Update: naps, thanks so much you are on to something with this because as it turns out she is 1/2 siamese, obviously if it gets worse than the "tiny" spot she made bleed then i will go to a vet, I'm not an in humane person im also just not someone to freak out about everything and go to a vet or a doctor even... show more naps, thanks so much you are on to something with this because as it turns out she is 1/2 siamese, obviously if it gets worse than the "tiny" spot she made bleed then i will go to a vet, I'm not an in humane person im also just not someone to freak out about everything and go to a vet or a doctor even for myself, so f**k off for acting as if im somehow cruel to animals as i took this kitten in along with a few more, dont act like you know how cruel someone is based on a question on a web site online, thanks
