      I second that opinion.
      Further, I would question the judgement and competency of any vet who would put a cat of this age through "exploratory surgery".
      Your kitty is in my prayers; Please keep us posted.
      PS: I have in the past used www.yelp.com to locate excellent vets. Pet owners on Yelp post reviews of the vets they see, and this can give a pretty good picture, if you are lookng for a vet. Hopefully Yelp is active wherever you are living. Otherwise, you may try Googling "veterinarian reviews" and see what comes up.
      I hope this helps.
      Linda :-)

      I'm assuming she had xrays?  I would have an ultrasound done - something to see if there
      are tumors;  Also assume that bloodwork has been done, checking lymphocytes, eosynophils,
      any other values that are out of whack?

      I would not put her through surgery until all the tests have been done with a cat her
      age.  If they do find something and it looks operable - that's one thing.  If they find
      nothing, or if it is too extensive to make operating any use - then make her comfortable
      until you have something more concrete, or it is her time...



      Pray for Peace.
