Buddy is doing well. He has totally forgiven me for fixing that little problem he had.LOL He does not miss a thing! Now as far as his face, it was touch and go. In spite of my cleaning it everyday, he still developed a larger plug of pus in his cheek. The scab came off and you could see it. Clearly he still had infection. I kept cleaning on it. Once I was sitting in the kitchen floor wiping it down and I started pulling the plug, trying to remove it. I was pulling hard. I know it hurt him but he laid there and let me do it. Another cat came up to him while I was doing it and he slashed out at her. She approached him again and again he slashed at her. It hurt him so much what I was doing yet he allowed me to do it. He is going to be a good kitty. He finally popped the plug out by scratching it. He came up to me with it running down his face. As I washed his face he was purring. Now he is playing. He feels good now. He still has a huge hole in the side of his face but it is closing up and looking better. I don't think he will ever be able to open his eye all the way anymore. I am not sure that he did not lose some of his sight. He is going to survive this one.
