Hmmm, I wonder if it would be better if the pill was crushed?! The only thing I can think is that he might refuse to eat the squeezy cheese as he can smell or taste the pill! As your present method is working, I think I would stick with that! My RB cat, Disco, would find crushed pills even in a bowl of warm poached trout and eat any area without a sign of it!!
- I can see the look on his face from your description!
It sounds like the lump may have been like a blind spot and the white top could be the puss coming up to the surface! I think it might heal better now that the puss is at the top, as it will be able to be removed!
When you press it, does it seem to hurt him at all? If so, this could be the pressure of the puss!
Could you phone the PetSmart to see if they stock the spray? They might even be able to suggest somewhere else if they don't! Or have you tried online?
Oh dear, I just can't imagine what hurricane season must be like!
I've been in the beginnings of them in Florida and that was bad enough!! It was a good idea to keep them enclosed - they must have felt much safer! Poor Tripod though, sounds exactly what Molly would do!
I don't know if you get these in the US, but when we have Bonfire Night and Chineese New Years, we can buy these anti anxiety drops and serum that I found to work really well!! I can't think of the name right now, but I could always send you some if you would like!
They are both herbal and recommended by a UK animal behaviourist!
to you and Tripod!
