|Price and Leo on the couch.|
Okay. Whew. Here's the latest:
Price is 16 years old. The lump in his belly is probably scar tissue from the operation (didn't find it before, because of the burn).
Only one of his legs is bad; the vet guesses an embolism, which isn't uncommon in cats his age. This help explains a bad situation about three years ago, when a cat lost use of both hind legs. Price is okay; he can walk. Nothing can be done about it, but he's happy and gets around.
He's eating, drinking, doing everything he's supposed to. The vet and we have decided no more cutting or desperate measures. From now on, it's goodies and time in front of the fire for the old man.
And thank those of you who had good thoughts for our old guy.
