This thread shows we really need a new forum "Our Pets"
and what ails them and us.
Our poor Tiger has had two vet visits for his wounded foot, and multiple bandagings, and still tries his best to take the bandages off.
We've tried explaining that this is for his own good, but it doesn't seem to convince him.
One good thing is the vet said "this cat is about 10 years old, right?" to which I had to reply, "No, he's 16." and the reply "Wow, he's really in good shape for that age."
We discovered a partial solution by using baby socks to cover the affected foot as far up his leg as we can.. a problem with cats is their eternal licking and chewing...
It is a curious thing, this man - animal relationship.
