Lung Cancer and Your Cat

My cat Sebastian died from lung cancer.

He was always a playful kitten. He was born on my farm. Sebastian was an outdoor kitten to begin with. He would get under ones feet as a kitten. He was very smart about staying away from cars. The weather was getting colder and he would meow by my back door. I gave in and let him in my house and decided to have three house cats.

His first night in the house he gathered up all of the toy mice and placed them in a neat orderly row. I gave him a bath and he actually enjoyed having a bath.

He was quite healthy and would play with my other cats. He would walk along and balance on the most narrow part of the window. Sebastian was quite the athlete.

Sebastian started to get asthma or at least that’s what I thought it was. He was about eleven years old a the time. My vet gave him some shots which seemed to help. I noticed he seemed to be losing weight. I took him back to my vet. My vet took X – Rays and noticed a large mass on one of his lungs.

Sebastian ate OK  and was not in pain. As time went on his fur was more wiry and he would lay around more. One day he was resting on my steps and seemed to be in pain.

I called my vet and made an appointment to have Sebastian put to sleep. I had a burial box with me. I put some cat toys in the box and a towel to cover him .  Sebastian lived yo be thirteen years old.

I took him home and buried him. it was a very sad day for me. I was heart broken for sometime.

One must always remember to do what is best for your pet. I do not want to see any beloved pet suffer in pain. You will miss your pet terribly but remember he is no longer in pain. Remember all of the fun times you had together.
