Blistering

Tigger was briefly hobbled recently, due to blisters on his feet. The vet said it was probably the result of his FIV. This would be the first actual symptom of the disease he shown. He’s been put on anti-biotics and an anti-inflammitory drug, which seem to have had a very quick (blisteringly quick?) beneficial effect on him. Perhaps he was playing it up a bit to get sympathy, knowing how pathetic he looked limping around everywhere. He certainly did have us waiting on him hand and foot for a few days there (which we kind of do anyway I suppose). Anyway, here’s a picture of him back on his feet again (as well as some of him not so much on his feet here, here, here, here, and here):

Oh, I didn’t realize Tigger had FIV! Poor things.
