Breast Cancer Awareness – It’s not just for people

on October 12, 2015
My sweet Rosie.

My sweet Rosie.

This is my sweet girl Rosie. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2013 because she had a very aggressive cancer on her belly near her shoulder. In addition to that, she also had surgery to remove a few mammary tumors. Yes, breast cancer can – and does – affect cats.

Connie at Tails from the Foster Kittens wrote a very informative, helpful blog about breast cancer in cats. It’s more common than you think. Please give it a read. Cancer of any kind is awful but early detection can help.

    I’m so glad you posted this and shared Connie’s informative post. You know from experience that cats can get mammary cancer. It is good to see Rosie again–I hope you will share pix of her from time to time.
