one for years. She lived about ten years blind in one eye.
I have no idea if it would be treatable but asking would

I just was careful about approaching the cage to make
sure she could see me or started talking as I approached
so she would hear me and not get scared.
Yes, he is a senior citizen in the flying squirrel world
at 11 years old. You have done good caring for him. Irene
still has Laddie if you remember them.

On the tumor thing, I had one with that and she kept
chewing at it. It was a real mess. I got her on meds
and treated her with Triple Antibacterial ointment and
she healed up real nice.
