Floris is going downhill fast by now. He is very thin, but that is not the worst news ; I saw him walking lopsided last week and now I have discovered why this is so- there appears to be a lump ( possibly a lymphnode metastasis) underneath his front paw . I can't move it from his ribs, so either he is in pain already or will be soon.
It will be time to think about saying goodbye to this lovely sweet and brave furkid of mine in a very foreseeable future. Well, I knew this was about to happen, of course, but that doesn't make it less hard. And the real problem, of course, is deciding when enough is enough- he still loves lying and sleeping in the sun, comes for his food and for his cuddles.
