This morning, I am taking Spunky to the vet to have his first chemotherapy treatment. The cancer that caused his eye to be removed 2 years ago has returned. Surgery isn't an option, and radiation treatments would have to take place in Ohio. He would be gone for three weeks, and we can't put him through the separation and stress. Spunky was one of my Mom's cats, and he is a lovebug lap kitty. Slow and steady may win the race . . . . . but, unfortunately, we can't win this one. I'm praying the chemo treatments slow down the cancer so he can be with us longer.
