Leon is still among the Living.

And Herman is floating in a jar.

Everything was rather uneventful.  Worse case scenario is that Herman is a fibrosarcoma.  They are malignant, and have a very high recurrence rate.   From what we can see, it does look like all of it was removed.   I might send Herman to the pathologist. I might not.

Leon is still rather groggy from anesthesia. I am a little surprised by that, but that is fine if he sleeps a little longer than some.  He does have some pain medication on board.

Here's Herman.

Leon has been teased about his husky self all his life.  And spent a lot of the time snacking on diet cat food.  In this case, that might have been a good thing as the tumor is surrounded by fat, rather than muscle tisse.   Plus, that means extra skin to pull closed over what was removed.

Check out what a "Cool" scar this is going to be . . . .  All the other kitties on the playground are going to be jealous.

We'll see what happens over the next few days, weeks and months.   Thanks to everyone for your good thoughts.   Have a nice weekend.

Bless his heart! I hope the old guy comes through just fine. That scar will be cool enough to earn him the nickname "Frankenkitty".
