Painful paw

Ouchie...
Ouchie…

Well, our little boy may not be stressed after all. The vet gave us two reasons for his habitual picking at his paw. It could be allergies, since we are weaning them to a new kibble, or it could also be because he is bored…

I’m more partial to him being bored. He has been licking his paws ever since we got him last year. He would lick at his paw while sitting on the couch, or in bed before he falls asleep. His persistent licking finally irritated his skin until it was raw. Now he has to wear his cone until his wound heals and continue wearing it till he breaks his habit of picking at his paw.

Looks like we will be going out shopping for more toys for him to keep him busy. I wonder if he did this on purpose to get more toys… Nah.
