Real Women, had (still have) choice of Colourful Easter Egg or Cross With Glowing Drape for Apr 20 in DX Spots  column in local hamrag. Would So Love to drop Easter Egg Cat into that spot, but that'd get me fired as Ye Ed quicker'n anything else I can think of. Already using lilyspad's offering of last March 30 for grafik on title page -- plus make Award Cert including it, in colour, as meant to do last year but ran outta time.

Thought I'd cropped pic, but see I didn't. May no longer have this angular type face used to catptionate (unable to catptionate  now due to loss of PaintShopPro pgm in Sun crash&burn, earlier groused about; scanner doesn't work w/o it either).  Hope it & Expert Elite, fave script font for Edited Rags, will return at some point to be determined.
Also swearing at stink bugs who keep moving noisily & avoiding grabs.  Flang Oot back door.
Part of absence after lunch was to retrieve some info for (gasp) taxes.

So some of you may remember last week I posted about how my mothers cat had a fatty lump, which the Vet referred to as a tumor, and wanted to perform sugery because according the X-Ray, "it hadn't spread". So the cat has the surgery, everything goes well, seems to be recovering fine.

Today the Vet calls my mother and sells her the biopsy shows Fibrosarcoma, and immediately goes on about consulting an oncologist and radiation, and chemo, which is both A. Unaffordable and B. Quite frankly absurd to put a near 13 year old cat through. Unfortunately the vet was light on further details as far as prognosis, etc. etc., and that's how it was left.

This is very upsetting to me obviously, part of me almost wishes that it was over now, so I could grieve and move on, rather than dragging it on for however long it might be, knowing what the inevitable conclusion will be. Anyone have similar experiences, what is the typical prognosis is since we're just going to let it be? Two months? Six months? A Year? I'm just really bummed out now about the whole situation, especially since the Vet kind of set our expectations pretty high, only to have them drop to nothing once reality set in.

I am so sorry sweetie, that totally sucks. Fibrosarcoma is one of the cancers that can occur at a vaccination site directly because of the vaccination. Did the vet give your mother's cat his vaccinations where the tumor was found? I am guessing that it was the scruff of the neck. For 15-20 years the protocol has been for vets to give cats their vaccinations on their legs so that if there is a resulting sarcoma the leg can be removed for a better chance at a cure. Unfortunately many vets still give them at the scruff of the neck. Ask the vet about the last vaccinations given in that area. They should have a manufacturer and batch information. Some of the manufacturers do give a settlement (usually less than $1,500) to go towards the vet care. You can also research online the prognosis for this kind of cancer.

Did they do a biopsy or full removal of the tumor. If it was full removal, did they get clean margins?

It was a full removal of the tumor with clean margins as far as I am aware. I am having difficulty finding prognosis information in regards to just letting it be, and not treating it otherwise. All the websites give prognosis information assuming you have 5 grand to drop on Chemotherapy and Radiation, which none of us do. I will mention to her about the vaccination information. Thanks for the help.

Because Gremlin was growing bigger than Ben Hurr, and was a loooong kitten - How I never noticed them (probably Benner's) doing recon to find
out where I hid the treats...
But the day I came home to find that high cupboard open and their treats gone and their treat ball broken into pieces on the floor...
was the day I installed baby locks on all the cupboards.

Man! they were so pleased with themselves - then gave me hell for the locks hahaha!

I have baby locks on all my cupboards because of Gremie. I used to just have locks on the bottom cupboards but Gremie started knocking things out of the top cupboards as well. Jack was thrilled when Gremie dumped the dog biscuits on the floor.

Right now I'm kinda sorta dodging Easter themed nails. Gonna do a matte black and metallic thing later today when I have time. Right now am up to no good around the kitchen. Bah! work work work around the house. I wouldn't mind it so much if it were just MY mess, but it's almost never my mess at all.

/how does its legs even hold it up???

If you love something, set it free
If it comes back, it will always be yours
If it doesn't come back, it was never yours to begin with

But.......

If it just sits in your living room, messes
with your stuff, eats your food, uses your
telephone, takes your money, and doesn't
appear to realize that you actually set it
free in the first place;
You either married it or gave birth to it.


//shamelessly stolen from somewhere I don't remember


Word.

Many, many years ago I actually dumped a guy after having the "he's a luser who will never help because he's an exceptionally good looking chauvanistic douchebag who doesn't want to, not because he's truly stupid" epiphany. He came over to get me for our date (like, an hour early!) and next thing I know he's sighing heavily and "helping" me do dishes because he was getting tired of waiting for me. His much faster technique was turning on warm water and then wiping the plates under the running water before putting them, still wet and unclean, in my cabinet. He did a couple of them like that right in front of me. It took me a minute before it really registered because I was so shocked. I yelled at him "what is wrong with you?" he gives me this look - like he's challenging me, but his feelings are hurt at the same time - and says "I never had to do dishes before. The women in my house always kept our kitchen clean". Thank the GODS I wasn't attached to him, because I could hear the round one bell in my head right before I heard the nuclear explosion and felt my eyes get all twitchy. I think he was just an asshole who liked to start fights and did not realize I wasn't that into him. I mean REALLY? No. Just NO.

My opinion - such as it is - is the same thing I tell my other fighters of the C (as I reach my 14th year in april) - if your cat is not suffering, nor is in any pain, and your cat doesn't give one hot damn what the vet says - you could be with your friend for more years than you'd expect.
If your cat (like I tell my human fighters here) decides its not worth it to keep going, then nothing you or anyone else says or does can stop the fast decline to peace.
That probably makes zero sense.

If your cat is full of piss and vinegar and maybe just wants to spite everyone - expect your friend to be around for as many years as it decides to.
/I have known other cats who got same diagnosis - decided not to do the chemo and the cat lived to almost 22. Never in pain, never suffered.

Had my protien shake, banana, and pain meds in an attempt to get the motor started.
All it made was a noise like "BLARRRGH PPPBBBTTT"...not good. Sorta like giving one the finger.
To complete my happiness, it's snowing again. :-P
Y'all understand 'motor'='body', right?


I figured that, but I reckoned you were referring to a certain part of your body.


/wasn't gonna get into WHICH part
//different body parts have different periodic maintenance routines
///and yield different, err, 'results'.


Thanks, Uncle Cabbage...naw, the whole works just hurts.
I was thinking more of Bill the Cat and his trademark "Ack ththbbbth" rather than rude sound effects from a certain area.

Oh, man, I am so sorry. I've heard of fibrosarcoma but never in all my years (even when I was in veterinary) have I seen one. It's not just vaccinations they are linked to, btw. It's ANY injection and the reason for this is unknown. I've never even heard of it in a dog, but I know they can get it. At least that's what the Merck's Manual told me when I was in my schoolin'. They're not very common - at least not in my area. Pooey. I was so hoping it was the common liposarcoma - those types of lumps usually are - and she'd be just peachy fine.

Prognosis is poor, as I'm sure you know. Just keep her happy and comfy. How much time she's got probably depends a lot on if they got it all and if it's already metastized or not. Because they are so rare in my area (or simply not treated, which is why I never encountered them when I was in veterinary) I don't have the experience to say much more than "supportive care", but that's because it's what I would do. Money is the primary issue, with age a huge secondary reason to not put her through that.

I am so sorry for your family. That just blows. :'-( There are not enough frowny faces in the world for that crap.

I had an old manager who had a sarcoma on his face they removed. Size of a golf ball. Once it healed and because he gives absolutely zero farks what anyone thinks - he didn't get the plastic surgery to cover the whole - so you could see right into his mouth, see his teeth. Him and I always got a laugh out of the startled and OMFG looks he got from staff but he eventually got it covered so he could eat properly.
