Bare Patch Of Skin 8(
Yesterday I found a small bare patch of skin on Odie's bum. It's about 1 inch x 1 cm. I did a websearch, and aparently it can be anything... Yesterday it was white and scaly, but today it's a bit red and scaly. I'm ruling out an allergy cause I think whatever it is he catched from my neighbor's cat. I live in a house, but my room has a different entrance from the house. I enter through the garage and at the end of it, there is the door to my room. I have my own bathroom, fridge and microwave, so I really don't need to enter the house. In the house 2 other girls live, and the cat is theirs. The cat is allowed to get in and out as he pleases, and they don't love him much. When I pointed out that he had some balding spots to the owner of the cat, she told me "yeah, I don't want him anymore cause he has mange". But they haven't done really anything about it. They don't take him to the vet, the don't give them away, they don't take him to the shelter. I feel sad for the cat cause the cat is so lovely! All he wants is to be petted and played with. But, of course, Odie walks in and out the garage, whenever I take him anywere and sometimes he stops to say hello to my neighbors. So since the cat is always around there, I think whatever it is, he catched from the cat. The cat has long balding spots around his head, neck, legs, and belly that look white and scaly.
I was thinking from what I read yesterday that it might be ringworm. I'll be taking Odie to the vet this Saturday, so I'll let you know what the vet tells me about it. Cross your finger for me that's nothing bad. 8(
