Poor Kitty

Well, the saga of the cat is coming to a close. My poor kitty was acting better this week and eating more and staying inside more. But tonight when I came home, Peter told me her anal area was inflamed. When I looked, it wasn't inflamed, but open to the bone. It looks like there is a tumor in there at the base of her tale. Or she had a small injury that became very infected and burst open. She is in a lot of pain (if you touch her tail), but still sweet and purring otherwise. She wasn't like this yesterday. I think this is the something I couldn't put my finger on. I don't' see how she can recover from this. I'm going to take her to the vet tomorrow. She's not an "old" cat, but she isn't a young cat either. She's at least 11, perhaps older. She's the best cat I have ever had. I will miss her. I just wish I knew what had caused it, though I don't think that would change the outcome. It would be nice if I found out it was fixable, but i just don't see how. I wish that I had seen it earlier to have ended her suffering already.  poor thing.
