keep the cats out till the floor is dry.
It is hard to choose between our priorities and our pets. We love how we love. But there are so many homeless cats that need a good spot.
We currently have plenty and another wild boy stops by to hang out.
One of our cats has one tooth, a fat tumor on her back and blind in one eye.
When she goes, she goes, she has had a great life here, she is 16 and we rescued here from the humane society 12 years ago. So unless it is an injury that I can't treat with hydrogen peroxide, or to get fixed, we don't use the vet.
The Husband is irreplaceable, so he comes first, every time. He helps with the mortgage and bills, the cat doesn't. tomato
One back turns in parting to turn and turn again. Leaving is never going, its circling round the bend.

Re: Help My Cat Is Sick
I'm sorry to hear that verysad
Do you know where the tumor is at and how big it is?
Cause i would think that this acute reaction of your kitty vomiting and not eating is a little weird when the tumor was already there for some time but still small enough now to be sure it's a tumor?

I mean when the tumor is big enough and is pressing on his stomach or something i can understand.
But it's not clear from what i read..

So sorry to hear everything you all are going through!

My earlier post was about ways ...and hoping for you ...to get more diagnostic information before having to pay for an ultrasound

First, did an actual radiologist read the X-ray and/or ultrasound? Do you have an actual report from them?

Usually, ultrasound characteristics of a tumor can be assessed to tell if a mass looks benign or not


Do you know what those characteristics of the tumor are? Size...location...in/near an organ...superficial or deep...echotexture...etc.

Ultrasound actually is my area of expertise. For humans though... but still has the same properties in cats and dogs

If you think this corona virus outbreak in China is a natural phenomenon, you know nothing about what is really going on in the world!
The gifts of the Holy Spirit, you do not receive in a school of charlatans.
Beware of misinformation agents, they are infiltrating everywhere.
Most of the things that have taught you about the story, is a farce.
The truth is still out there

Re: Help My Cat Is Sick
All this time people invested into knowing about this cat, lady finds it, can't afford it and nobody can donate to the cat? Call a local vet and make the donations there. Even if she didn't get all the money, Im sure it would bennefit the vet to do surgery anyway. Sad. What's the point?
Hope you can afford to put it to sleep op. hf
People were only in it for entertainment value. Nobody really cared.

Who knows but the prayers didn't work. The only thing that would have helped was cash.

Unfortunately I put my cat to sleep this morning. He kept vomiting, was barely drinking, and wouldn't eat anything at all. He had lost another pound since the last vet visit. I asked if there was anything else we could do other than surgery but there wasn't. He couldn't even hold his medicine down. Surgery was going to be at least $1,000 maybe more. I think I did all I could do without going into more debt.

Re: Help My Cat Is Sick
"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Author unknown..."

Sorry to hear about your loss, OP. I've lost cats before, many dear cats. But because of the three other cats I lost, I can tell you for sure they know they are going somewhere.

My last cat who died was afraid of dieing, he postponed his death as much as he could, it was like he was suffering but he knew I was suffering too. When he could take suffering no more, I told him he could go, that he shouldn't be afraid, that I was sure we would meet again. Then he went, little by little, leaving through his lungs, in portions, as his heartbeat was getting slower and slower, I was hugging him close to my heart, and I could tell the moment he was completely gone. He was not there, yet, I could feel him from everywhere. Jorge was his name, he was a dear cat to me. I'm sure we'll all meet them again, at the right moment in time.

Hugs to you =^.^=
