Guess what happened this morning?
The Boy noticed that Zuri was still able to bring his leg forward. And what more, this time he had a way to keep it up with minimum effort. The extension the Boy made didn't go high enough and cut squarely, so Zuri figured out he could use it as a ledge to prop up his leg on. So this morning I made yet another small adjustment, bringing the extra bit higher and making it finish more closely to the actual collar. So far, he's not been able to reach his foot. And the collar is now so big at the bottom that he can just barely turn around in his temporary cage, which means there is little place to do any type of acrobatic movement to reach his leg.
Maybe this will be good for the plastic collar?
But of course it doesn't end there.
Probably frustrated by this new attempt to foil his plan to reach his bandaged foot, he's now started to chew at the turtleneck collar. Which I much prefer to his attempts to chew the bandages off his injured foot.
