Our cat Garett had an abdominal ultrasound yesterday.
Just heard back from the vet a few minutes ago. Pancreatitis, enlarged nodules, inflammation. Possibly cancer.

We just lost his sister Gretta in February. And Jeffey in January. Alex’s cancer is in remission thank god.

Dust that biopsy is clean. Please. Can’t lose another furbaby.
Oh, no......I'm so, so sorry. For all of it. Sending dust.

@yssie well, that’s a blessing! I hope the vet is able to get it sorted out, and Garett continues to be his old self.

Other than inconsistent litterbox use he seems perfectly happy and healthy! Eating, playing, purring, snuggling... It's shocking. We took him in for a checkup because his #2 was more liquid than usual... We expected to hear "he's got a kitty cold". Maybe pancreatitis, because he's had that before. The only other thing of note is gradual weight loss - a pound over the last two months. Bloodwork came back clean, so the vet said "let's do an abdominal ultrasound", and - here we are. I don't know how his bloodwork was clean when there's apparently so much wrong! :(sad We trust our vet completely, I'm sure they double-checked everything ;(

I'm starting to think we should just take them all in for X-rays and ultrasounds once a year. Preemptively.
Hoping your fur baby is ok. Sending good thoughts your way.

I'm so sorry about kitty @yssie It hurts me to no end that they don't display pain and discomfort until it is often times far too late to do anything. Sending good wishes and vibes!

We have Ronan who is a Labbish ( he was from a rescue, so not sure how much lab he is). He brays like a hound with all the extended notes and is 3 yrs old.
Finnbar and Bailey our 6 and 1/2 yr old boy kitty siblings.
Then there's Molly( aka Molly Mae, aka Molly Mayhem). Molly is 3 and a half. IMG_20190510_153445655.jpg IMG_20200312_122338095.jpg IMG_20200215_110848877.jpg

Finnbar and Bailey are are pure mush maturity, sweet as sugar Ronan and Molly are just as sweet, they just have an overriding case of " Terminator".
Love them to bits.

Not quite furry but I purchased 6 chicks recently to add to my existing flock. They’re so cute and goofy. I also purchased 24 hatching eggs that are currently in my incubator. I clearly like chickens. I’m hoping to add quails and ducks to my wannabe homestead this year too.

Garett has small cell lymphoma in his small intestine and colon. He also has severe inflammation in the colon. They found bacteria as well - this is apparently quite uncommon.

Immediate treatments are prednisone, antibiotics, and chemo.
Once the acute issues are stabilized, long-term treatments are likely to include continued antibiotics and chemo. There's no curing this, but effective treatment should keep him comfortable and happy.

Median survival is 18 months. 2+ years is not uncommon.
He's 13 right now, so 2+ years puts him at - well, very senior.

We'll just have to wait and see how he does with his first round of meds.

My entire year was made last night when my problem child Maliik -- who has never bonded with me after nearly 11 yrs -- slept next to me and maintained contact all night. He's always slept on the bed with me but never within touching distance. This is huge. I was in shock, tears, and fist pumping all at once. I stayed in one position all night in fear that I'd ruin the moment if I moved. When he shifted position throughout the night, he always snuggled his back & butt into my side. It may never happen again but last night was enough to last me the rest of my life. Still in shock, still occasionally in tears, and still fist pumping like I won an Olympic gold medal.
