so

the results from the needle test came back and were...inconclusive. the working assumption has been lymphoma after his radiology and ultrasound, which would be untreatable. There's definitely no foreign object in there but it's such an inflamed mess they can't tell if there's a tumor or his shits just super fucked up. but, from what i understand the needle pull didn't have any conclusive cancer cells. it's possible that his intestines are just a total mess and super inflamed. he also doesn't have any infection.

since we already decided against chemo and that we were going to do steroid treatment until it's time, we opted to forgo surgery and see how things go with him at home, and switch his care to a local vet which might be, like, slightly more affordable (we've charged over $6,000 on his ICU care already. NYC vets are insanely expensive already, 24 hr hospitals, boy, I'll tell you...). they've got him eating again, and I'm sure he'll be more inclined to eat more when he isn't somewhere he's terrified. The vet working with him seems pretty supportive of both options, so I don't really see the point of running up several thousand more in vet fees to confirm something bad is going to happen when it's going to happen anyway if that's the case. She made me feel pretty good about my decision, and he does have a history of GI problems, so there's a small sliver of optimism for us.

picking him up and bringing him home after work.

oh, and for him, vets are cops, so he definitely fucked some up.

he started vomitting 30 August. that went on for a week, he had a day or two where he ate and held it down, and then went about a week where he'd only eat treats. the reason we brought him in in the first place was we were worried about him getting fatty liver since he's obese, but outside of the mass(?)/bad fluid he actually checked out really healthy for everything else.

my prior cat had major stomach issues and eventually stopped eating completely...until my vet suggested i try giving him gerber's chicken baby food. that and a topical steroid (prednisone i believe) helped him fight/made him happy for another half a year at least.

good luck with everything!

yeah we have him on a pretty specialized grain free diet already because of his past of having bad poops

the vomiting was pretty certainly from either lymphoma blockage or the inflamed intestines

It's my girlfriend's daughter idea. There was a Polish king named Stefan Batory, a relative of Elisabeth. I told her about it and read her a juicy chapter of a corresponding wiki entry. Now we occasionally call him Stefan.

yep

that steroid is the plan if he doesn't start to recover and we have to assume it's lymphoma

Agreed, great photo. But Mascotte will you please not introduce any more cats to your environment in which they are prey?

That situation was an exception, once we move in we will keep the cats inside most of the time.

Mascotte, you posted how you were introducing your domestic cats to the wilderness and you nonchalantly mentioned how they may become prey within your forest life. Please do not pretend that it isn't because you introduced your house cat to the forest that she died and please don't bring any more kittens. I respect and support your human goals with this wilderness living,
But I fucking love cats.

I love them too. I just need to accept that changing my habitat from urban to wild brings certain advantages and disadvantages for cats too and I'm not nonchalant at all. They're not closed in a tight flat anymore and felt super happy, all the stress and tension between the two animals was gone, they had an infinite space for exploration. Keeping them in the city was not a good decision, they have been fighting with each other and we shouldn't introduce he second cat in a first place. Here, living in a temporary space, in tents and no doors nor windows it was nearly impossible to keep an eye on them and they immediately accepted new conditions rarely returning home at night. I consulted several people since we lost Kicia and now I'm sure that we will impose some restrictions regarding their time in and out.

I will post their goddamn beautiful mugs when I feel like I've been here long enough. My 7 year old cat has been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Disease which manifests in his tummy and we've been through a lot since April when he started puking and stopped eating. He had to have a feeding tube installed for like two months and has been on so so much medication since but I feel like he is finally coming back into himself again. Does anyone have any experience with mail order chemo drugs? I currently purchase 30 count of pet Leukaran from a place in Arizona for $70 a month.



wow didnt see this post before

why are you considering chemo if it's ibs? that seems to be the call with our cat right now, whether it's lymphoma or IBS, and i know at this point that w/o biopsy lymphoma can be confirmed in some cased, but not ruled out entirely. which is where we are right now.
