I didn't mention that on Tuesday evening, after a very long day -- which began with a beautiful funeral service but ended many, many hours later -- my boy Fritz sensed that we desperately needed a distraction. So, with barely enough time to make it to the regular vet's before she closed, he ran into a piece of wire fencing, causing a deep gash just below his right eye. You can click on the image to see a closeup of his newly shaved eyebrow and his stitches.
And as you can also see, it doesn't seem to be bothering him much. He leaves the stitches alone, and does not seem too self-conscious about the shaved eyebrow. (What, will he insist on a piercing next?) And now, 3 times a day we have the distracting chore of applying antibiotic cream to the stitches. That, he hates. So that's fun.
And as you can see from the picture at right, he is being a little bit coy about his new look, but is still trying to cheer us up with his usual goofy smile.
The cat, however, is not impressed.
