A few weeks ago we noticed some swelling on my cat Meeko’s cheek. He let me poke and prod the bump, didn’t seem bothersome at all.
We had a biopsy done and it came back as oral squamous cell carcinoma. We spoke to our normal vet, who is a board certified feline vet, and had a second opinion from a highly recommended surgeon, and decided it would be best to spoil him even more in the time he has left, as opposed to surgery or chemo/radiation. I am completely heartbroken. This cat is my world, my soulmate. Even my husband jokes how I love Meeko the most. I don’t know how I’m going to do this.
I’m so scared too. I don’t want to see him or pain or suffer at all. He’s acting so normal, but I’m so worried and scared about having to watch him decline.
I know everyone says I’ll know when it’s time, and I know I will. I have my husband who is a huge support but I am just broken over this.
I just came here to vent I guess? And to talk to people who truly understand. Meeko is my baby, I’m so afraid to lose him.
