elly says: Floris was a beloved and loving kitty. He came to me many moons ago, since his then human person appeared to be allergic for him. She loved him , too, though, and they came in regularly to see him. Unfortunately when he was 13 years old, he developed a vaccination sarcoma, a highly malignant tumor. He was treated at the university and we were able to keep him really happy for 20 months after diagnosis, which was pretty good. Finally I had to let him go, though. He had a good life and although I and the other cats still miss him, I think we are richer by having him in our family. The first pics, of him as a kitten, were digitalized from old photos.

This is so delightful a shot of cat harmony! Floris was an exceptionally good-looking orange boy. I am so sorry that the vaccination sarcoma did him in. It is hard to do the right thing by our cats--vets say one thing, but we have to use our own judgment here. I think the rabies vaccination is the most dangerous to cats--what to do?

He was a beautiful cat, I am sorry for your loss. He still had a very loving, and relatively long life, who knows without the vaccination how long he would have lived. I agree with Natthecat, it is such a dilemma, vaccinate or not, where you take the risk.

Elly, I know Floris had a loving home with wonderful people, and that you took the best care possible of that precious furkid. He was certainly beautiful. I love the photo of Floris in your mini shop - don't they just love to get into our miniatures?

Hi Elly, I lost my cat, Cheeky, to the same thing - "vaccination sarcoma". She also liked to sleep in the sink. I just wish I had more photos of her.
