Update on the Pirate Duke

All is not quite right with our warren. The temperatures are in the 80's and 90's F, and life is returning to our nightly routine. All except my very own Pirate Duke Bunko. Bunks has had some gas issues for the last week. We went to the vet and found no blockages or twists in the digestive system. So my Bunko is on meds twice daily for four days. It's been two days and he seems better tonight. Oddly enough my little piglet that never seems to stop begging has lost weight. I am having to try to tempt him with herbs, treats and critical care. That is actually a joke, Bunko *hates* critical care. I finally bought apple juice and baby food to mix in to get him to take a few bites. Silly boy, he just needs to eat more. I never thought I'd have that problem...
This is the view I am getting most often. He seems to have a real problem with Mom checking the litter box everytime he hops out.

A view of his pirate fur patch. The eye socket has healed beautifully and you can only tell it's an empty socket if you really look.  Looks like my weekend is planned - all eyes on litter boxes. haha! Hope your weekend is excellent.
