Good News!  Lakshmi's "growth" was not a tumor, but an abcessed tooth that needs to be removed.  The abcess had bulged through the bone on her face, and that was the "growth" I saw.  She gets so upset when the vets try to look into her mouth that they cannot unless she is anesthetized. This may be a primary cause of her current mouth pain.

I just hope she survives the dentistry.  She has a grade 3 heart murmur, and of course cancer and stomatitis.  


  1. Wonderful!

    Good luck to Lakshmi for her Operation!

  2. Yeah I like that a lot too. Lucky little cat.
