Day Five

So one of the stitches has come (or been pulled out). We’re now being very vigilent with the collar, letting him out of it when supervised so he can eat. Then it goes back on.

Had a nice cuddle on the bed this afternoon when he napped and I watched TV until the phone went off. Diesel, by the way, DESPISES the collar. He flipped out this morning when we put it on, but he’s now far more resigned to his fate with it. We’re not going to let disaster strike because we were too weak to look after him properly.

Larky went to visit and ate his biscuits again, but, to her credit, she also popped up onto the bed and licked the back of his head. She’s nervous of the collar too, but told her we have an astronaut in the family – hey, it amused me.

Also took some photos of the scar, so I can post them here to show how things are developing.

Next vet appointment booked for Monday at 10:40am, so will see what they make of his progress, and also see if he’s forgiven them at all!

Good news (day five)

Just popped in to feed Diesel and sort out a full-sized litter tray for him (we’ve been using a kitten litter tray until now because it’s a lot shallower and easier for him to get into and out of) and I found him lying on the bed next to my husband getting a full on cuddle!

Left the two of them to it 🙂
