he couldn’t be more different than his twin sister.
he’ll poop in a dirty litter box. he’ll eat anything you put in front of you. he comes when you call. he speaks seven languages.
he also has a nervous habit of scratching on the back of his neck with his back feet. he wears a cone of shame so it can heal.
the wound was progressing. it was healing. it was growing hair. he probably only had a few more weeks until he could be free. but today he got out of the cone and scratched at it wildly and the bloody gash reappeared and now he’s in pain. from his own doing.
i have this magical aloe salve that i put on it, despite his objections. he knows he is to blame.
but sometimes you just gotta itch that scratch.
like the dirty dog you are.
