Poor Sir Digbert Fanshaw Brownshaw, my beloved boy, has an allergy; an allergy that is so itchy he's made himself almost bright red with scratching.
His inner ears, his mouth and lips, his nose, stomach and eyes are all aglow and he is SO miserable he has taken to his bed. (Well, no real surprise there then!) I have had to lock the bathroom door as he finds the seagrass matting very inviting for scratching by rolling on it - which simply makes him more pink.
The vet has taken swabs to try and investigate the cause. In the meantime he is on a course of antibiotics, has had an anti-cortizone injection and we have some cream for his inner ears.
Even freshly cooked chicken will not coax him from his bed. He is in a major sulk.
He looks like a little angry balloon!!
A demain mes belles.
