    Red Mark Appeared Suddenly

    Hi, I noticed this mark on on side of Loki's muzzle area this morning after he had his breakfast, he definitely didn't have this before so the only thing I can think of is that he went into the shower after I was done and may have touched something soapy left over on the wall? It's been about 3...

He is my husbands shadow, and barley tolerates me until we are alone and then I'm his...
