    Rockiewound3.jpg Here's a picture, I just noticed that little bump beside her eye, maybe she took some feathers off? She isn't closing that eye completely but I'm assuming that's because of the gunk beside it.

    @zoo mom auto correct is amazing lol. I meant 0.4. I had to use the same amount for Gracie because she is so little. With her metcam she gets 0.3.

    Poor little gal. Why not go take a nice hot bath or shower and take her into the bathroom with you? Close the door, set her up with a nice little towel to sit on and let her rest? The humidity and heat might help soften up that gunk. I wouldn't try cleaning it off without consulting the vet, JMHO. It could be a scab.

    @Garet That sounds like a great idea! It's been worrying me so much that I wanted to try to get it off but the possibility of it being a scab had me unable to do it. I have a few things to do today but once I'm home again and I'm 100% sure the cats aren't roaming, I'll do that!

    @metalstitcher Do you mean .03 Metacam? Lucy was only getting .07 and she weighs a lot more than Gracie. Does depend on the concentration but I assume that yours is compounded the same as the one I get because it's from the same place.

    @Ilse No problem, I really hope it helps out a little. :C Poor little Rocky's really having a bad week, ain't she?

    How are you holding out? Are you taking care of yourself, too? I know how easy it is to focus all your care into a pet and not look after yourself.

    @Garet Well, funny enough I just got home from an appointment with my doctor and now I'm on antibiotics too! I managed not to notice my finger that swelled up and had a red mark on it, so we're just assuming it's a spider bite, hah. But other than that I'm doing just fine, thank you!

    @Ilse it's great that you're taking care of you, too.
