Caroline, I'm really sorry that Monkee had such a difficult time, I also believe we are all here for a given time and once it is our time to go, we go.
It is my understanding anytime there is a tumor on a limb, the limb should be amputated, this in almost all cases along with chemo and sometimes even without chemo will get completely rid of the cancer if it hasn't already spread. Some people feel a cat will not do well with a limb gone but all the people I have talked to that have had this experience say their cats adjusted very well and very quickly. Me personally if it means any of my furkids having three legs or being dead, they will be tree-legged, as I would be given the same choice. -- Belinda happiness is being owned by cats ... http://bemikitties.com http://BelindaSauro.com _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
