For Petey Sake
September is turning out to be a crappy month for ratties. On Monday I took the boyfriend's rat, Atlas, to the vet because Atlas looked like he'd been in a fight with little wounds all over his body. Turns out Atlas hasn't been scrapping, he just has mites. Here's some rat trivia for you. All rats have mites. However, it's only when a rat's immune system is compromised that the mites become a problem. Why is Atlas' immune system compromised? He has a tumor. A tumor that will cost $300 to remove.
Other than the tumor, Atlas is in great shape and he's only a year old. Which means the tumor needs to come out. If he was an old man, we might not go that route. But only a year old? Not to mention the sweetest rat in the world. Hell yeah that tumor needs to be gone. I just need to figure out some financial logistics.

In happier news, I am now on scarf ummm 9? Plus I found another crochet pattern that looks way cool, it's the Catherine's Wheel Scarf (Rav link). Since the Knitting Room was having it's big sale on Saturday I scored some Cascade 220 to make it with. Hopefully I'll have enough yarn to make 2 scarves, one for the Rez and one for me! I got fall colors, you know, browns, oranges, dark greens. It'll either look really great or disgustingly hideous. It's all part of the excitement of crochet!
