My Cat Pantufa Has Cancer... (Part I)


Many of my readers have already met my beautiful cat called Pantufa. I noticed a small lump on Pantufas body a few weeks ago - so I took her to the vet immediately. After Dr. Eduardo made the necessary examinations on her he informed me that it was a tumor and that I had 3 options: 

Put her through surgery and medication to remove the tumor...
Do nothing to her...
Put her to sleep...

The doctor made it clear that if I chose surgery, it wouldn’t guarantee that she would recover 100 percent! I had the weekend to decide the best option for Pantufa, and believe me it was extremely difficult. I cried the whole weekend… To me she seems so happy and relatively healthy enough so I would never bring myself to put her to sleep. I just cannot imagine her gone… To do nothing to her was also out of the question, so I had to decide and quick. On Monday (after the weekend)  I took Pantufa to the vet and I chose to go with the surgery hoping that Pantufa will come through it without a tumor. Miracles do happen…

Thank you so much. Pantufa is at home. I went to fetch her from the vet. The surgery has left her with a big incision, I have a photo of her on my recent post.

I also want you to know that i wish the very best for your kitten Sininho...
