Bubbles is feeling a little better today and don't seem to totally hate me anymore. He is slowely getting used to the evil-collar. I let him out today, even though I'm not suppose to. It seemed to perk him up. Right now I'm sitting outside with the laptop, watching him taking a nap under his favorite plant. I would much rather be inside where it is nice and airconditioned, but am not comfortable with leaving him outside alone since he still sometimes gets a bit freaked out by the collar.
First thing this morning I went out to buy some of Deb's patches. Unfortuanately they would not stick real well on his wound. I think it is just at such a bad spot, with lots of hair around. They stuck just fine on me (yes, like any good Mommy I tested them on myself first!). So it looks like for the the time being we'll have to live with the collar.
Thanks for all the good wishes. Bubbles is getting all the treats and "tuna water" he can handle. Now if you can send some cooler weather so that it is more comfortable for me outside babysitting him, that would help. :-)
