So good to hear the news! And I know you know where the Midland Farm and home store is - they have GREAT prices on vetwrap. Good enough prices that you can afford to try to mummify your college roommate LOL while in college. (Hey it was a bad idea but then again most all-nighter ideas are in college).

Chuckles Update:
Well he managed to chew the straps of his ejacket and get out of it. I repaired it and put it back on. He was back out of it again in less then 10 hours. He hasn't messed with the contraption on his tail so this time I'm just keeping an eye on him. If he continues not to mess with it I won't put it back on.

I have a photo of him to show everyone how well he is doing at this point. It was taken after his first escape and before he got out of it again. Check out the shot where he is standing on his back legs eating. I had to get a picture of that. LOL

Chuckles Update:
Chuckles has not messed with the contraption on his tail so is not back in the ecollar. But he is under constant supervision. Today was his last day of antibioatics so just pain meds. Tip looks great just a small scab and the stitches. Stitches come out on Friday so we'll see what doc thinks at that time. Contraption will need to stay in place until the scab falls off and may need to stay in place until the hair is at least half way grown in but doc will decide that. So another good overall report. YAY!!!

shock Do you mean to tell me that your little so-and-so chewed through the Velboa straps? (but then again, they WERE only single thickness weren't they?) I see that in the pics the straps were made of fleece...which we now realize are too easily stetched with time and all that...

Just do me a favor: DO NOT let Chuckles ever meet up with Cora's little Spencer, OK? thumb If both of those devious little minds ever got together...... shakehead

Denise he got thru the fleece straps. I hadn't put on the remake version with the Velboa straps as the orginial was in good shape and to that point he hadn't gotten out of it. But as he showed us he is a very determined little guy. After a talking to from mommy in which he was told if he left his tail contraption alone I'd not put on the new ejacket. 2 days and running he's kept his end of the bargin so I haven't put an ejacket back on. You can be sure I have the new ejacket handy if I need to but so far he's being good. Stinker isn't giving me the chance to test version 2. But as long as he's good I'll keep my bargin too. I'll be sure not to give him and Spencer time to chat as between the 2 of them we'd have serious escape attempts going on. LOL Chuck can't believe just how smart Chuckles is and how sly. Chuckles never made attampts to chew the straps when we were there to see him. Apparentlly he was hard at work everytime we turned our back.

I did learn that even if they stay in an ecollar or jacket for a few days that doesn't mean they won't figure a way out eventually so they have to be under supervision throughout their entire stay in them.

I wonder if bitter apple would deter their chewing on the straps. I spay that on the straps to my one parrots flight suit, she has a little tuxedo that she wears to the bark and wine event at the humane society every year.

Whoa whoa whoa Jessica! While that might be a "quick fix" to a problem, it'll come zinging back in your face come the long run! shakehead They'll only become "accustomed" to the flavor & when you NEED it to deter them....it won't.

Chuckles Update:
Chuckles tail is looking much better. It has a scab that is being stubborn and won't fall off. It has peach fuzz coming back in. The contraption is still in place and he's not trying to chew on it. The contraption has worked wonders in keeping him away from his tail tip. Everytime I check it it's dry inside, which was one of our major concerns with the device. Chuck modified the original version and now I don't have to pull off the tape on his tail everytime I check and flush the tip. Prior to the upgrade I had to get the tape off to treat the site. Needless to say my heart hurt for the pain the removing the tape caused Chuckles. Now the piece I remove is tape to another piece that is taped on his tail. So I only need to remove the tape that doesn't stick to his hair. I'll only need to remove that tape when it's time to remove the contraption for good. So far the contraption has been a success. When it is completely removed for the last time I'll reveal the product Chuck can up with. However, when I do I'll also state that it must be udes in cunjunction with the ejacket made by Denise and can NOT be used alone due to gliders wanting it off and the ejacket preventing them to take it off. I'll also advise that the glider wearing it be under constant supervision.

Sorry folks no photos updates today. But wanted to say Chuckles is doing good today. Can't wait to get him to the vet's office on Friday to have the stitches removed.

Hi, Elena! I just wanted to let you know that our family is thinking of you today and praying for little Chuckles! Having been in a similar situation with one of our own, I fully understand how heartbreaking this is for you. Please know that both you and Chuckles are, and will continue to be, in our thoughts and prayers. -Alicia

I also wanted to quickly add that we have always had Wodents (with safety guards) in all of our habitats but, because of Chuckles, will be upgrading everyone to a safer exercise wheel! Now, if only I could decide which one (TGI, CC, or Stealth ... hmmmm!)! -Alicia

Chuckles is doing great. Doc took his stitches out today. She was very pleased with his healing. She wants the contraption to stay in place until his hair has grown to half it normal length. Says less chance of his overgrooming the area. That's fine with me and Chuckles has grown so used to it that I'm betting that he'll wonder where it went when it is time to take it off. LOL Well likely he'll be thrilled but really it just doesn't seem to bother him. I'm so happy for my wee one. smile

Denise remember back when I asked you to test drive the ejacket? I said that my main goal with it was to keep him away from his contraption. Well it did the job perfectly! Chuckles was so distracted with the ejacket that he just grew accostomed to the tail "E Tip".<-- What do you think? Thanks a bunch Denise from the bottom of my heart and Chuckles' too! mlove


Thank you everyone for your prayers. There's still more healing time ahead but with the E Tip in place Chuckles has a better chance of healing without mishap.

I wanted everyone to see how Chuckles tail tip looks now. I got this photo last night during his treatment.

Stitches are gone. What you see is the area that getting the stitches out left behind. So a little more healing on those spots.

Chuckles always gets a treat for putting up with his treatments and here he is.

Quick photo update on Chuckles. He's doing great. Haven't been able to take the E Tip off yet as his tip still has scabs. But won't be long now as his hair is almost half the length of the rest of his fur. He's feeling real good as you'll see in the photos below where he is playing with an euc branch.

What Ma?


You're coming with me!

Finally time for another update.
Prayers needed!
The E Tip came off today. Everything looks good underneith it so I thought why not leave it off and see if Chuckles will leave it alone and let it finish healing with better air flow. So it's off and now I watch and pray. I'm asking for prayers that he will leave it alone as he was grooming like crazy for a while. Last I checked on him he was sleeping but as we all know the day time is not when he'll over groom. So pray that he's not interested in over grooming.
