Got some very sad news today, John took our Sophie to the vet to confirm what we already suspected, she has VAS, a rare and aggressive form of cancerous tumor. Removal would not likely be successful. Sophie is a shelter rescue kitty we estimate to be 8-10 years old, and the sweetest little kitty God ever made. She is in no pain at the present time, the vet roughly estimates her survival at six months to two years. When she reaches a point where she is suffering we will send her gently across the rainbow bridge, but between now and then there will be many, many tears.
