my sweet kitty

Thread Starter 
Kitty is at the vet's office (yet again) for her mouth. I found a lump in her lip last night and took her in to have it looked at. She has an abcess on one of her back teeth and will be having a surgical extraction today. I feel really bad because she probably had it for a while but was hiding it well. I'm pretty confident that she will come through this ok, despite her age. I everyone can send some good thoughts her way today as she goes under anesthesia

I know that feeling. Spot's been under anesthesia three times in the past year and a half, and it's always nerve-wracking waiting to hear that they came out of the procedure. Best thoughts to you and Kitty.

Just talked to the vet... she came through ok . They removed 2 teeth and biopsied a tumor in the back of her mouth (this was the cause of the swelling). She should be home tonight, thankfully!!!
Has anyone ever heard of tumors in cat's mouth's? Now I'm a little curious as to what that must be.
Thanks everyone for all your moral and emotional support... I have to say that I am completely drained and will be napping now!!

I'm glad Kitty came through the surgery OK. I know you'll be glad to get her home. Relax and rest, now. The waiting is very stressful.

Hope she'll be home very soon feeling fine.

My silly kitty is up to no good already!! She's been tearing around the house and her tail has been twitching!!
Our good news for yesterday was that all of her bloodwork was good.. including kidneys and liver (hospitalized in oct for fatty liver disease). I'm begining to wonder why I worry so much when she surprises us every single time with such a quick recovery!
I just have to say thanks to everyone for all your kind thoughts, it really means a lot to me.

We got the news on the tumor yesterday afternoon, it is squamous cell carcinoma. I have read a little about it online and it doesn't sound good. I think maybe I'm in a bit of shock considering that this is my childhood pet.
We will be making an appointment with an oncologist to see what can be done. Maybe it won't be so bad.
