Tina, our oldest cat, is no longer with us.

Unfortunately, after having some serious problems with her eating, we took her to the vet and they found a tumor that was in her head, which was affecting her jaw movement and even pushing her left eye out a little, causing it to bulge out slightly. The vet did not recommend surgery since it was in her head, and her chances of survival were pretty slim, and she would likely starve to death because she was unable to open her jaw. She couldn't eat hardly anything that couldn't be drank, and even then, it was barely anything. She had dropped down to 3 pounds and had stopped grooming herself.

So we had to let her go. The kids were under the impression that she's with the doctor, but that's about it. They tend to forget about things, so I don't reckon we would have to explain that to them.

I'll post a couple photos and videos later of her later.
