Caturday Saturday

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

I used Fotor, blue effect on Noel’s photo because the results of Noel’s ultrasound have left me blue.

The internist that did the ultrasound thinks it is a mammary tumor. The ultrasound showed that there is cancer in some lymph nodes and her intestines. There is nothing I can do, but spoil her and keep her comfortable. I will know when it is time. For now she is eating and playing so I will take it day by day.  I will not let her suffer. Thank you for all the purrs and prayers.

PS: I asked about steroids, but the vet feels she will be at risk of infection and it would not benefit her.


  1. My heart is breaking. Sweet Noel I’m so sorry but I know she will be so loved with what time she has left. She looks so much like my Sassy.

  2. So very sorry to hear about Noel’s diagnosis – I think you thought it would be a tough one. I know you will keep her comfortable and with all your knowledge and experience with kitties will know when she is ready. We send lots of prayers and strength……The photo is sweet.

    Love, Pam and Teddy too

  3. Oh Ellen, I am so sorry. Never any doubt that she will be spoiled and that you will do the right thing for her. I am so happy she is with you. I will of course keep Noel and you in my prayers and you both will be in my thoughts. ♥

  4. Oh, we are so sorry to hear this news about sweet Noel. Lots of comforting purrs and hugs coming your way. We know you will do the right thing for her when it’s time. Enjoy your time with her.

  5. We are sorry to hear about your precious Noel. It’s always so hard when there’s nothing you can do. I know she will experience nothing but love and contentment in her final days. Sending hugs, love, and prayers.

  6. Noel is beautiful as is the art. We are so sorry to hear this news. If only the cancer had not spread. Mammary tumor removal is pretty straight forward.

    Purrs and pawpats to you both.

  9. We are so sorry and are sending purrayers and POTP to Noel and all of you. We know you will make Noel as comfortable and happy as you can, and you and Noel will both know when it is time.

  10. Oh Ellen, what upending news! Nature can be so ungracious to the elderly, including cats. There are so many varieties of cancer, and each one brings its own devastating news. I wil pray for your strength and Noel’s. Please keep us posted. I went through this with Coolidge when his diabetes and his urinary tract infection took him down. I treated him for nine years and be lived to be 17!

    Take care, friend! I pray you have or will find a knowledgeable veterinarian who might research this.
