Oh, poor Miss Kitty! I hope she is feeling better and we are sending benign thoughts both your way! Those are huge margins though, so that is good in any case (though looks worse!) Martins turned out to be a skin tag, so hopefully Kitty's will turn out to be something equally lame (thankfully!)!

Oh so we're on the same boat, both waiting for the test results to come back :) Let's hope everything turns out ok! And yeah, they make a huge wound compared to the tiny bump, they really cut it all out. I thought it won't be a big deal, a couple of stitches and that's it. Now, half of Brina's leg is stitched up! How is Kitty feeling today?

She's acting as if nothing happened too! When I got home last night she was tearing all over the yard with a ball, jumping, running. Basically doing everything she shouldn't be. :)

so... Kitty has mast cell cancer. He said it's grade II, and that it was completely removed with a margin of .3 cm At this point, she's ok... just need to watch for re-occuring tumor or any new bumps.

Oh no, i was hoping it's nothing serious :sad: I found good info on mast cell tumors on this site:

Let's hope the surgery took care of it and it won't return!

Damn on the mast cell. I'm so pleased they at least got clean margins. Hoping for no more to come back!!!
