i posted this a while ago. he is all better now. i live in a very small town (50 people) that uses only oil heat no gas so that wasent a problem. it turned out that when i was away for a few days a few weeks before i noticed the scabs my step mother accedently (or so she says) let onyx out of the house and he got into a fight with one of the stray tom cats that hang around my house. i found out about it after i went to let one of the dogs out and onyx ran out i had to go catch him and when i came back in she told me he had gotten out when i was away and she dident go and chase him and when he came back home he had a few cuts from getting into a fight

Thanks for the update, I'm glad he's doing better.

I strongly urge you to have Onyx tested for FeLV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline aids) if he has been fighting.

The test should be done 3 months after the fighting incident because it can take that long for the antibodies to show up in the blood.

It is a simple blood test (called the SNAP) and not expensive.
