They moved the spay/neuter day to Thursday the 27th. July might be just barely at weight this Thursday, but her hindquarters are still messy with “scald”–icky layers of skin that aren’t quite ready to slough off yet. Jumbo is up at 2.8 pounds now, and Jax is right behind him. We’re done with the nasty tasting medicines. There’s still ointment for July’s hindquarters, and warm soaks to loosen up the dead skin, but she’s taking it fairly well. They’re still getting the A/D canned food and loving it. They also all eat a lot of I/D kibble.
Jumbo has been so cuddly lately. He gazes up from my lap, and if I look down, he often has to get up and pat my face. He is seriously trying to get me to lick him, and keeps washing my face to demonstrate. He accepts petting. From Steve Martin:
“I gave my cat a bath the other day…they love it. He sat there, he enjoyed it, it was fun for me. The fur would stick to my tongue, but other than that…” I’m not up for that, but the cats would like it.
