Pittens 1 year anniversay and thank you community here.

Thank you my friends for patience, holding my chaotic mind with patience, and being kind.  Pittens is still going strong 1 year after surgery. I somehow dont get notifications anymore, and came and saw Pittens page with so many check ins I never saw! I more came to let everyone here know how we are and how indetebted I am to all of you. You walked me through back and forths and then the fears through every step. And Pittens is still here at 19 now. Thank you for being family in a way Ive never known. Immense Love to you all. Pittens and Sumi 


Hi Everyone,


I need help. I called the helpline and met the most beautiful person who helped me calm my heart and panic. My cat is 18 years olf. She was diagnosed with soft sarcoma on her front paw . The rec has been full leg amputation or let her live life out till the decision comes. She is fully alive and alert. She cuddles with me and loves to be outside and loves food

She is showing signs of early kidney disease and is hyperthyroid I currently give her methimozole and gabapentin. She has tremendous anxiety around others.

I feel split on this decision. I wonder how she will recover and make it. And will her final time be in adjustment? Is it more ethical to have her feel full in body and not adjust? Right now, time is running out. Her paw has swollen the size of a golf ball and has an access that is about to rupture. I am also moving this Sunday and I am totally freakign out I know when I move I will be able to have her in her own room if I got for surgery, which I do not have now.

My vert moved and during cover I have been to several vets and surgeons

What is everyones experience?
