I have had five cats that have had cancer. I had three females and two male cats that died because of cancer. A cat with cancer will start to lose weight. They will rest more than usual and not have their normal energy. Cats with cancer lose interest in their toys and become very lethargic.
Ear Cancer and Your Cat
Mt calico cat had ear cancer. The cancer looked like an animal had bit her ear to begin with. The growth began to look larger and then it began to bleed when she shook her head. I took her to my vet and he said the cancer would eventually spread to her brain. She got along fine for about six months and then the ear started to bleed profusely and I had her put to sleep.
Breast Cancer and Your Cat
I had a Siamese cat contract breast cancer at the age of 14. I treated her with medicine for some time that helped slow down the growth of the cancer. Eventually the medicine quit working and she had breast cancer on everyone of her breast. The cancer metastasized and she was losing weight rapidly. I had my vet put her to sleep. She lived to be 16 years old.
Lung Cancer and Your Cat
My cat Sebastian got lung cancer. He began to sleep more and had trouble going up and down the steps in my house. He was not able to groom himself like he used to. Sebastian lasted about 8 months with lung cancer. My vet put him to sleep. Sebastian lived to be 13 years old. He was a very loving and wonderful cat. The picture is a picture of Onyx. He was Sebastian’s Father.
Liver Cancer and Your Cat
My cat Philmoor contracted liver cancer. I found him in a Perkins parking lot and it was love at first sight. I knew I must catch him somehow. After one hour of offering him food and great determination I was able to catch him. He purred away in my friends lap all the way home. He looked out of the window of the car as I pulled up in my driveway and purred away very contentedly. I think he was trying to say he found his forever home. Philmoor was a very loving and friendly cat. At the age of ten Philmoor started to sleep in a recliner and he would not come when I called him. I took him to my vet and he told me he had liver cancer. My vet showed me how yellow the inside of his ears were. I took him back home and cared for him. He was getting worse quickly so I had him put to sleep. He was a beautiful and kind cream colored cat that I adored. My cat Bella also had liver cancer and I had her put to sleep. She was about ten years old.
Saying Goodbye To Your Feline Friend
It is hard to have a beloved pet put to sleep. You must think of your pets quality of life and think to yourself would I want to live under these conditions. I cannot stand to watch a pet suffer with a condition that is incurable. Do the right thing for your pet. It is very hard to lose a Dear family pet but you must think of all the wonderful times you have shared together and that your pet will not have any pain whatsoever in Heaven. Your cat can play with the other cats in heaven and be with family that has passed away.
God bless all of our pet friends today and always.
