Happy Blue Donut Day!

On Blue Donut Day, we celebrate Sprocket’s graduation from his Blue Donut, which he wore from the day of his surgery for his leg (1 August*) until 19 September, when he was fully healed and didn’t need it any more.

*Actually he wore an impossible cone for a couple days before we got him his Blue Donut.

I asked him how he manages to have such purrfect stripes. He thought it was a silly question.
