My Kitten Needs Surgery
Ever since I have had Tess, my long haired kitten, she has had a small knot on her right shoulder. The vets has been keeping an eye on it and they told me last Saturday that they need to go in and remove it. I actually thought it was something that was stuck in her and was trying work its way out on its own. It almost looks like a zit that needs to be popped.
At first they thought it was a fiberous reaction to her shots because it was so small. Now it has grown and its long in nature, almost to her bone area they said. They believe it is a fiberous tumor and they want to test it for cancer.
The vet, which is strictly a Kitty Doctor, in fact that is what it is called, has told me that it maybe a pretty long incision area since they do not know actually how long this tumor is.
I am so worried about her. Tess is only 9 months old and panics when she is alone. They asked me to bring her in the night before, which will be Wednesday to help me out and give her a chance to calm down. Her surgery is scheduled for Thursday am. I will be able to bring her home Thursday evening.
I just hate the thought of her being alone Wednesday night without her sister and brother. She crys when she can't find them in the house.
Sorry to vent like this but I have noticed that everyone here is such a great support to everyone.
I am just sick to think of what the outcome of the tests will be. I so hope its not cancerous.
