I'm sorry to hear that your cat in fact does have cancer, but am glad to hear that it is one of the more treatable forms. As Palady said, remarkable things can happen. These guys fight like nothing else & can defy the odds. I saw my horse through five years of severe respiratory problems after the vet told us that he didn't have much of a chance. But the two of us fought it with everything we had & he never ceased to amaze me. In fact, during those five years, only a handful of times was he in such a bad state that we didn't think that he'd make it through the night & every single time the attacks came, was when I was away: on vacation, away at school, or disabled from surgery. And I was so connected to him that I knew every time he was really sick before I even got the phone call, even if I was thousands of miles away! In fact, when he died just over a year & a half ago, it was not his lungs that killed him, but rather something entirely new (yet largely treatable). Personally, I know that he could have fought that as well, and had months, if not years longer, but I didn't have a say in the matter that time & that will always kill me... When you are so connected to an animal, you will know both their physical & emotional state, and they will tell you when enough is enough. So just take it one day at a time & together, you can fight it! I wish you both nothing but the best!
