I somehow lost my password and username for this board. I have it for BCC and thought it was the same. But anyway, as you saw, we lost our beautiful Princess. I wanted you to know she did so well after her cancer diagnosis. She had surgery but then after that, another bump came up. I decided not to put her thru multiple surgeries. The first time the incision was so big I just didnít feel it was fair. I called the breeder where Debbie got her and she said that their life span is 12 years. At diagnosis she was 11. So we put her on medicinal mushrooms and immune support therapy and I do believe it gave her another year and a half of good quality of life. She only started to go downhill the last month. She started losing a lot of weight in Feb. I called my vet in Ohio and she suggest an anabolic steroid to ease pain, help with appetite and build muscle. I gave her that for one month but couldnít tell that it helped. She was so thin you could see her ribs (she had no body fat to begin with so she couldnít afford to lose any). She started limping. I took her to the vet her in Florida, and they said they didnít think she was in pain. Then her back legs started swelling. Fluid retention. I assumed kidney fairlure but vet said cancer can do that. Yet, she still acted happy. She spent her days laying in the sun by the pool and snuggling with me at night. It was tearing us apart to watch her go downhill yet still enjoy her life. She never missed the litterbox. She was just a good girl. She wasnít talking anymore like she did. Finally I prayed and asked God to let me know when it was time to let her go. The next morning she was bleeding from 2 teats...2 that were NOT originally involved in cancer. I told Dan, I think itís time. She spent her last day laying in the sun and we took her in at 5 PM. It was the hardest day of my life...to look at her laying in the sun enjoying herself and knowing it was her last day. But I had to tell myself that I was saving her from suffering. THe vet said she had to be miserable as thin as she was. She said it probably took all her energy just to breathe. This has been soooo hard. At Debbieís, she was with a lot of other cats and I think she was a bit stressed. At our house, she only had to contend with 2 others and she ruled the roost. TIme flies but she lived with Deb 2 years and with us 6 years. She really had a wonderful life with us. We both miss her so much. I am still grieving and been wanting to write but I donít like to write on fb as it doesnít seem as personal as on here. I know you all loved Deb and loved Princess. Me too. Iíve lost a lot of cats over the years and I know it gets easier with time but this is still raw and fresh and Iím so sad. Thank you all for listening to me. I know you all understand as you all love a special cat too. Blessings to all of you and your furbabies. I will try to post here more often.
