I'm sorry to hear about Mowgli, Nancy. I hate it when one of my furgirls is hurting. Miriam, I hope things work out with your MIL.
Quick, dumb question. I soaked the Redeye outside and wiped off what kerosene I could. Is it safe to bring it in the house? I don't want to start a fire when the furnace comes on. No, I do not currently have an open fire in the fireplace. I know this sounds ignorant, but I don't deal in such things and my son who could tell me is at work. I'd like to bring it in and wipe it with oil. I would think it would be counterproductive to wash it with Dawn. I don't want it to rust.
