Cousin Pirate could use some purrs from the community for his rear area. He ruptured an anal gland on Sunday, and now has a drain in place. The drain should be removed on Thursday. He is on pain meds in the mean time to deal with the discomfort. He is taking it well, and did not have to start wearing the cone of shame until about 1:30 last night. Photo taken a few hours after he came home yesterday. I think if you biggify you can see the drain better and the stitches.
