We thought we were going to have to say our goodbyes to our tiny black cat today. Jelly had a large mass in her lower jaw a few weeks back.. and today was the day for sedated x-rays since she’s not too friendly. .
The vet was nearly certain it would be a cancerous tumor, which we wouldn’t be able to treat due to not being able to handle her when she is awake. .
However, it ended up being an abscessed tooth, which was subsequently removed. Jelly is back home and on some pain meds for the next 5 days (if she’ll let us give them to her). .
She doesn’t like people, pictures, being touched, being held... and, sometimes, she’s a really frustrating cat... but she’s *our* frustrating, petite, 15-year-old, Hurricane Katrina rescue cat that’s gonna keep on trucking and end up being the world’s oldest cat, I’m sure. 🤷🏼♀️😻
