All we can say is... hang in on there ! Hopefully he will be able to recover from this. If not, well, enjoy his company as long as you can in good comfort. We all have our time on this mortal rock, the only thing we can do really is try to enjoy it and each other's loving company.

Oh We are praying and purring for Smudgie. We hate to here this news. I would agree, we would want to know all options and possible scenarios. But love is the key. Poor Baby our eyes are leaking. Sending Lots of Love and Purrs and Hugs

Aw no, this sucks. I'd want to know what kinda and what can be done. When our Punkin was diagnosed we went with the aggresive treatment and got another 19 months before it came back. It was another 19 months for us to love her, when it came back the only option was pain management. We owe a lot to our oncology vet, he did a mighty job keeping her quality of life up. We'll say prayers for little Smudge...


We's purraying fur u's, Smudge. an purrs an purrayers fur tha whole fambly.

Gosh, everyone, thanks for stopping by and wishing Smudgie well. That's very thoughtful of all of you! I will definitely post updates about Smudgie. Thanks again. Our family very much appreciates your kinds thoughts.


Hi, we're very sorry to hear about Smudgie. It is so hard when we aren't sure of the answers. We'll be purrng and praying for Smudgie and all of you. Knowing that you love him so much means you'll make the right decisions for him.
Take care, we'll be thinking of you.

We heard from the Cat Blogosphere about Smudge's cancer. We're hoping for the best.

Sending healing purrss to Smudge from all of us.

Poor Smudgie we hope and purr for the best.

Not to be morbid but would removing the eye and closing the lid permanatly be an answer. Our last experience with eye problems was about 15 years ago with our cat Thomas and he had to have that done to his eye. The Vet said it was best. Of course that was so long ago but thought we'd offer it up.

All the best,
The Zoo

We are certainly sending purrs and prayers over for Smudge!


Megan, Thanks so much for sharing Smudgie's woes w/other cats and cat lovers in the blogosphere. We're received a crazy lot of support!

Zoo, that's a question we'll ask the oncologist when we meet w/her in a few days. We'll discuss his case and Smudgie will have a biopsy done. His eye isn't the main problem; it is, however, affected by the tumor behind his eye, the tumor being the main problem. We do wonder if it would be radical, yet best to take out the tumor and the eye. The two most likely cancer types are carcinoma and lymphoma. If I understand correctly: If it's the former and we proceed with treatment (as opposed to palliative care), surgically removing the tumor is the thing to do and the eye just has to come out, too. If it's the latter and we proceed w/treatment, chemo is the thing to do. I'll post more after we see the oncologist and Smudgie's biopsy is done.


Best wishes for a good outcome for Smudgie.


Oh no I'm so sorry about poor Smudgie. You're in my thoughts and prayers, you've got some hard questions to ask and decisions to make.
