Another Update on Festus

Mama took Fessy back to the v-e-t today. She had to drop him off after lunch & pick him up around 4:00. This time they just cut a hole in his ear, but didn't put stitches around like last time. The v-e-t told Mama to make sure she squeezes his ear 4 or 5 times a day. She doesn't know why he didn't put a drain in, probably because he's a country v-e-t & maybe he just doesn't do that. He doesn't recommend using a hot compress. We're just hoping it heals up this time. It's hard on Fes & it's hard on Mama. Her eyes leak something terrible when she has to squeeze on his ear, she hates hurting him like that but that's all she can do right now.
Thanks for all your purrs.

That sounds like a painful process for Mama and Festus both. At least the ear might drain better since the V*T left a hole in the ear this time.

Hope Mama has lots of clean rags to to clean off his ear goop.
