Oscar the Grouch was found in a trash can earlier today. Not only did he stink to high heaven but his right eye was not in its socket. It's not a recent injury but it's not one that's healed fully or properly. Gangrene is setting in (another reason he stinks). He was rushed to our vet where he is receiving medical attention. The extent of his injuries is not quite fully known yet. He's getting blood work (and a bath!) and will soon have surgery to repair his ocular cavity. He will recuperate in Foster care.
Oscar would like to point out that he's not grouchy. He's actually taking his ordeal in stride. He's being a good little patient and even put up with a bath and being poked and prodded by the vet. He's keeping his spirits up and is particularly happy to not be living in a trash can anymore.
