|Like to leap over gates? This could happen to you!|
See, a couple of nights ago, Layla opted to leap over the pet gate in the middle of the night instead of staying downstairs with old SoLT like she's supposed to. While leaping, she hit her hind paw on the gate and tore one of her nails off right down to the quick. This resulted in a trip to the vet, who wasted no time in producing the Cone of Shame.
The Real Cats thought it was fascinating to see their dog in a cone. Unfortunately old SoLT did not have a camera handy to capture their reaction. Let's just say it was priceless.
Layla has to wear the cone only when the people aren't around to watch her and stop her from licking her wound, and it should only be a week or two before she's off it completely. From now on, old SoLT will not close the gate at night. She will just close her bedroom door.
|Sometimes, life "cones" you, leaving you|
disoriented, sad, and wondering what the
heck just happened.
