Two years ago it was damage to her inner ear and a dislodged lens due to a fall. She recovered from that though she lost nearly all the sight in her eye. This time her jaw is badly swollen. It is either an abscess due to an infected tooth or a tumor. The vet reckons it is a 50/50 chance either way. I am waiting for a phonecall with the results of her bloodwork to see if she is able to go under an anesthetic to determine what is wrong. She is now 14 years 8 months and 15 days old. She has lost a little weight. She now weighs 2.92 kilos whereas she weighed 3.2 kilos last time she went to the vet. My two boy cats both weigh more than 6 kilos but Miss Chicken bosses them around.
