November 16th, we were told that our sweet Lilly has large cell lymphoma, and a malignant intestinal tumour.  We took her to the vet November 9th as she wasnt eating. They did testing, along with an ultrasound. This diagnosis was a shock to us.  Lilly is only 6yrs old.  She is the sweetest, most loving and kind cat.  She follows me everywhere I go.  Greets us when we come home.  Sits with us.  Always cuddles on my lap, with her paw around my neck and hugging me.  She is so affectionate.  She was a rescue kitty, and it almost seems like she is so grateful to be with us. She reads the paper with us on the weekends, loves to bask on the sunny windowsill, and just generally loves life.  I am beyond devastated.  I break down crying all day.  I am not sure how I will get through this.  We were told she didnt have much time left.  This came upon us all so fast, though they say cats can hide their pain.  After her diagnosis, she seemed ok.  She started eating really well again.  As of last night she won't eat again.  She gets her buprenorphine (pain meds) 2x a day now, but wont take her other meds.  She hasnt gotten out of bed at all today.  She won't eat, or drink any water.  It is just so sad, and not like her at all.  Tomorrow, we will see what we can do for her - but, I don't think there is anything left to do.  Today, is just one month after her 1st vet visit.  I am afraid to see what happens tomorrow.  This cat means the world to me.  I worried every day, about losing her, and unbelievably it's happening.  I don't know how I am going to cope with losing my Lilly, I really don't. She is my heart cat. My heart is broken.

Dear Lilly’s parent

I’m so sorry about her diagnosis. This is awful news especially for such a young kitty.

This is the hardest part of being a pet parent and I am sure you will do right by her. Make it all about her and treasure the moments you both share.

Thinking of all of you...

Hi Cindy, thanks for your reply.
Lilly lasted one month, to the day, from being diagnosed.  Yes, it was devastating news at her young age.  I cherished every minute I had with her.  I slept on the couch, so I could watch her all night. I smothered her with love every last day/minute she had.
Lilly passed peacefully, in my arms, in our home today - Dec. 8/18 at 4:02pm.
The vet was here.  Lilly got to enjoy over an hour of lying in a sunbeam, her most favourite thing to do, before her passing.  It was a most compassionate, peaceful, passing.  Lilly was blessed.
I will have a hard time adjusting to life without my heartcat, but, I know we will be together again one day.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I read your post with tears in my eyes, I just lost my 8 year old boy yesterday to cancer.  He was diagnosed on November 27th, and put to sleep yesterday.

I'm so very sorry for your loss too.  It's so hard.  I am having a very hard time still.  I hope you are ok.  I look forward to the day, when I can smile with all the happy memories.  I know that day will come. Please take care.
