@  CindyR : (27 August 2014 - 04:59 PM) Forgot to update about Gizmo's tumour removal that went in for a test. Not ZGT :clap: , but was a type of cancer (don't ask me to repeat the name the vet gave me) that was still in a very early stage just under the skin. From the lab results, there was healthy tissue around the tumour, which hopefully means all was taken out and will not grow again. So my little red eyed furbag will still be around for a long time :thud:
@  lollyh : (22 August 2014 - 02:57 PM) sigh!!! todays scenario-why does candi have to be soo difficult? :( .while i'm tending to her. mellow decides to puts her paws out into the vacuum cleaner nozzle through the cage bars while its on.thankfully it doesn't suck hard but she likes the sucking as she repeatedly put her paws into the nozzel. lol.loopy rat she is.bwahaha
