Please….pray for us!! This is not good….
You may remember I took one of Kiki’s rats to the vet a week ago because her leg was swollen… $95.00 later she is on antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and pain meds…. so, things seemed to be going well, she is almost done with her antibiotics. Tonight Kiki gave her the medicine, then she was playing with her. She handed me the rat, and I was petting her, when I found a nasty cut on her shoulder. Dang it!! Thankfully, she is already on antibiotics…I cleaned it out and put some neosporin on it….but what in the world is going on??!! I have looked all over the cage to see if she could be hurting herself, and I am having a very bad feeling that what is going on is that the other rat is biting her. Now, they have lived together their whole lives and always been friends, but I cannot figure out anything else that could be causing the cuts.
I don’t know how much Alan and I are willing (much less able) to put into this rat. I mean, she’s a sweetie, but….still…..I hate for Kiki to have to deal with this. But it’s part of life, I know.
I would be very grateful for your prayers – for the rat, for me, for Kiki.
