My beautiful tuxedo cat Andy will be 18-years-old this November. I found him in 2000, while on assignment for the Standard-Freeholder newspaper. About three years ago, a small bump appeared on his eye lid. My mom and I, thought it was a bug bite but it grew into a small tumor. Although, it didn’t seem to cause him any harm, in the summer of 2014 it was determined the bump was a mast cell tumor, if not removed, his next flare up could grow twice the size or larger taking over his face and causing much discomfort. We were very lucky to find Dr. Rob from the Charlevoix Veterinary Hospital who helped Andy. Today he has a much better quality of life, thank you Dr. Rob.
