Five Month Mark

Yesterday marked five months since Leo's diagnosis...

Not much change since the last post -- he's not eating great, he's drooly and smelly. Occasionaly his mouth bleeds, but it doesn't seem to be causing him any pain.

Yesterday I found myself wondering if his quality of life remains. Conclusion: there is still enough there to continue on. Because he wants to eat and dives into each meal -- gives it his best shot although he never manages to eat it all. He enjoys the combing out of his matted fur and still purrs when his chin is scratched.

Pictures to follow in a day or two (and hopefully no bad news between now and then.)
