No new pictures tonight, so here’s some additional pictures of Calpurnia.
Gus had a vet visit today. Part of the reason was to get the effectiveness of his medication checked, but there is a hitch.
The vet had warned that some cats have a reaction to the medication on the ear. From the description, I figured this was a fast reaction, causing itching on the top of the head. But I noticed that a week or so ago that Gus was getting a reaction on his ears themselves. By the weekend the itching caused him to cut some scrapes on his head too, plus his ears are irritated and scabby in parts.
Poor guy. And the vet visit has the other cats all worked up too.
The theory is that the creme the medicine is in is causing the irritation, and a new kind will be better. I have some pills for a time until his skin heals up. The vets also gave him some ointment to make his ears feel better now, which is a relief.
I am really looking forward to the struggle to give him the pills every day.
