Unhappy Crappy Crap...

My 12 year old cat, Murphy, has not been doing very well the last 2 weeks. Not eating or drinking, being lethargic though she wants to be herself.

Been doing the Vet thing all over town, looking for answers. Bloodwork, stomach fluid work, sonograms and now the $2K exploritory/biopsy surgery.

Biopsy resuslts come in two days, but from what the doc saw, he said it did not look good. Cancer.

We are not counting are chickens before the official results, but we are ready for the worst. The wife and I have cried alone, together and with friends and family; we have made our peace.

Murphy has been home for the last 3 days, and we are doing everything to keep her comfy and in full love.

This blows, but I understand the circle of life thing. We've been here before, and it hurt bad...until I found Murphy as a stray on an old route of mine at work 12 years ago. And for sure, 12 years of love from Murphy far out-weighs these moments of sadness.

The circle is now almost complete, one more time...

Sorry to hear that, loosing an animal hurts just as bad as loosing a family member.

My brother in law just went through the same with his cat.....cancer. We've had cats in the past too, as well as dogs. They become part of the family, so it's tough. Just do as you would do for any family member to keep them comfortable and not let them suffer. Sorry to hear about it.

Sorry to hear that

I hope I'll never have to do that with my 5 year old dog. One day I know I may but just can't face it.

Jason, I lost my favorite cat to cancer about 6 years ago. he was about 12. I say "about" cause he adopted us as a young'un. We had to put him down cause he was in pain.

I'm man enough to say, I cried like a baby.

Thank you all for the heartfelt responces, very very much appreciated.

Got Murph's biopsy results today, all tests came back 'positive' for cancer.

Pat and I will take Murphy to the vets tomorrow, and let her go...

Thank you all again for your wonderful support.
