Dodgy foot

Cagney has injured his foot again. 

I noticed, as he has been holding it up quite a bit.  It is not as bad as the last time as he does not appear to be limping, at least his limp is very, very slight.  Unfortunately, like last time, he has developed a pressure sore on his good foot from having to rest his dodgy foot more.

Shortly after I took the photo below of his sore, I managed to discreetly dab a bit of savlon on via a cotton bud, through the landing platform, whilst he was distracted by the tasty cucumber.  I am not sure it will have done much good as he then toddled off & the cream was then smeared over the perches…

Holding up dodgy left foot

Today he has been holding his dodgy foot up but curled up & tucked into his feathers so I am hoping it is already on the mend.
