Ode to a lumpy cat

We noticed last week that it looked like the lump on Scooter's jaw had come back. He went into the vet yesterday and yes, it was back and had spread around part of his jaw. Our vet was not entirely comfortable with surgery on it so he recommended going down to Colorado to see a specialist. So, E will be calling the veterinary teaching hospital at CSU today and see when we can get Scooter in. He is still doing well, being his usual ornery self, which is a good sign, but I'm worried to death about this. I'm really worried that I did something to cause it like by accidentally clunking him in the chin a few months ago or by him taking so many antibiotics for his upper respiratory infections.

On the upside Scooter has acquired a new nickname, we're calling him Mr. Lumpy now.
