Pumpkin, one of my cats, hasn’t been eating lately, been lethargic. We
took him to the vet this morning, and learned that he may have cancer,
which is sad.
We don’t know anything yet, other than that he has a tumor and his
kidneys are enlarged – we'll know more when the test results come back.
Eventually we’ll have to make decisions.
Pumpkin and Snips (his sister, from the same litter) were born on a
farm in Stowe about 12 years ago, and were quite wild at first. When we took them home,
they hid from us and ran away. Then, we introduced Pumpkin to being

strangers, but are very affectionate with us, Pumpkin especially. He’s
a lap sitter, and likes to be in the same room as us.
