As many of you know, Mittens was diagnosed with stomach cancer 1 1/2 years ago and given 2 months to live. At the time, I was told nothing could be done. Happily, she is still with us, sadly, I don't think she has long, but she has fooled us before. She stays in "her cupboard" (a lower cupboard in the kitchen with blankets in it) most of the time, only leaving to use the litter box or eat. She stil has a good appetitie and eats two cans of Fancy Feast a day. I did find blood in her stool yesterday. She was pretty sick for a while but snapped back. I won't let her suffer and I know she doesn't have much of a life, but it is her life and she tells me with her purrs and head butts she wants to stick around.
