Cleo Cat Tra Serval Has Football Size Mass Removed

 

Thanks to her Keeper’s keen observations, and our intranet site where an observation is charted and automatically emailed to vet staff immediately, Cleo Cat Tra Serval was rushed in for emergency surgery today.

 

It looked like she had swallowed a football and, 4 hours of surgery later, a football size mass had been successfully removed by Dr. Wynn.

 

Warning, some of the photos below are not for the faint of heart.

Sorry about some of the pictures being upside down and sideways.  We are working on that.

    That mass looks like it has an eyeball in it; could it be that Cleo was impregnated by an alien? Sorry, I know.. no joking matter, but I really saw would looked like an eye-ball in that mass. Ewwww. She's such a tiny girl to have been holding this huge growth within her; bet she'll feel so much better once the healing pains are subdued.
