Sprocket has permission to sprocket about the house without his doughnut!
He still has to wear it when he isn’t supervised so that he won’t lick the teeny tiny little spot that hasn’t quite healed yet. So I’m guessing he’ll wear it at night, like the neck pillow that it is, so that I don’t have to listen for licking sounds in my sleep. Sprocket has no problem with change, but I do. I can’t keep my eyes on him when he is loose in the wilderness of the Miao House, and it makes me anxious. Sans collar, he can squeeze into incredibly small places. What if he finds a mouse hole and gets lost in the walls? What if, in his explorations, he is abducted by malcontent mousies who tie him up and try to make roly-poly pudding?
So far, he hasn’t posed much of a threat to the Miao Brothers, whose napping spots are all out of his reach. Poor Sprock.
He celebrated his new freedom by sprocketting around the house, running up the back stairs and down the front stairs a couple times and scavenging up leftover breakfast. Then we retreated to his room, with Chun, for some quiet time.
When he is not playing, he is bathing. He has a lot of bathing to catch up on.
In other news, he weighs 4lbs now – almost doubled since August!
