I just noticed this didn't cross-post, so I'm trying again.

Hamish was mad at me as he hid until this morning. Now I hope he's home sleeping and recovering. I gave him his antibiotic and pain medicine before leaving for work, so he should be good.

The size of the incision does not even roughly correspond with the size of the tumor removed. The tumor itself was approximately the size of the erase on a standard #2 pencil. The idea is to remove enough of the surrounding tissue (and skin only, no muscle) that the tumor does not recur.

And if you notice a shaved spot on his other leg, that's because the vet wanted to make sure that the wart there wasn't another tumor.

Awwwww, poor little guy! At least he didn't have to have his belly shaved. It takes forever for that fur to grow back.

Black cats are the best, aren't they?

How annoying! I hope he is feeling better by now, and will soon retain freedom and flexibility. Well, okay, only 11 more days to go. Poor bugger.
