so did i mention that Oreo had a limp last week? well, the night before last, i was rubbing his tummy, and then i found a HOLE IN HIS ARMPIT. 8I it was so creepy! we took him to the vet last week because of the limp(which was on the same leg as the hole btw). they said his leg wasn't broken, but that he probably wrenched the nerves in his shoulder.
so we took him to the vet again yesterday, and the surgeon said it must have been an abscess of skin that busted. they had to keep him overnight and give him stitches. he's home now though, and sleeping beside me<3 hopefully he won't need to go to the vet again any time soon <<
also, based on the last journal, Splatterpath has won as the name choice! thanks for your help!
