Bullet

The kitty has quite a wound on his shoulder. He is being anesthetized, cleaned up, and sewn up today.

Sometimes I think I am too quick to bring the kitties to the vet, but it is really hard for me to tell how extensive their injuries are. This time I was justified.

Oh, give the kitty a kiss for me.
I think that if it's to the point where you notice a problem, it's not being overly cautious to bring them in because they can't tell you where they hurt.

That's true, of course. And it is always difficult for me to tell what is going on inside the skin, if there is an abscess developing, for example.

I get him back today. He spent the night at the vet's, which I am sure he really really hated. I look forward to putting pills in him for a week...NOT! (He's a tough kitty and doesn't like me fooling with his mouth.)

I read something a while back about a research project on the healing effects of purring. There was a conclusion that purring can help healing, that the vibration somehow stimulates it. I thought of this when I realized how Bullet was purring when I was combing him out, before I discovered the injury. I also remember another cat who was badly hurt when hit by a car, who lay in a box purring. It was the purring that spurred me on to find serious help for the boy! He hadn't given up so why should I?
