poor pushkin and his cone of shame.

we took pushkin to the vet after he got hit by a car after we discovered his leg wound was more serious than first suspected. the vet said that while he was probably going to heal just fine, he did have a fractured pelvis and busted elbow and should be anesthetized to repair the gash in his leg and clean up his other wounds properly.

and to prevent infection and speed healing, he has to wear an elizabethan collar, a.k.a. The Cone of Shame for an undetermined amount of time.

he was still a little groggy and out of sorts when i got home and didn’t want to lay down. so he just walked from spot to spot leaning against things to keep from falling over, generally looking quite pathetic and more than a little sad about the whole situation.
