Thanks everyone!! He is a smart boy- it amazed me too how careful he was on the snow (which really helps to prevent his nail breaks and his ACL injury). We went to the vet the other day because we had an appt for the kitties to get their shots (crating them is the worst!!
) and he had a slight limp the night before. Luckily his knee issues did not get worse so I am guessing he pulled a muscle when romping in the soft snow (we have several feet of slush because it is warm here). The vet did say that eventually he will probably need surgery to fix his ACL injury but since he is not in pain and it is not getting worse- it is not urgent. He got his anal glands done when we were there, which he was not thrilled about- he gave some dirty looks. I had her check them since he "leaks" occasionally and she said she could see why I said leaks because it was very thin and as she said "pungent". I told her my issue was not only does the futon cover and his butt stink, but he tries to "clean it up" and then his mouth stinks and he wants to give kisses....nasty. So after she evacuated them (that is what it was called on the bill
) she went to get the spray to clean it and of course, Mr. Ino beat her to it
. She cleaned his butt off but when we got in the car, I reached under him to move toys before he sat down but he sat on my hand so it smelled and so did the car seat....thank goodness for Natures Miracle...I was gagging the whole way home cause the car reaked!!!
