  • Mood:
We have an answer on the Complaint Department. The most likely diagnosis is small-cell lymphoma, and I am not putting a seventeen-year-old cat through a biopsy just to prove it.

So at this point what we're going to do is give her a whole bunch of prednisone and IV nutrients and make her comfortable at home for as long as it's not cruel to do so. Which could be overnight, and it could be a couple of months. We'll see.

I know she has a lot of friends and fans out there in the Internets, and I wish I had better news for you all, but at least she gets to sleep in her own bed tonight.

Thank you all so much for your support and good wishes the past week or so. It's been very much appreciated.

The good news is, the Giant Ridiculous Dog went for a walk today, and is doing much better.
