    Nym has giardia!

    Here's the wiki account, so nobody has to go looking for it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giardia I had no idea it was so communicable, granted I knew little to nothing about it before, and I had little reason to be concerned about it. In many ways, I'm annoyed. I'm annoyed with myself for...

    Please keep Lucifer in your thoughts

    We just got back from the vet, Lucifer has an infected sebaceous gland on his neck. It has always been a little bump but we kept it under control by cleaning it regularly (pressing the stuff out) and it's never really been a problem. Last time we were at the vet though she told us to leave it...

    AAHHH!! NOW RINGWORM!

    So I'm about 99% sure Frank has now contracted ringworm. I saw a tiny round 'ring worm looking' red spot on his back the other day. I decided I would just keep an eye on it and see what happened.
