The “Other Cat” is having some kind of skin condition that is causing him some discomfort and making him unhappy. I managed to get him to hold still for the picture with some leftover gravy.
Clyde has been scratching back there for weeks, but until now we couldn’t see anything there. There was something to be felt, as he seemed to have some scaly dry skin under the fur, but getting Clyde to stand still to see anything at the skin level was basically impossible. And now he’s bleeding and it looks like it might be infected. I’m kinda worried about him. He’s not my cat, but he is still a living creature that lives more or less under my roof and I don’t want him to suffer. So if anyone knows what I can do to make him feel better and recover please leave a comment.
