I had a big whole in my neck where Shadow ripped the fur off picking on me. Mom putted medicine on it and let me run around, but then the next day or the next Mom noticed the scab and missing fur were bigger so she putted more medicine on it. Now it is getting better and I can wrestle with Merlin again. He likes to play Wrestle Wild Cat with me, which is a lot of fun since he is big like a wildcat. I know because I saw a picture in a book of a big, black wild cat that looked like Merlin. None of the wild cats look like me. Mom says that is okay because everyone looks different and that is what makes us special. Anyways, my neck is getting better. Mom says if it is not a lot better by Thursday she is going to take me to the vet place where they do tune-ups on poodies. I don't like that place and always sit way back in my carry case and shake. So I'm doing my best to get better. ~Ko Ko

Salsa is sick but we are not sure with what. He is peeing large amounts of blood now of and on, but does not seem to be in any pain or even discomfort. He is just terribly tired. I'm very upset because he is our alpha dude and the sweetest squish. Salsa is the one who runs where ever he wants around and sneaks a sleep with us when he can. Rob is horribly upset because they have a close bond. Salsa has always been "Rob's rat", so named because Salsa named himself that. Rob doesn't want to put him through a lot of painful tests since he doesn't seem to be in any pain. In fact, when he is out, he still makes a point to go after the cats. ~Rat Mom

Could Salsa's problem be a bladder infection? The vet could give him medicine without doing much to intrude. Could someone have hurt him while you were gone? Hugs and prayers.

We first noticed a small amount of blood off and on about a month and a half ago and it went away so we figured it just might have been a hurt from them wrestling, but then we noticed a large amount of blood this last weekend. I figured if he had a bladder infection he would be in pain with that much blood and definately not running around like he was. The only reason I think it might be cancer is the blood and the excessive sleeping he does sometimes. The rest of the time he acts quite normal. We are watching the probelm closely, but figure as long as he is eating and playing there is not a lot we can do. I have had rattsies on meds when they need it, but the meds are so hard on their little bodies that I try to use them sparingly. THank you all for your caring good wishes, I will keep you updated. ~Rat Mom
