So oddly my 12 year old cat has a tumor in his chest that is pinching off his esophagus preventing him from eating. Currently giving him two solid doses of prednisone which nan help shrink tumors but I guess his is too big and he ain’t doing well. I’m going to have to put him down soon. Now he is 12 my vet called him old but sooper dooper the cat is now 23 and still going. I find that odd. I went through a couple periods where they thought sooper was going to have to take the medical cat nap but she’s still going and now her buddy Baxter who’s only about half her age is going first. Sad stuff, Baxter has been a good buddy for over a decade. Gonna suck putting him down. I guess cats aren’t much different than humans we all have unique expiration dates that make us scratch our heads
