Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween from our little devil!

Sometimes things get so stupid at our house, I think that if there were a hidden camera here, we'd have to move. seriously. Tonight's escapade involved all three of us, myself, H and the cat. Scout had a raw spot on his stomach that he kept licking and picking at until finally, it has turned into a real mess. Since we don't have one of those cone things, we (translated=my friend Carole and myself) came up with a plan. Put on antibiotic ointment, cover with gauze and then wrap with an ace bandage. We put a lot of thought into the process, even deciding that we'd use safety pins instead of the butterfly clip so that he wouldn't swallow anything. easy peasy with a 22 pound cat. H was warily pressed into service to hold the cat while I put on the ointment and did the wrapping. I don't think I've ever seen his ears go back quite that far onto his head. When we got the bandage in place, Scout looked like one of those fat sumo wrestler cats that Kliban used to draw. I had planned to post a photo on my blog. That would imply that the ace bandage remained in place long enough for me to remove the lens cap from my camera. ahem...send bandaids.

It is amazing how quickly a cat can go from being the most mellow creature to a devil with claws? Love the horns, so funny. I do have bandaids.
