Was going to do a dump run today. Wound up taking a nap instead. Guess I needed that.
Gave Houdini a bit of a washup and trimmed the matted fur around where he hurt his tail, so I could do a better exam. He did scrape some skin off, but it's drying out now that it's exposed. He didn't like the spray topical antibiotic that R uses on the critters as needed... but he put up with it. And, he's wagging his tail again, enough that we know he's got use of it. I expect it still hurts some.
We've pointedly not been commenting about his tail's appearance just now. One would think there was more physical structure under that fur. It's not a lot bigger around than my thumb where he hurt himself.
Time for me to clean up now.
