Mortimer in Stitches

POST #    2485

Thankfully, our worst fears for Mortimer were not realized. There was a fear of cancer, but the doctors opened up little Mort, and did biopsies on his intestines and lymph nodes which came back negative. While it was a costly way to rule cancer out, it was obviously the right decision.

The stitches above were removed last night and our vet says that they are healing perfectly. The only problem is that, because of his weight loss and mostly shaved belly, he looks even skinnier than he did before. But, we're hopeful that his hair and weight will come back.

Poor Mort, thank God he's okay!

I have been following Mortimer health issues with great interest since my 15 year old cat is also experiencing weight loss, though not as rapid as Mort.

I am glad he does not have cancer, but what does the vet attribute his weight loss to?? My cat will possibly undergo biopsy in a couple of weeks if the weight loss continues.
