Cosmetic surgery

Wednesday, December 09, 2020

I love how my wife sums things up in short order.

In the last six months, from out of nowhere, we have an indoor older female cat that we named Spooky, and a younger outdoor male cat we named Roughy.

Roughy is all friendly when it comes to feeding time. Purring, rubbing against me, etc. Yesterday I saw that his right ear is injured, probably a fight with another male cat in the area. We are on an acreage, so he had to travel some distance.

I looked again today, looks like he's going to have a permanent little rip, and a scar on that ear. My wife just says "we are not going to get cosmetic surgery for a cat who is just going to get into another scap". So true.

    Oh I think Roughy goes out looking for trouble.

    My friend Carol, who had a more domestic cat with a similar problem (thinks the cat got a cleaner cut on a tin can edge) told me she "crazy glued" her cats ear together. I said "what?" ... she said she put things in place, but some medical tap on the edge, and then used some sort of medical glue to glue the tape to the fur and hold it in place.

    Too late for Roughy. I did see another bad scratch on his forehead a few months ago, some blood, but a lot of fur around it. Nothing I could do then either.
