How terrible! Lucky it was the white and not the iris. That must have been
really frightening.

i was very worried because their little eyes are very delicate,i noticed the thorn on monday,but i didnt want to interfere with the eye and make it worse,but i saw today it hadnt moved so i knew it was in bedded into the white part.thank god it wasnt worse,i kept waiting for the vets to ring with bad news.ever the worrier me.anyway the vet said alls well.alfs is asleep on our bed.

Oh my goodness. Poor little Alfie, but thank the gods it was only the whites. Kisses & hugs for the little man.
