Ah nice, thanks, that raises my hopes that it will work.The balloon type e-collar might work where his wounds are located. I just don't know. Hoping it will and that it doesn't freak him out too bad.
I'm thinking Terry is running away from everyone simply because he's presumably either getting pilled or taken to the Vet, or have his wound tended to so often that he simply doesn't know when it's safe just to be around someone and relax, poor little guy. When this is all over and he can just hang out he should change. I recently took my very clingy cat to the Vet for his semi annual check-up and he was weary of me for a few days afterwards, afraid I was going to stuff him in the carrier again, I guess. But he's now forgiven me and begs me to pick him up again.
I think you must be right about the name of what's wrong with his wounds, because I read the same thing as you, and it certainly doesn't match with what the Vet told you. I think Terry would be dead by now if that's what it was
Yes, I understand what you mean. Nice explanation, thank you!
Terry did go through a similar but different rebellious phase some 10 days back. But after that, I made sure that I pet him way more often than I trouble him for meds or other things, so that he associates me approaching him more with getting pets and it worked fine till now. So, it's surprising he's scared again all of a sudden.
I'm wondering if there's some other reason for it. For example, I've seen my dog jump for every single noise whenever he's on long hunger strikes. So I wonder if maybe Terry is hungry, or has some physical discomfort or a particular fear.
Btw, I love your "Every Life Should Have Nine Cats".
Now that I think about it, we did have a pretty loud family argument yesterday, I guess that could have upset him too :/
