Another dressing change today. Smudge continues to heal well, so our next visit is over the weekend. Yay!
One good thing that's coming out of this is that Smudge is getting over his fear of the car and the cat carrier. When I picked him up today, the vet tech said he was asleep and didn't wake up when she moved him to the carrier. He continued to sleep almost all the way home. Granted, this is a short ride, but he used to yowl and wet. So this is a huge improvement.
Another plus today. In spite of the bandage, Smudge is starting to hold his tail high. Those of you who are owned by cats understand this--it's the normal, "happy" tail posture. So the boy is feeling very good!
