The great news is that Bugsy the Pirate is home. As expected, he's a cone-head for the next 5-7 days...and boy does he hate it. We've been home a couple of hours now, and he walks around the house (1) bumping into things with the edge of the cone/collar because he's not used to the extra width (hmmm, should I put a "wide load" sign on him?), and (2) stopping suddenly and backing up, as if he can get the thing to come off that way. Tricking it to come off, yeah, that's the ticket!
Otherwise, he's kinda nervous and anxious in his walking around, not ready to settle down in one place yet. He'll lay down for a few minutes, then get right back up and wander some more. I'm sure he'll settle down for a nap soon enough, though. He did eat a little bit, until Pixie came along for a good sniff of "Eau d' Vet". As you'd expect the other kitties have been cautiously approaching to see just what's different (the smells! the cone! the...hey, dood, where's your eye?!).
Here's a short video I took...if'n it works/posts correctly. This is my first video on a post! Watch out world, a monster may have been created...and I ain't talking about the kitty with the stitches....
And a couple of pictures (don't look if you're squeamish!):
Hopefully things will all settle down here in awhile and Bugsy will get adjusted to the new sight and the (temporary) wide-load cone.
Such A Cool CAT Video
