Just got a call from the vet! He said the surgery was tough but successful. Lower bowels was where the tumor was, he was able to get the intesting hooked back up, and he said that because it was lower in the GI tract, recovery and healing should be better. He thinks she could go home tomorrow.
I am so tired of crying.
OMG so GOOD news then? I am so glad it wasn't as bad as you thought. Still bad, but now maybe she will be able to spend the summer looking at birds?

I actually thought it might go well and figured the vet was just covering his a$s. Glad to hear things turned out well.

Should we have some bets on this total vet bill, including the visits to get her rechecked? I'm going to guess $1500. I told NIck I'm going to be charging him $100 for sex.
And charge extra for the bj's.

Glad to hear that Mia's prognosis is good.

Vet just called. MIa is open on the operating table right now (he was on speaker phone). Tumor isn't on her kidney, it's in/on her intestines and maybe her spleen. He said it'll be dicey as to whether he'll be able to remove the tumor, save her spleen, and reconnect the portions of the intestine that he has to cut in order to get the tumor. He added that it could be a long, difficult recovery.
I gave him permission to go for it.(What else am I supposed to do?)
This isn't looking good.
Me. I gave you the heart. We have seen you through way too many pet loses here. Hope she comes through. Give her a pet rub from us.

NO, but I have heard tales. The daughter of a friend lives there. Apparently squirrels are legitimate dinner food.

Eating squirrel brains, apparently a delicacy in southern Ohio/West Va/Kentucky area has been linked to human mad cow diseas, bovine spongiform something or other.

She made it through surgery. Good.See, Topix prayers work. Have they told you what to expect? Will she go back to being a normal cat?

I ate squirrel once. I was about four. My great-grandmother's sister-in-law/third cousin (that would be my (for real) Appalachian hillbilly Aunt Vonnie) made it. It didn't faze me at the time, and as I recall it didn't taste gross or anything, but there's no way I would even consider it now. Yuk.
