Thanks, Glitter. I remember you posting when yours died, and I'm glad you're coping ok.
I don't know what kind of tumor it was, but it was obviously swelling up her jaw, and she couldn't eat, and she was miserable, and she was at least 17 years old. So we had her put to sleep last Tuesday -- -- and buried her in the backyard of my mom's house, in a flowerbed, slightly above our other cat who died last fall. Which is what she'd have liked, as she was rather snooty -- she'd like being above him. I'll miss her loads when I next go to mom's and she's not there, but she had a good long life, and if there's a cat heaven I know she's there, happily being snooty to the other cats.
