Smudge Update, Day 5

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!

Good deal! With my cats, the tail thing means they forgive me and are going back to normal (plus they go back to "talking" to me rather than giving me the evil eye and walking away. So glad Smudge is doing well. Oh yeah, we (Jet, Samantha and I) understand. They send good kitty wishes. K

Oh I'm so happy to hear Smudge is doing so well and gets to keep his tail. He'll be back in charge in no time.

I'm so glad Smudge is feeling better! I bet he can't wait to get that collar off.

I also am that happy mix of keen sewer and cat fan/owner so I have been following your posts lately with empathy; thanks for the latest good news. I have two that think the sewing room is where I go just to entertain them. OllieV
