Sweet as a Kiwi

Possibly has cancer

Over the last year, Kiwi has been losing weight. He's a big boy and to lose so much weight is frightening. I think I just figured out why. Kiwi was standing on the bed about 30 minutes ago and I realized his back left leg is trembling a little. I put my hand on his leg and his back leg is the size of a small ball. His whole leg is round. I felt his right back leg and it's nothing like it. I'm afraid Kiwi has cancer which would explain the weight loss. He's not crying out in pain, he's still eating, going potty and moving around. It's a holiday weekend right now and everything is closed, including tomorrow, Memorial Day. I will be keeping a close eye on Kiwi but I'm afraid I will have to make that final decision for him when things deteriorate. Kiwi is only 7 years old and I'm not ready for him to die. I've also never had to make a decision to end an animal's life. Kiwi has always been a joy and I can't imagine my life without him in it. He's the keeper of the kitties...he always takes care and bathes the others. Who's Kiwi's keeper?

I know if I didn't take Kiwi in 6 years ago, he wouldn't be around today. Kiwi found himself a home and a human to love him which is all he ever wanted. I just wish our time together would have been another 10-15 years but it looks like that time might be drastically cut short. He knows he's loved and whenever he does make that journey across the bridge, he will take that love with him and hold onto it until we are reunited. I love you Kiwi, no matter what!
