My dear Kitty with mammary cancer passed last Saturday night in my arms. [View all]

Please remember this: A feline cat who has not been spayed by middle age is a target for mammary cancer. A shelter rescue often is only spayed when arriving at the shelter. Please remember that spaying is a health necessity for them.

Kitty had lived with five other cats before she came to me, and so the chances of her having litters is very high. I honestly think that gave her the loving and thoughtful attitude in life. Not spayed until she got to the shelter, though. And I didn't know about this phenomenon to watch for appearance of any tumor.

So. Her passing was extremely difficult for me -- and I know many of you will understand. But I really can't think of that right now.

If I can think of a way to post a photo here on DU, I will do so. She was really cute that day.
