Casper, my beloved Siamese cat, developed what appeared to be Allergic Rhinitis in September 2007. He was treated by the Vet and initially the condition cleared up. But, after about a fortnight, the problem returned. The Vet treated him once again and, like myself, hoped the condition would clear up. The treatment was continued for about 3 months, but to no avail.
It was clear that something was not right and the Vet decided to carry out various tests, including a Rhinoscopy. The diagnosis was that Casper had got a Cancerous Nasal Tumour. The Vet suggested an operation to remove it and assured me that the prognosis was good.
Casper recovered well , but started to deteriorate a month later. My worst fear was, that he had a Brain Tumour, because of the way he was behaving. Sure enough, a Brain Tumour was diagnosed by the Vet, leaving me with no choice but to opt for euthanasia.
As devastating as it was I stayed with Casper to the very end. The drip was quickly set up and the procedure was carried out. I spoke softly to him and gently stroked his little brow until he sighed his last breath...
And that was it, he had gone... to Rainbow Bridge!
