Thanks for all of the wishes!

We got a bit of bad news though :sad: Barkley has melanoma. There's a small growth on the top of his head - looks a bit like a skin tag. The vet confirmed that it's skin cancer but that on a scale of 1 to 10, it's only a 1. He says it shouldn't be anything to worry about for years to come and since it isn't bothering him at all there isn't much point removing it as it could then run the risk of spreading. Other than that, he's 100% healthy and the vet said health-wise, he's closer to age 6 or 7 than 10! Still makes me worry though :sad:

Meg I'm sorry to hear of this. But it does sound like he at least isn't at a high risk of it spreading. At least you know it's there and can watch it.:pray:
