"The problem here is a totalitarian uniformity, a cult-like mentality such that even allies are enemies if they fail to follow the Exact Party Line. " - Phyllis Chesler

OH MY G-D! I finally understand this phrase. This little boy certainly has it. He is cute as a button. Slept with me all night. Nuzzled in and didn't move. Purrs LOUD. But man oh man if he doesn't like something he lets you know. I will get some video of the sound he makes and get it online for you. There is no way to describe it.

He came home last night from the hospital and he has had a cone on his head for three days. He hasn't bathed in three days and he smells horrible. I couldn't stand it. So I took the cone off and let him clean himself a little and then put it back on for the night.

This morning I took the shower head and sprayed him and wiped him down. He didn't like that very much but the human momma wins! :-) Then I let him clean himself again for an hour and watched him so he couldn't clean where his testicles used to be and open that wound again. He doesn't like when I make him stop...that's for sure.

Here are more photos from this morning. You can see just how big he will be by looking at his leg.

He is gorgeous and it's great to see him look so good and hear that he's doing well too.

Mark, thanks for stopping by. I visited your blog too. He is a cutie with a tude!

Jessica, glad your smiling. Although I doubt you have another expression ;-) Your photo is sweet! Love your blog too.

Candace, waiting on one more test about his thyroid. Other than that all are back and he got a clean bill of health.

Leo and I just need to get used to each other.
