Just wanted to give you kind souls an update on my sweet Destiny.  I helped her 
cross the bridge last week, just a few weeks after her diagnosis.  The vet 
initially thought she had a nasal tumor, but tests were negative.  On this 
visit it was clear she had deteriorated in a week and had the vet was able to 
see the tumor. The vet said steroids would shrink it, but it would come roaring 
back.  Her head was so swollen that one eye was shut.  The best thing we could 
do was let her go while she was still purring.

Thank you all and may you all have better success and hug your kitty tonight.  
Destiny was a peacemaker.  I never saw her hiss once, but I saw her sit as 
close as she could to our cats who hissed at her, until they finally were won 
over.  The world needs more people like my special cat . . .
