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.

  25. Oh, Ernie, that sounds quite itchy, but Thank Cat you haven’t lost your humour…MOL 😀 Will send Healing Pawkisses and purrayers to feel better soon

  26. Oh Ernie, purrayers and POTP to help you heal up ! You were a good sport to snap your selfie despite wearing your satellite dish.

  27. Poor baby! I hope you’re feeling better soon. And you look adorable even in the cone!

  28. Oh dear… we can’t add much more to this, other than we hope you get better real soon! Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang.

  29. Oh, Ernie, we sure hope you heal very quickly. That cone thing is not fun at all….not to mention all the other stuff. Hang in there, buddy, we’re pulling for you. ♥

  30. Oh, Ernie, we’re so sorry you’re having problems! We’re sending lots of purrs to you.

  31. Dang, Ernie. We’re sorry all that is happening, and that you gotta wear that cone of shame. Purring and praying you heal up soon, buddy.

  32. Oh Ernie, I’m sorry to hear your back door is irritated. That has to be so uncomfortable. Hopefully the medicine is soothing your skin so it can heal. I’ve never had to wear the cone of shame, but it looks very awkward. I hope it’s off soon. I’ll do extra healing purrs today and send them your way. With that cone on, you should be able to hear them! 🙂

  33. I’m sending purrs your way, Ernie! You really do look unhappy. I hope you heal fast so that cone can come off.

  34. I can only imagine being itchy and not being able to scratch…torture.
    POTP nd I hope that soon we will read about the cone coming off.

  35. Awwww, lots of hugs and purrs from me and dad. Here’s to hoping you heal up real soon and can be rid of that damn satellite dish around your head.

  36. oooh, I like that the cone is clear so you can see around.. most of them are opaque hindering vision..

  37. Oh Ernie we feel sooo bad for you! Hoping you can take that off soon!

  38. Oh no, Ernie. I wonder what happened? I’ve never seen a clear cone like that. At least you can see all around you. No other cats can sneak up on you in that one.

  39. Wow we missed the see through cone post. What happened? I saw from later you get a blue one that’s better. Let’s hope this resolves soon * paw hug *
