As you all know, I was having some constipation problems, which my Mom thought we had fixed. Well, I did feel better for a bit, but then I started having problems again. It was really hurting me to poop! My Mom and Dad took me to the vet, and the vet said he thought I had a perianal fistula. He told Mom and Dad that a surgeon would be able to fix me right up, so they made an appointment for me.
Well, I had that appointment yesterday, and it wasn't very good at all. The surgeon saw my butt and said he didn't think it was a fistula--he thought it might be a tumor. He admitted me so they could do more tests and x-rays later in the day. I had to wait forever for them to get to me, but I understood because there were a lot of young cats who needed help and wouldn't be able to go without food as long as I can. Unfortunately, the surgeon discovered that the thing on my butt is part of a large, cancerous tumor that is blocking 90% of my rectum--that's why it hurts me so much to poop! Anyway, Mom and Dad are coming in to talk with the surgeon, but it looks like the best choice might be to, well, you know. I'm not really sure I want to sleep forever, but it does sound a lot more comfortable that I have been for the last few weeks. I'm really going to miss my Mom and Dad and Arthur, and I know they will miss me lots too.
So I just wanted to stop by and say "goodbye" to everyone. Take care of yourselves and all your kitties!
