I have an aged cat, adopted as an adult. She’s likely 16-17 years old. She has cancer of her sweat glands. After getting a big skin tumor removed and a lymph node and consulting with a veterinary oncologist, I’ve decided that I didn’t want to put her through additional treatment.
For the moment, I think she’s a relatively happy cat. She eats food and drinks water. She’s pretty much “on target” with the litter box. She grooms herself.
However, she’s very quiet. She didn’t mew much, but not she’s pretty much silent. She seems to move around OK, but she doesn’t ever seem to be in a hurry. She really just spends all of her time in two places. Either in the kitchen (where the food is and her pillow) and in the living room where she has a small area she hangs around.
Is there any particular warning sign I shouldn’t notice when it looks like she’s really uncomfortable and I need to take action?
