Destiny's Story

Ive mentioned a few times about Destiny having cancer... well we got her full story here, if anyone is interested in reading

destiny is a stray we took in. My fiance wanted to bring home his old cat from his moms house... well we went to speak it over with his mom, but she said no. so after our visit, this fluffy grey cat came walking round the corner. devins mom said shes been hanging around for 2 months and her neighbours were feeding her. devins mom and her neighbours had been looking for her owners... no luck. well we went and called her over to us and she went straight to my fiance. so we took her home. she instantly wanted belly rubs and cuddles and just purred away!

we looked for her owners too for another month to no avail. so we kept her and named her Destiny. a month later she started getting rodent ulcers, which are harmless ulcers that eat away at the lips. theyre painless surprisingly despite how they look and theyre just a cosmetic problem. they go away with treatment and heal and theres no scarring from before, even if they eat the lip all the way up to the nose! strange things, but destiny gets them and the cause is unknown. then things got worse

she started developing this pea sized lump in one of her mammary glands. in 2 weeks that pea lump turned to the size of a grapefruit. and she had 4 more growing! when the vet seen it, he was shocked... he said it was definately breast cancer. we aked how old she was as we didnt know. he looked at her teeth and said she was no older than 2 years.... thats why he was shocked. its extremely rare for a cat that young to get breast cancer. its common over the age of 9... NOT 2 years old! i asked the prognosis, he said very good with a very rare chance of it coming back... only problem is... it was expensive... but we got it done they did a spay, mastectomy, and tumour removal. removed 5 tumours, the largest one was 2 inches in diameter, but it had merged with the one next to it so felt larger.

she has recovered very well! no sign of the cancer returning either!

warning some photos may be graphic.

the biggest tumour before surgery. it was also bruised




her rodent ulcers (vet said to treat with salt water wash when they flare up and its working)


after the surgery... she had a drainage tube in her so we could drain and clean the major surgery site with peroxide



then after 5 days she got the tube removed...


then she decided it was funny to start ripping out her stitches and eating them.... so she got the head cone!


yet she could still play lol


and then had all her stitches removed
