Scarlett Update

There was a comment on this post asking whether Scarlett's acne has cleared up. The answer is that yes, it is very nearly gone. I ran out of the medicated pads from the vet a little while back and, per Rene's suggestion, have been swabbing the affected area with Hibiclens daily since then. I need to shampoo Scarlett's neck and chin to get rid of the remaining discoloration, but I think she'll be acne-free in about a week or so. I plan on continuing to use the Hibiclens at least a few times a week after that to make sure the acne stays gone.

You can see Scarlett's chin a little bit in this picture:

"Ooh, big fishies..."
(She is watching Shark Week.)

"Stop taking pictures of me."

Hi Scarlett we are so glad that your chin acne is clearing up. I remember having it with our oldest three - two cleared up fairly soon but Floyds lasted forever (but he was sick too, so that made it hard to clear up). But we are glad yours seems to be on the mend! We are still purring for it! You do look very cute in your pictures - we can't even tell you have it!

We also wanted to let you know we have you as one of our Friends on Friday today!!
