So thrilled to hear that he's improving!!!!

I would recommend that if you want to keep him quieter (in an area that you're in) but not in a crate, you might try an x-pen.

I remember when Capri was ill for so long (obstructions w/peritonitis, multiple abdominal surgeries ) I basically covered the floor with a foam mattress and dog beds, gated off the doorways and stairs into that room, and pretty much lived in there with her--slept, ate, read, crocheted and just sat, for probably 6 months or so--I had my laptop, the TV, good books, and the mattress was comfortable. Of course, she wasn't particularly interested in moving around and Kip was getting older too. Tish, our cat at the time, just took advantage of all of the soft surfaces.

And I had the advantage of not working and letting the rest of the family carry the rest of the home managing load--I just had the animals to nurse.

Actually, looking at these pictures, Kip is the one on the big bed in a nightie. Hmmm....I think this picture was actually after he had a lot of lumps removed; he had one that was growing right alongside his sheath threatening to grow into its tissues (as opposed to just under the skin riding on top of the muscle layers) and we took off a few of his other lipomas at the same time.

But the setup was the same when Capri was sick.

I am awfully glad to hear about Titan's improvement. I'll say ditto to MeadowCat's suggestion about using an x-pen to keep him from being too active.

And Mel, I had to laugh at your kitty sleeping in the middle of the dog bed. There is a big Costco dog bed that is favored by the dogs which is right in front of the front window. Because I spend very little time in that room I realized that it is also favored by the cats the last time I had a puppy who was only allowed to be where I was--since I spend most of my time in the kitchen, the computer room (an unused bedroom) and my bedroom I evidently didn't notice that any time there was no dog in that living room bed it always had a cat in it.
