So scared for Dave

Post by Grace56 » Wed Sep 07, 2016 8:53 am

I have an appointment at the vets on Friday for Dave.
The spot on his nose is bigger and I'm terrified that it's squamous cell carcinoma. He is eating ok and still going out, but I know the thing needs attention.
I'm dreading Friday morning. :(

Just needed to tell others who would understand my fears.

we don't send messages like that on here, Grace 2012

most of us understand totally your fears, Grace56, and some of us have sadly shared them - can you bring the appointment forward at all? it probably won't make any difference to Dave, but it will give you a shorter time to fret in

All this persons posts have been anti cat, Kay. She has no business being on this forum.

Anyway, thanks for reply, Kay. I've calmed down now. I'll go Friday and let you know how we go.

Thank you.

My thoughts are with you Grace56, hopefully it will prove to be something treatable, but I can understand the fear.

And as far as other things go, I have to keep reminding myself 'Don't feed the troll'.

Thinking of you Grace56. Most of us have had this 'dread' for our cats, it's a normal reaction. I even get nervous going to my GP and I've known him for 30yrs! All fingers and toes crossed, which will make it a bit difficult to walk to the shops but I don't care, beloved Dave comes first and we are all sending good vibes his way.

Thank you, everyone. It does help to know others are thinking of Dave and me.
He's my baby and I love him as we all love our furry ones. :)

Love and best wishes for Dave from me and my cat crew too.

It's human nature to think the worst, I'm terrible for doing it. But it's only because we love the little monsters so much.

Try not to worry and give Dave a big fuss from me x

Just seen this thread and can only assume the post in question was offensive - my response to that :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Oooh Grace, poor Dave. I'm keeping everything crossed that it is nothing to worry about. As Kay suggests perhaps you can get in to see the vet sooner.

Thinking about you both

I obviously missed a post, but can only assume it was from an unhappy cat-hater with their own agenda. :roll:

Poor Dave, but nine times out of ten these thing are nothing to worry about, all paws here croosed for you and Dave on Friday. xxx

It's natural to worry, we all would, but stay strong. (((hugs)))

Awww! Thanks again everyone. I feel much better reading your messages.
Yes, Crewella and Bobbys Girl. The deleted posts were quite nasty and it was a cat hater.

Anyway, I'll let you all know how Dave goes on at vets.

((hugs)) all round from me and meow from Dave to you and your furry babes. ;)

Only just seen this thread. Hope Dave is OK on Friday, but know only to well why you are worried.
Also glad I did not see the deleted posts - they seem to have been pretty sick - just what you don't need in these circumstances

Hi Grace me,Snow Girl, TC & Harper sending you +vibes for you & Dave & I agree with all the other comments re: the offensive posts. Obviously needs to go get a life and in my humble opinion, people who act this way tend to be very weak people. (((Hugs))) Vivian & the 3 Muskateers.
