Hello guys, I am here to ask what to do with a sick cat.
It appears to be a ringworm near the ear.

And I was also asking what's the chance of cross-infection;
With my bearded dragon and even tarantulas.?
How good are the medicines for a cat.?

And how do I treat my cat if anyone wants to help with that...
The cat isn't too happy...But if anyone could help I would appreciate it.

What are the chances I should send him out at age 6.?
My ex-buddy would throw out a lot of cats and since I've known him, I can think of about 3 or 4 cats they let go.
He wants to be indoors but I don't want my bearded dragon getting sick...

I feel it's his time and kids like me shouldn't own cats...
I have a fungal infection myself.

EDIT:
This is a Mycotic illness that I may not be able to cure.?
What are your guy's opinions on it spreading.?

Ringworm is contiguous but I don't know if a reptile could catch it. I would err on the side of caution though and wash up thoroughly everytime I handled the cat.

I have been washing up every time.
I've made some clear changes to my shampoo & the way I wash my clothes.

I need my PPE equipment but ultimately I read sometimes 7 mos. Average treatment.
We are going to ask Julia's Jungle and then get him out of here hopefully treated to a good home.

Because again, I have an infection and I don't want him re-infected with what I have.
The internet was very 'vague' about this fungal infection;
& I didn't know when I had gotten him that my family is somewhat 'allergic'.

I wonder how I'd let a vet personnel know he might not clear up with me...
There's no 'magic bullet' I take with some of these infections.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
