kidney cancer treatments are tailored to help a patient deal with the different problems during and after treatment such as stress, pain, emotional instability etc.

He's 19 years old, which is several years beyond the 'average' life span
for a cat. All you can do is spoil him with his favorite food(S), and
make sure he's not in any pain. Let him eat tuna and sardines if he
likes it. It sure can't hurt him now.

Plan on euthanasia, before too long, and be thankful for the time he has
left.

Yes. Y9ur cat is very lucky. He's already 19, and has lived a full and very
good life. Also, he doesn'r worry about the future. Like Bobby Burns' mouse,
The present only touches thee, but och, I backward cast my eye on prospects
drear, and forward, though I canna see, I guess and fear.....

Its from his, "Ode to a Mouse".
.....the best laid plans of mice and men gang oft a gley,
and le's us naught but grief and pain for promisted joy.
But thou are blessed compared wi me (and etc.)

I don;t know the whole poem, and don't have my books any more, but you can
look it up on the internet....Burns was ploughing in his field when he
overturned a mouse nest, so he wrote the poem that night.....
