Hey guys. Sorry, you caught me napping. But I really deserve the rest. Y’see…the last few days for me have been kinda rough. The other day, I began licking my *whispering*nether region. A LOT. To the point where I licked most of the fur off. The mom thought maybe I was having a problem with my *whispering* anal glands again since I’ve had problems before. So you know what that meant. Yep, a visit to the vet.
Well, it wasn’t a gland issue…but I licked so much that now the area is all irritated. It doesn’t take long, y’know. The vet lady said sometimes diarrhea can cause this…though I haven’t had any of that. Anyway, something was irritating me enough to make me lick…and all the licking just causes the area to get more irritated…which makes me wanna lick even more. It’s a vicious circle. And the only way to stop it, the vet lady said, was to let the area heal. So she gave the mom some ointment to put on me AND she said I had stop licking. Which means I have to wear the EVIL CONE OF SHAME! At least when the mom isn’t able to keep an eye on me…like at night.
So you can imagine how my last few days have gone. Not only do I have to put up with the indignity of having stuff rubbed onto my private area, I have to wear that stupid lampshade! I’ve been doing okay…trying hard not to lick…but, boy, it’s not easy.
I wasn’t gonna take a selfie…’specially while I was stuck in that ol’ cone. But I snapped a quick one a little earlier when I was wearing it.
Oh my cod, you guys…this is the PITS! Not only is it uncomfortable…the BirdTV reception on this thing is terrible! Heheheh. Hey…I gotta keep my sense of humor, right?
If you don’t mind, send me some healing purrs and good thoughts that I’m better soon and can lose this thing.
