Took corny to the vet yesterday to have his drain removed. It was pretty gross to see someone remove a six inch rubber tube from inside my cat! Still, this means that there’s one less thing for him to chew at / lick at so he’s that much closer to having his cone off all the time. We had it off most of last night and he was pretty happy, and pretty good about not chewing at the stitches. He gave another great look of indignation / betrayal when I put the cone back on him in the evening. If you think cats have no personality, put a cone on their head. Nothing says “you bastard monkey” more than the look he gave me. I just want the hole from the tube to heal a bit before he gets to keep it off. I’ll post a pic of my frankenstein’s monster looking cat tonight.
