This afternoon Patrick took Ju Ju to the vet to get her eczema checked out - she had a little rash on her ears for a while and recently it has been getting worse.

Well, it is worse. Ju Ju has the beginnings of skin cancer. Tomorrow she has to have parts of her ears removed. I can't stop crying. I can't describe how guilty I feel, how I noticed she had a bit of a rash but presumed it was just mild eczema and left it for several weeks. The vet told Patsington that she has been caught in time but what if she isn't? I can't imagine life without Ju Ju.

Oh, poor JuJu! :( But the vet's prognosis is good! *crosses fingers*

Oh, love, I'm so sorry. You couldn't have known, you really couldn't. But she's being seen to now, and that's the important thing. I'm hoping hard that the vet is right, and that this will be in time. I'm thinking of you, and Patsington and Ju Ju. xxx

Oh, Anna. I'm so so sorry. But, as I understand it, skin cancer on the ears of white cats isn't uncommon, and it's treatable. She'll have funny looking ears, but she'll be okay. You two got her to the vet in time.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this! But as cangetmad said, this is quite common in white cats, and treatable. I am thinking of you all.

P.S. Mail went out to you this morning. I will keep my fingers crossed that it arrives at all soon!

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry. I will keep my fingers crossed for you all and hope she's better soon.

Oh no, the poor wee beast, and poor you and Patsington. It sounds like you did the right thing, if the vet thinks that you brought her in on time - a few weeks probably wouldn't make much difference. Wishing her a swift recovery!

Oh sweetheart! I'm so sorry. But please don't feel too guilty, I know it's really really awful but lots of white cats, alas, get skin cancer all too easily on their ears. Our neighbour had a white cat who had most of her ears removed, and she lived very very happily, albeit earlessly, for years and years afterwards. I'm sure it's in time and Ju-Ju will be fine. But poor poor you, and her. *hugs*. xxx

Poor kittykins. Poor you. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry. At least it's been caught early - we didn't find out my cat had AIDS until he was lying on the floor because it was too painful for him to move.

Oh, poor you, and poor Ju Ju. One of our cats (also white) had the same thing, and had part of his ear removed, but suffered no ill effects from the removal. I hope it all goes well for Ju Ju.

Best wishes to you and the fearsome beast.
I hope all goes well!

Oh, wow. That just sucks. But an earless Ju Ju is still a Ju Ju, right? Just more fierce-looking.
Oct. 16th, 2006 04:35 pm (UTC)
Oh no. *hugs* Poor you and Ju Ju. But it's good that the vet says it's been caught in time.
Oct. 16th, 2006 04:49 pm (UTC)
*hugs* to you and Patsington, and *reverential petting* to the mighty Ju Ju. She'll be OK since it was caught early. She'll just need lots (more) spoiling. She'll still be your bold bad Ju Ju.

*thinking of all three of you*
