I spoke to the lovely Dr Eaglesome today about the senior cats. The good news is that Caesar is in great shape for his age, and doesn't really have any health problems.
The bad news is Snowball. He is very diabetic but that is most likely being caused by a large liver or pancreatic tumour in his abdomen. She is amazed that he is doing as well as he is, in good spirits and eating well. It's a large tumour that is pressing his colon against his spine and very sadly he probably only has weeks or months to live.
So now I desperately need someone to take these two in, ideally together. Caesar could have a few more years, he just needs some TLC and Snowball deserves to spend his final days in a loving home.
There must be somebody out there, I just need to find them, and fast.
Sometimes this is so hard.
Thank you to all who have donated to their vet care. It's so reassuring knowing I'm not alone in caring about cats and their welfare.
