Well I just got the news yesterday but my 8 year old cat was diagnosed with intestinal lymphoma. It started with vomiting, no eating or drinking and weight loss and after an endoscopy and biopsy this was the prognosis. Now I'm presented with a difficult decision. The vet seems to think that chemo is the way to go but from what I've researched it will extend his life by maybe 12 to 18 months. He's been home with me since Friday afternoon and he's just not happy or acting like himself. Still not eating and being fed through a PEG tube. I love my cat to death but at the same time I don't want to see him suffer. I haven't made up my mind on the chemo as I really don't want to extend his life only for him to go through this suffering again. Has anyone had any experience with this?
