      Well went to the vet today for Sim's full check up. She was going to repeat
      everything since it has been almost a year since he was diagnosised with
      RCM. She noticed his stomach was large which I commented on last month at my
      normal check up and they just said he was getting fat. Well he had only gained
      3 oz in about 5 weeks, but he has had some increased congestion. So she
      tapped his stomach and pulled out a ton of chyle. Has anyone ever heard of this
      in cardiac cats. She said she was very worried that it was cancer or a
      lymph node ruptured. She didn't go over much for treatment because she said he
      was difficult with the severity of his heart condition. She isn't a
      specialist just a general vet so she was having it sent to the labs and calling the
      specialist. I just wanted to check with the experts here on anything else and
      if it could be related to his heart or has anyone experienced this.
