    A few photos of Smokey. A few months ago while we were out he must of got his nail caught in something and he must of pulled away so hard that he ripped the nail clean out of the tissue/toe socket, and then it had ripped down his pad under his toe and the nail was hanging onto the fleshy pad. He also pulled so hard he dislocated his leg aswell, and to this day we don't know what caused all of that to happen.

    He was then taken to the vets and he had to have his toe amputated, and then he wouldn't eat at all when he came back from the vets, so we took him back and he had a high level of something in his kidneys, when normally it should be at around 10 it was up to 17 which wasn't good and they told us that if it had reached the urinary tract then nothing could be done for him. So they kept him in over night and he had fluids and his levels in his kidneys went back down, so it turned out he must of been dehydrated from not eating or drinking, so now he is fine.
