Well today, the biopsy results came back, and as you can tell by the title of this post, Queso has cancer... I have to find out more about it, but the vet said he's got less than a year untreated, and if there is treatment, there's not 100% chance it'd work.. i'm going to talk to the vet again to see what else I can find out.. This is really hard for me because my cat Blink died in 2009 from diabetes.  I tried everything to save her, but in the end, there was nothing the vet could do..

I've been purposely avoiding uploading pics of Queso's bloody nose (the reason I took him to the vet a couple days ago).  This is what he looks like when I come home from work, and usually when I wake up in the morning.   I wipe the bloody snot off and it seems fine until he sleeps again, then it drips out while he's sleeping..

Queso Visits the Vet

So, I took Queso to the vet today.  He's had this nasal issue for a while, runny nose, sneezing, blood in his snot.. but only from one nostril.  It seemed to come and go and only a little at first, and his demeanor and eating habits haven't changed any, so it wasn't worrying, so I was hoping it would just go away permanently, but it's not going away, so I took him in this morning.

The vet took a look and suggested some x-rays and stuff because of the blood and it being only on one side.  While he's there, he's getting some dental cleaning done too.  It was supposed to be done today, but the vet called and they had an emergency pet come in so they had to push everything else back. Long story short, Queso gets a free room for the night and gets looked after tomorrow.

I asked how he was doing, if he still seemed scared. The lady on the phone said he’s super friendly and ‘sooo cute’ and is happy chillin’ there and just likes to be loved. She may have mentioned he's hanging with some other cats.. I don't remember.. I hope he doesn’t forget me!

Here he is at the vet. He wasn't too happy at the time. He'd just had a thermometer in his butt.

Lap Cat

This pic is from a couple weeks ago, but Queso often sits on the couch next to me, sometimes with his head on my lap like so:

Sunny Nap

Queso loves napping in the sun.  Like all cats i've ever known, he moves as the sun does so that he's always in it..

Guest Cat

My friend's cat Cosmo, enjoying Queso's tank.  He actually seemed to like it, compared to Queso who's a punk about it..
