Poor Spud, he has sensitive skin
After the first day that resembled spring, one which Spud spent charging around the field overnight he developed a sore looking patch on his neck, about the size of a 50p piece, it was troubling him, it was obviously very itchy. So Mr Uphilldowndale took him off to the vets. Where they shaved the fur off around the patch, Mr Uhdd said Spuds skin coloured up and started to swell in a flash. Poor Spud.
Spud came home with steroid cream, antibiotics, a fish oil supplement for his food and an £80 bill.
Dodger the kitten-cat decided after that upset, what everyone needed was a nice cup of tea, so he put the kettle on.
The kitten-cats have, by their measure a very productive week, amongst others, we’ve got up in the morning to find a dead jackdaw (I’d have liked to see how they got it through the cat flap!)
and a poor shrew that ended up with its head stuck in the mop bucket, not a nice way to go.
I can report Spud is looking much better and adores the fish oil on his food. We just hope that unlike me, Spud is not allergic t the antibiotics.
