Good News

I had an exhausting morning at the V-E-T. I'm trying to take these weekly trips in stride, but really, it's no fun being poked and prodded. Today was worse than usual, because I got stabbed with a very sharp little needle all over my belly. Usually I just get one needle poke on my leg when they steal my bloods, but they were looking for something else this time too.

Dr. C called the extra pokes a "needle biopsy." He took cells from two areas in my belly where he would have expected to find more cancer or pre-cancer cells. He was very happy to report that he found none. He was happy with my blood work too.

So maybe all this is good news to Mom and Dad, but to Me it means that I still have to have pills shoved down my throat and continue the weekly trips to the V-E-T. They say I am halfway through this phase of chemotherapy, but I'll reserve judgment about it being good news until it's all over and I can get back to living my normal Cat life.

well the no cancerous cells is great news to me. I hope you continue to have very good v-e-t checkups and eventually they can slow up a bit (give you time to forget what the PTU is.)

Enjoy your very well deserved cat nap today.

Sounds like great news! You deserve extra treats for getting extra pokes at the vet.

I am so glad that the vet didn't find any more cancer, but sorry it took so many needle sticks to find that out. Hang in there, Rascal, things will get better in time.

You're looking good, Rascal. And that's wonderful news! It's no fun being a pin cushion, though, is it.

Rascal, I am sorry, but I THINK THAT IS GREAT NEWS!
I'm just sorry you weren't showered with tuna and catnip when you got home. Instead it looks as though you were forced to be someone's cool picnic lunch!
HaHaHaHaHa! no really, you are cute in that cooler!

Good for ewe, Rascal! We are purring so much hearing that you are doing better and that your biopsies are OK. We don't know what a "biopsy" is, but if the mews was good, that's all that matters. Maybe there will come a time when they won't poke-y ewe any more.
Maybe you should come to Airy Zona for vacation!

Many purrs for ewe and Catzee and your peepul,

Max, Shadow, Europa, Pixel & Ziggy the Hut (who's been very sick this week with tummy aches)
