Stu, the wet food fiend

Stu had an ultrasound today which showed that his spleen, and thankfully only his spleen, is rife with little growths or tumors. We are awaiting the results of a biopsy on the spleen to see just what these growths are.

Meanwhile, his belly has been shaved. And he is still a little dopey from the sedative they gave him for biopsy. And he's stalking us, begging for wet food. I'm afraid he's going to attack us.

We'll know tomorrow what the biopsy shows, but the bottom line is that we want his spleen to be taken out. Cats apparently do very well with abdominal surgery and can live without their spleens.
