I’ve scrubbed the complaining post that was here before, because the vet called back very promptly and gave me the bad news.
According to what we discussed Wednesday, there were two possibilities for Click’s condition: infectious meningitis, or a brain tumor. The vet got Click’s blood work back this morning, and she’s not infected with anything. So…
Click’s eight or nine years old, and I’d cheerfully go to as much trouble and expense as I can support to give her more years of life. But brain surgery is simply out of the question even if she’d thank me for it. She’s almost lost the use of her hind legs, and the trouble is clearly spreading to her front. At this rate she’ll soon be immobile. It hurts my heart to see such a smart cat, such a marvelous mouser, who adopted LB and used to bring him frickin’ rabbits for god’s sake, reduced to this.
I’m afraid it’s time.
