A couple of weeks ago we noticed that Teddy had a lump under his ear. We decided to keep an eye on it. On Monday Pat and Linda emailed to say that the lump looked bloody, seemed Teddy had been scratching it.
So Anne and I with her husband Gary's help managed to catch Teddy on Wed with a drop trap and off he went to the vet.Thankfully it seems the mass is benign. The vet removed it and of course Teddy had an ear infection and bad teeth. Teddy is one of the most beloved cats at the colony so we had all that taken care of. He had to have two teeth pulled but after Teddy's overhaul hopefully he should be in great shape.
The vet thinks he is around 8 - 10 years old and he weighs almost 17 pounds! Teddy is recovering at Joanne's until next week, getting her yummy smorgasbord of food. That's three trappings in one week! Tonight I'm trying to get Morris, the last unfixed cat. Zero tolerance, that's my policy on spaying and neutering. So glad Teddy is OK, it feels so odd feeding right now without him, can't wait until the big guy is back in his spot.
