The cat we adopted a couple months back, Oscar, has a rapidly-enlarging cancerous growth on his right side. Crud. We're going to get it removed and hope that it's limited to that one growth and not indicative of a wider spread of the nastiness. He otherwise seems okay...
So he goes in Saturday morning for a pre-op test (to see if he'd make it through surgery) and if that looks okay he goes back Wednesday to have it removed. They said they might have to remove some portion of a couple ribs, too, so it could get a bit dicey.
Jeebus that's not good :( I'd hate that to happen to anyone of my kitties ( there's four of them) Best of luck tho and I hope things go well :)
