Sitting around on tissue paper and watching a cat toy spun by his human companion -- two old pleasures combined a couple of evenings ago.
I started to post last night, but a waiting cat was looming out of the corner of my eye. This morning there was to be a return to the vet for an ultrasound to see if the cancer is in an especially dangerous area -- the spleen -- however, I canceled after learning late yesterday that Ollie should go without food starting the evening before the appointment. I don't want to put him through that again. Let's see what we can do about the ultrasound and the spleen later. He's looking fine now and continues to eat and be active. Friends and neighbors, many with cat care experience, have been helping and offering support. In addition to that, last week I found another network of cat lovers, some with lots of experience taking care of cats with various cancers. Their stories and advice on how to know "when it's time" have been a great comfort and help. Some of them might be looking here at pictures of Ollie, so thanks for looking and just click on the "Ollie is your host" label if you just want to see posts with his photos. Clicking on a photo will get a larger view.
