Oscar, our eleven-year old cat, had quite a horrendous week.
Long story short, what we thought was a hematoma turned out to be a tumor, which got punctured and bled all over our house. I can't even explain the amount of blood we cleaned up.
Oscar had surgery to remove the tumor and two blood transfusions to try to bring up his Packed Cell Volume (PCV) which was at 14% and should be at 40%. The transfusions were not successful in doing this, but he is at home recuperating and we will be finding out more on what is making our big guy sick.
Here he is, resting in his favorite chair, with his newest (and loathed) accessory - the dreaded cone.
