Poor Old Mouse...

Curly is a bit chubby. This managed to hide something...



The lump seemed to just appear out of nowhere. The mass is very solid. Curly does not appear to be in any distress. But I have noticed she slowing down that she is napping more often.



In this post on April 25 you can see a hint of the tumor.
In this post on April 8 nothing appears to be out of the ordinary.

Curly is very sociable and will greet me, especially when she wants treats. She nibbles on the pads on my fingers when I am holding her and seems content to wander from hand to hand and then settle down.

Curly's Auntie Bell had a tumor like this between her jaw and shoulder. Bell was very active and happy to the end and I hope this will also be true for Curly.

I'm so sorry to hear about Curly. You might be able to get that tumor removed if you take her to the vet, and even if you can't they can give her steroids to make the rest of her time a little less painful. Good luck!

You are really getting hit from all sides. I understand. We currently have three very sick animals at home. It can be very stressful. Do take care of yourself.

Thank you, Katy, for bringing steroids up, never thought of that, but that could be a kind thing to do for the old girl...
