Elliott's Catmas 'Present.'

So the night before the day before Catmas, Elliott had had enough of his ear drain and got it out. Imagine my mom's panic when she saw this thing lying on the couch! She called the cat fix-it place right away to see if she needed to zoom him over to emergency again or what. Luckily for all it was OK to wait until the next day, so the day before Catmas, Elliott and Mom went first thing to visit our regular vet. El got a replacement inserted, but his healing progress has been somewhat delayed. We're not sure when he'll be rid of it and the air pillow collar.

He does make do, though. Here Ivan keeps him company as they try to get some faint sun today.

Poor guy anyway.


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwww,poor Elliott.
    We do not blame him for wanting that drain out.
    Too bad it extends his recovery.
    Purrs for more sunshine . That might make him happier.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  2. Poor baby. Of course he was tired of that silly thing. Who can blame him??

  3. At least the air pillow collar is a lot better than the plastic cone of frustration!

  4. Elliott, you probably thought that was a smart thing to do... but I guess it wasn't!

  5. Poor Elliott! We hope he'll be rid of that drain and the air pillow real soon. Lucky for the humans replacement could wait until a visit to the regular vet.

  6. Elliott você quer matar a mamãe de susto?
    Oh querido espero que você tenha uma boa recuperação e fique livre desse colar o mais rápido possível.

  7. Aww! Poor Elliott! We are sending purrs to him!! xx

  8. Elliott...please get better soon!
    Here's to a healthy 2016...

  10. Poor Elliot. It must be frustrating for him to have something constantly annoying his ear. It's nice of Ivan to keep him company.

  11. Aw, Elliot, I feel bad for you. I had to wear a cone-thingy for about a week one time, and it was no fun. I hope you heal quickly. ~Ernie

  12. Poor Elliott! We hope you get rid of all that drainage stuff soon! Here's to good health for all of you in 2016!
