My beautiful cat Sukki wasn't too well on Friday - didn't eat her food and didn't get
out of her bed all day. She came round a little in the evening and had her usual
cuddles with me, but I knew something wasn't right. Saturday morning we took
her to the vet where he discovered she had a swelling inside her tummy. So off
we went to the animal hospital with her for an xray and was told she needed an
operation immediately as she had a large mass inside her.To cut a long story
short by 6pm she was out of surgery and recovering well so our hopes were
high for her return home the following day. 9.45pm we get a call from the vet to
say she had passed away!!!!! My husband and I are both in shock - sukki has
never been ill until that day and the mass was 4"x6" in her little tummy.
She has been by my side all the time of my recovery, from my op to getting
through chemo, purring her little head off and giving me the occasional lick.
She was 14yrs old but still like a kitten. She was a rescue cat from the RSPCA
for my mother in law and when she passed away 10yrs ago we brought Sukki
home with us. Our home is so empty now without her.
Now the good news - had my 1st 12wkly check up today and all is well.I have
been having a lot of stomach problems but my oncologist says it is normal
after the extent of surgery I had - so thats put my mind at rest because after
ten months from my op I thought everything should be back to normal by now.
Hope I haven't gone on too much but needed to tell someone.
