Surgery went well. After a night at the vet and the apparent fear that we had abandoned him, Charlie is safe at home.
Charlie has a shorter, sleeker version of his once elegant tail. The vet took off almost two inches. Then to add insult to injury, Dr. Morgan shaved 2″ off his tail too.
It is a sad, sad day for Charlie. So many indignities, so little time. 10 days in the cone of doom. Then freedom. Mom is already finding reasons to take the cone off. I’m sure the vet will take her to task – again.
Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. We are considering chain-mail pantaloons for the further protection of his backside. But knowing Charlie he’d only start on the front end. sigh
