Please purr for Rocket!
See that red nasty mark on Rocket's tail fin? That's a horrid secondary infection called Fin Rot. Basically the bacteria eats away the fin, not nice.
There are many causes of Fin Rot, stress, poor water conditions or as in Rocket's case due to an injury. You see, a couple of days ago Rocket saw how much fun us cats have and attempted to jump out of his tank to join us. Only Rocket forgot that his tank has a lid to stop us cats from joining him.
He bashed his little head really hard and cut his tail fin. For a while afterwards poor Rocket had a very big headache and spent a lot of time on the bottom of the tank. But yesterday he rallied round.
So please purr for our entertainment, um we mean or friend, Rocket.
