Update On Jinx

We took Jinx into the Vet this morning. He cried all the way in and nearly all the way home.
I don't know why but somehow I think he still equates the 'car ride' to being abandoned . Because he
still has hunger issues relating to the time that they had been abandoned (Jinx can never get enough
food). He weighs 14 lbs. Which is what he weighed the last time, so I was pleased as I figured he had
gained some weight. The Vet said he is a BIG framed cat and that 14 pounds wasn't too much for him.
Since Jinx is 7 they did a senior blood panel on him (we will know those results tomorrow). The Vet
looked at his lump and said she wanted to aspirate it, and put it under the microscope. It came back
just like she thought. She said it is fatty tissue that has harden, it has some fancy medical name, which
I have forgotten. But the gist of it is that as long as it doesn't get any bigger we'll just leave it alone
as it is not harmful. Otherwise the only thing she could do is take it out, and I will do most anything to
avoid surgery, and I'm sure Mr.Jinx will be happy with that.

Boy he is so happy to be home!
Thanks for all of your purrs!


  1. Excellent!!! This is great news for Jinx!!

  2. That is fantastic news! We're so happy

  3. This is fabulous news! We're glad it's just fatty tissue and will hope there's never a need for surgery.

    My boys cry in the carrier. Nicki howls and Derry meowls, both piteously. It's embarrassing taking them (we go via taxi). Annie just huddles in fear.

    Anyway, we're glad Jinx is home again and out of the PTU!
