My best friend who lives in San Diego, California has a beautiful cat named Roxy who has a very fast growing cyst or maybe tumor on her shoulder. Roxy was supposed to have surgery yesterday, but they realized the surgery was going to be too extensive. They may need to remove part of her bone from her shoulder. Stef's cats are just like her babies to her. All of us cat lovers understand how that is :) Please pray for her that all goes well and maybe the problem is not as bad as they are worried it is. The cost was supposed to be $370 now it is $2.500 (this is California fees). Stef is mostly worried about Roxy of course, however, the sticker shock never helps in these situations.
The SPECIALIST said certain vaccines were sometimes causing cancers in cats. I haven't gotten the details on this. I will certainly find out more and post what I learn about this.
Please send positive thoughts, purrs, and prayers her way. You've all certainly helped me in the past. Maybe we can work a little miracle for her too.
Here are some photos of Stef with her kitties - Roxy and Oliver:
