I know how bad are they? i was so mad at them and I am going to be making a fuss about it as my vet said it was a terrible misdiagnosis. I mean originally I am told that cat has torn her pad off and the pad is still actually there. I get a bit squeamish with blood etc so when I noticed it bleeding I tried to have a look but got all squeamish and decided I'd better just get her to the vet as I didn't want her to get an infection. The blood was from the cancerous cells apparently and she said no vet should have misdiagnosed it so badly. Anyway puss is happily at home now, we'll find out what the go is in a few days. Thanks for your support.
