*SIGH*...<br><br><br><br>
We found out yesterday (after loads of tests and xrays) that our 12 year old cat Wizzy has liver cancer (caused by diffuse iris melanoma). He's never been sick a day in his life so it comes as quite a blow.<br><br><br><br>
We went through all his "options" with the vet and really, there are no options left now except to make him as comfortable as possible. So we going to take an holistic approach to maintain his health.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone else with a kitty with cancer and would like to talk?<br><br><br><br>

I am so sorry, Misanthropy. Cancer is an awful thing. I have never had a cat with it, but I did have 3 mice who did.<br><br><br><br>
Wizzy is a beautiful kitty. And I think you are a wonderful kitty mommy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
(((((HUGS)))))) again.

I just hope that he is not suffering or feeling too uncomfortable right now.

That is so sad, I hope you can find something that helps.<br><br>
Tincture of Reishi mushroom has been found to shrink cancerous tumors<br><br><br><br>
I had a cat for 17 years that had cancer in her trachea I had to have her put to sleep when it got to the point that she was having a hard time breathing. It was very hard.

Thank you for the suggestion. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I've signed up for the Holisticat list and will also be going through all my natural health books for herbal and homeopathic treatments.<br><br><br><br>
When he gets a bit better and more sturdy after this round of antibiotics for a related infection, I'm going to also contact a naturopathic vet in the area.

<p>i am sorry for that</p>
<p> </p>
<p>everyone today i touched warda's (the cat)  nipple and i kinda felt a lump around it how would i know if it's nothing because i am not sure if it's a lump i touched her again and i still can't tell if it's a lump or nothing </p>
<p> </p>
<p>if it's not growing does that mean she's safe and besides she doesn't look sick</p>
<p> </p>
<p>do cats with cancer look sick?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you very much</p>
