It would seem that taking that leg off is exactly what Icarus needed. Now he's feisty and energetic. Poor thing has an e-collar on which makes it hard for him to eat or drink but I'm working with him on that one. The problem is that he has two things to overcome - navigating with the e-collar and without a leg. Poor guy keeps sorta falling down, then he gets tired and lays on his blankets.
I imagine it'll take awhile for him to figure things out. I fed him some gooshy foodz in a hand-held bowl and he gobbled some of that.
Anyway I'm tired, just wanted to get out this update.
