After 16yrs, 12yrs with us, sadly it is time to put out beloved cat, "Q-T" to rest.
Last summer my wife and I came back from our honeymoon and noticed his third lid on his right eye was half closed. The vet seemed to think it may have been a scar and irritating his eye to make the lid close.Turns out it was a tumor, and she removed it. Because of his age, he's 16, the vet didn't think it was worth testing to see if it was cancer, as putting him through chemo would be rough on him, and expensive for a cat his age.
Unfortunately the tumor was back within a month, and bigger than before. We brought him back to the vet and she said as long as he's acting normal and eating, just make him comfortable, there's really nothing they can do.
That broke our hearts, but that's what we did. Now he is not eating or acting like our "Q-T". We called the vet and she said it is likely time.[/SIZE]
We found a vet closer to us that does home euthanasia, and would like to do that for him.We want to do this this way because he HATES carriers. He flips out when he is in one and usually ends up hurting himself. We don't want to put him through any more trauma or suffering and feel this is the most humane way. This way he can be in his comfy spot, with us with him, and go peacefully.
The cost is more expensive and we cant really afford it. So we set up a "chip-in" page to raise the funds for this for him here:

If you can find it in your heart to give just a little, it would really help. thanks fellow hunters!
