I'm new here and have received sad news about my 14 year old cat Starr this morning. As suspected she has cancer (a tumour near her heart). There were no signs until very recently when she started acting like an elderly lady. Numerous visits to the vet finally confirmed things this morning and we're now facing palliative care along with the use of steroids. I'm just devastated, I've known my two cats (Ringo and Starr) longer than my husband! They've been through so much with me. The thought of facing the inevitable is just so upsetting. I just needed to share this.
