the vet felt it was possibly a really aggressive form of skin cancer, plus she found some abdominal masses as well. jess did not relax and go to sleep with the pre-med. she just sat in my arms and purred and head butted me instead. we waited for her to fall asleep, but she just didn't. still, not a flinch or any sign of fear, ever trusting, ever full of faith. she was a really good cat.
