Our Emmie has a lump on her stomach that I discovered about four days ago. It seems to be getting bigger or perhaps I am just over worried. We are going to take her to the vet hopefully tomorrow. I would love to get her seen as soon as possible and luck would have it that the kids are out of school for the village festival Monday. So, I am hoping and praying that we get her in on Monday.
She isn’t in pain even if I touch the lump and she is eating normally. The only difference I have noticed is that she is sleeping near us more (usually she hides) and sleeping longer than usual.
We have had Emmie for almost a year now and she is such a big part of our lives. I can’t imagine not being greeted every morning with her hungry meows or each night with her purrs as she sits with me after the kids are in bed.
She is an awesome cat that plays fetch with hairbands (her toy of preference), runs as fast as she can to the children if they are hurt to see if they are OK, sprints to the childrens bedroom doors in the morning as soon as she hears a door crack to tell them goodmorning, rubs her head against my face with as much love as a cat can show and in every way is a gentle and beautiful member of our family.
We love her.
I don’t think my children could stand to lose her.
I know that I can’t.
Simply put – “She is our girl.” (From the mouth of my four year old son)
