Hopefully, no cancer!
The vet seems to be a little lacking in people skills. But if he did his job well...he's forgiven. "Hate me if you want...but be good to my pet" is my motto!
Fortunately, our VET is the kindest, most compassionate person in the world.
SHE is totally into pets and the people that belong to them!
It sounds like your MAX has a wonderful mommy and daddy!
I sure wouldn't want to be the mommy that administers meds to a cat that's in recovery and feeling a bit cranky!
Keep us posted!
