Well, Floyd seemed much better last night and this morning so I think he was just having a tummy ache yesterday morning. And he is still nice and friendly with me so he apparently isn't too bothered about his tail fur. Thanks to everyone who posted the nice comments - I felt really bad about it and you helped me feel better. Since he is really quite ill (even though he doesn't act like it, he does have Lymphoma, and pancreatitis, and hepatits) he seems fine. And the good news is that his other bald areas (his belly and leg where he had to be shaved for the tests he had a couple months back) are growing in - his fur is longer so it does take a while. His belly fur is growing in gray, so I think that it is mostly undercoat I am seeing. It is very floofy. I did find another matted area on his neck (I think he rubs his nasty chin acne on it) and will try to get it out without too much fur loss, but haven't figured out how to do that yet - combing is the best choice but I don't want what happened with his tail to happen again. His chin acne is finally getting better - I read on a couple sites that it can take a month or more to clear up, which made me feel a bit better about it - it is so gross to look at or touch to put anything on it.
So I also wanted to say Welcome to anyone who has found their way here from the Tuxedo Gang Hideout. Virgil and Kirzon were officially introduced today.
I am hoping to get some more pictures up tonight, but I have erands to run after work so I may not get a chance. If not then I will get some up tomorrow for sure.
Thanks again for the support everyone!
