update on the raccoon-mauled kitten


The baby is doing much better. Yesterday he batted at Iris Uber Alles's hair playfully and purred, and later he initated some mild horseplay with the other kittens. That was a breakthrough: feeling well enough to play again! His wounds are healing up nicely.

He keeps one of his eyes shut and the other open only a slit, but he is able to find his way around. I'm very happy with his quick healing.

I think I see a familial resemblance between kitty and your burning man aquaintance. Just sayin'

So glad he's feeling better - what a fighter. I almost couldn't get through reading that story - what an ordeal.

What a sweet baby! He's lucky to have such a good foster mama.
