At first it seemed to be as if something had poked him and got broken off. We tried to pull it...

    Through a series of unfortunate events, Snowball may have developed ringworm. We've been to see the vet, and we both arrived, independently, at the conclusion that it kind of looks like it might be ringworm, it probably isn't ringworm, but because I may have been exposed to it at the shelter...
