In my household we have three kitties – Higgy, Pooka, and Elizabeth. All of whom you’ve seen photos of (they tend to be a favorite subject of mine). Sadly, our little Pooka is the one plagued by medical issues. Recently, he started taking a hyperthyroid medication to adjust his metabolism. It was working great…until he apparently developed an allergic reaction. His ears itched him so badly that he scratched up the area on the front of his face. We had the vet check him out and he’s now on a topical antibiotic to keep them from getting infected, but to keep him from making the scratches worse he’s wearing a cone.
Now, I love this cat to death. We’ve done all sorts of things to keep him alive. But, I have to admit, the cone is cracking me up. I feel awful about it too, as he just looks so sad. But, I just can’t help but laugh when I see him in it. See what I mean?
