The cat is back to his usual perky self — it is truly amazing and wonderful how well he has recovered. But he still has a lot of bare patches on his body, so he’s only allowed out when wearing his hoodie, since the weather is now very cold. He reacts to the hoodie roughly the way a toddler reacts to mittens — if you leave him inside for more than 30 seconds with the hoodie on, he wriggles around and rubs up against corners until he gets it off. But if you get him outside right away, he’s so focused on exploring and enjoying the outdoors that he doesn’t really mind it.
(For the record, if anyone is considering buying a similar hoodie for their cat, this is a size large and the cat weighs around 11 pounds. It’s slightly loose around the leg holes, but anything smaller would probably be too snug in the belly.)
