She sure is getting fat. I wonder how many she will have this time. Damn hussie!
Why is this bittersweet? This will be our last batch of the little twerps. Not because we don't want anymore. Not because we are going to get her fixed. Not because we are going to get Bandit fixed. Nope, none of those reasons.
This is bittersweet because Bandit has Cancer. Lymphoma to be exact. His lymph nodes in his neck and groin are all swollen. Which means that it is throughout his body. He is probably in the advanced stages. The vet said that we could do radiation, but that would just prolong the inevitable and cost thousands. We can put him on steroids to ease some of his pain and help him eat better. He has dropped down to 79 pounds. He was up around 100 pounds. He limps around and doesn't have the energy that he used to. And his hair is starting to fall out. The girls are heartsick. We are heartsick. Flyboy thinks he only has a couple months left in him. If that. He is only 7 years old. Sugar Booger and Punky Poo don't remember life without him. Neither does Tabyana. It's very hard watching him go downhill.
