Since someone requested to see a picture of my cat in the cone of shame, here it is. He is actually getting better, they removed the bandages on Friday and he just has the splint on his ear to keep it straight. He's still not happy about that but it will make him better.
Here's a general picture of him in the cone.
You can see the splint on his ear.
I kind of like this picture. I'm glad the bandages are off because he is looking like a normal cat again.
