Dio has a lump on her armpit :(

I'm about 98% certain it's a cyst. They're insanely common in rats and given how quickly it appeared, that seems most likely. But rats are very prone to cancer, so that's in the back of my mind and freaking me out a bit. She's only 1 and a half. Too young for cancer!

Poor wee beast. I'm taking her to the vet in an hour. I expect they'll lance it, which will make her grumpy and uncomfortable. If she wasn't so chubby already I'd give her comfort food. As it is, she will have to content herself with comfort broccoli.

*cuddles rat*

ETA: it's a lump, not a cyst. I feel very dumb for being so complacent, but at least I took her to the vet straight away. She's booked in for surgery on monday morning. I'm hoping it's just a fatty lump and not a tumour. Poor Dio :(

She had a grand old time at the vet though. She got lots of cuddles, got to see a new and exciting place and didn't even seem to mind being poked about lots. She only weed on me once too ^_^

Poor rattie rat. I hope she's okay!

I miss my pet rats. I taught them more tricks than I ever taught my dog, haha.
