COT: Pills And Grubby Ears
Au had an infected cut (it was tiny!!!) a fortnight ago which became infected. It retreated with medication. However, last week his lymph nodes were a bit swollen so we suspected lingering infection. The vet prescribed a shot and a short course of pills.
Because we caught it early, it was no big deal. The day after his trip to the vet, Au was fine again. In fact, the pills seem to have stimulated his energy AND his appetite.
He's been racing about, stuffing his face with "rost chikkun" and causing all sorts of trouble. He trashed the boxes in the utility room, and turned over the laundry basket out of sheer devilry. And he's asked for extra meals, extra treats and been super cuddly to boot.
Au's pills run out today so we're hoping that everything stays fine.
Here he is, looking handsome - except for his ears which are grubby. It's not mites or bugs. It's either ear wax or he's sticking them into the storm drain. I clean them regularly with a swipe of corn oil. Au hates the feeling but oil is better than soap.
Anyone else have a cat with grubby ears?
