    I'm so sorry Jill. This was quite a shock to me, since I thought Buffy was still pretty young. I loved her buff coat, speckled nose, and sea green
    eyes.

    Thanks, Tak. I never knew how old Buffy was. Best guess is she was
    about 6 when her former slave died and I adopted her, so that would have
    made her around 12, which really isn't old. She was beautiful and I
    miss her very much.

    I was late getting the story, but it sounds like it may have been something like squamous cell carcinoma, which is what Betty succumbed to, even after months of treatment at an animal cancer center. I unfortunately haven't
    heard of any cat that's beaten it.

    Yes, that's what they suspected and I immediately thought of you and
    Betty. You're the only other person I've "known" who had a cat with
    this type of tumor in the mouth. (Buffy's was in her upper jaw; am I
    correct in remembering that Betty's was in the lower? I seem to recall
    Betty had surgery to remove part of her lower jaw.) At any rate, they
    are both at peace now.

    I didn't make that connection. I had my Betsy put down because of
    squamous cell cancer in the jaw back in 2006 when she was about 16. I
    took her to two different vets so I'd have a second opinion, but both
    vets agreed that there was nothing they could do to treat her. It's a
    vicious disease.

    Betty, Betsy, and Buffy somehow sound similar. They're probably playing together and swapping notes.

    It sure sounds like the same nasty virulent cancer in the jaw to me,
    Cheryl. It defintely spreads very quickly with so few initial symptoms
    that by the time it is detected and diagnosed not much can be done about
    it. :(

    I certainly hope so. :) And curled up together in the sunshine taking
