Coned

A tiny cut on her left rear paw has flared into a troublesome inflammation, exacerbated by constant licking, in her instinctive attempt to heal it. Yesterday the vet cleaned everything up and prescribed antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. $80. The cone will give the paw a chance to get back to normal.
In the meantime, Birdie has been prescribed more rest and relaxation, and extra sympathy, which she non-chalantly attempted to milk into extended bedtime privileges. (No. This may look routine, but this is not where she sleeps. Nice try, wounded warrior. Photo by Kathleen.)
