I'm sorry to hear of this with Puddles. "...outside of her eyes are very bloody..." is unclear to me. Can you upload a photo(s) of her eyes to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as Please check that the photo(s) is in focus prior to uploading it. I understand that it's late where you live and so you're welcome to return to this conversation when it's more convenient for you. I'm in the Pacific daylight time zone.
