    Poor Ryder!! That’s so scary. I hope he recovers emotionally very soon.

    Our neighbor across the street has 2 indoor/outdoor cats. One of them, Zeke, is 15 and clearly has some medical issues. He doesn’t hear well which makes me nervous because he crosses the street. He’s super sweet and just wants to cuddle and get love. His owner just got divorced and has twins around 3 so she doesn’t have much time for him (she has said this herself when she saw Ryan and I petting him one day). I feel so bad for this cat and I really want to steal him and keep him indoors but I know that’s fucked up. I do wish she would rehome him though because even she said she doesn’t have time for him. I would offer to adopt him but I know his medical needs will be money that we just don’t have right now. He’s so cute though!

    Sad pet news, My favorite doggo, my sister's presa canario, Bru, has stomach cancer. :cry: He's having trouble keeping down what he eats and it's not looking good. He's such a gentle giant and I just love him so much, my poor buddy. We're going home in late November for a bit so hopefully we get to see him then.

    I'm sorry @Imabug1002, that sucks.

    Eva is sick. She had an emergency splenectomy Wednesday night and is still at the hospital. Thank Jeff Goldblum, she made it through and is doing ok - we all went to visit her yesterday. But now we have to see what was growing on it (and a little one on her liver) to know if she has a few months or maybe a couple years. Old girl is already almost 12, but when presented with euthanasia or an obscene amount of money for surgery and care I couldn't just let her go. So spare a thought for my sweet old girl.

    We got her home last night, but she still doesn’t want to eat. We’ve gotten little bits in her but not enough. I’m cooking chicken and rice right now, vet said call back if she won’t eat it.
    Poor old sweet girl.

    It's not looking good for my sweet girl. The shit on her spleen was cancer, the kind that will come back soon and worse and even chemo won't keep her with us. :cry:

    Taking her to the vet tomorrow to figure out what that will look like, but super not looking forward to telling the kids. C2 won't get it at all. He's been running around yelling "Eva!" for a few days, he loves finding her and petting her.
