I'm happy to announce that Kitty had her tumor removed two weeks ago and is doing fine. She got her stitches out yesterday, and the doctor says she's healing nicely. Sadly, the tumor was malignant, so it could come back. At this point, there's not much we can do, other than keep an eye on the area. Here's a picture of Kitty with her cone. She got it taken off yesterday, so she doesn't have to wear it anymore. That thing fascinated me, but she wouldn't let me near it.
In fact, the other day Nathan was giving me a cookie (cat snack) and Kitty came right up and took it from under my nose! She's never done that before! Then she hissed and swatted at me! Fortunately, Nathan gave me another one, so everything was okay. Kitty is doing good!
