Ok guys, I need a bit of help. For the past 4to 6ish months I have been battling against Ivan and his "happy" tail. NO idea why anyone would call it happy tail, its anything but. Short of cutting the last 2 inches off his tail, what can I do? The worst part is it starts to heal, gets down to the size of a pencil lead and we start all over. Right now I have been covering it, for as long as he will leave it on. Sometimes he leaves it on and sometimes he doesn't. It doesn't seem to bother him any, but its bothering me. Could I put new skin on it? Would that help it? I wanted to add, hes getting pretty touchy about me messing with his tail. So the more I can do with the less touching it, the better.
