“Headbutt” Harry, so known for his adorable tendency to bonk his head against humans he’s feeling affectionate towards, has unfortunately become the latest member of our one-eyed cat club.
Earlier this month, what appeared to be a fairly straightforward and treatable infection turned out to be serious enough that our vet had to give us the bad news that he wouldn’t be able to save the eye.
I hear he even got a few headbutts in, or at least what were meant to be: in actual fact they were more sharp jabs with the edge of his cone.
The cone is now off and my visit this evening was greeted with vigorous bonks of his forehead against any part of me that came within range (though his favorite still seems to be the classic forehead-to-forehead bash).
Nah. That trademark “bonk!” still says it all.
