Poor India

For those of you that know India as my fat cat, who used to weigh in over 13 lbs... she's now down to 5lbs 7 oz. She's had thyroid issues for a couple of years now, and has been shedding the weight, but lately she's been looking sick, so off to the vets she went. Diagnosis: She has a large, aggresive, inoperable tumor wrapped around her pancreas. All that can be done is to make her comfortable until such a time as she's in pain, and then the next step is obvious. I can take comfort in the fact that she's had a good life, and had 11 more years than she could have done, had she received her scheduled lethal injection that day rather than being adopted... Still, it's sad.

That is sad. I just found out in may my cat has Diabetes so now I have to give her insulin shots twice a day and then a couple weeks later we found out she has breast cancer. So basically we just keep her happy and comfortable.
