Sweet Stripes is an absolute darling 7 year old male cat who was recently surrendered to us from his original owner during the summer 2020 (for unrelated reasons). Stripes has been in an incredible foster home where he has been adored , and been on a diet (he's a large 20 pound cuddly teddy bear! ) . During his time in foster, his foster mom noticed lumps on his head that began to grow. She alerted us to lumps on his head, and we set her up with appointments to take him to City Vet in Manhattan where aspirates came back positive for Mast Cell Tumors (in the form of skin cancer ) . Initial Blood Work and chest x ray indicated it did not appear to have spread. We enlisted the talented oncology team at Guardian Veterinary Specialists in Brewster NY. They conducted a spleen aspirate and abdominal ultrasound to make absolutely sure it had not spread to those dangerous locations. On January 27th, Guardian removed his lumps on his head and had successful good margins around the mast cells. A sample was sent out for biopsy to ensure all the cells were removed. On January 28th Stripes was discharged to go back with his loving foster mom to recover who will make sure he heals well, while we await the hopeful positive news of his biospy and spleen aspirate.
