It's true that Landy pierced my left ear! And no, Mommy isn't letting me wear one of her gold earrings!
It happened like this:
Earlier in the week, Landy and I got into a nasty altercation. It took place while Mommy was awake and her alarm for 6:00 a.m. didn't go off yet. We fought and I pinned Landy down and I wouldn't let him go. He then bit me on my left ear! It hurt like crazy and I let out a loud screeching meow. Mommy got out of bed and found Landy and I with our fur standing on end and balls of my black fur coating the hallway rug. She also found some dewclaws from us (this happens after nasty fights). Mommy told me she thought of the bad fights that Bail and Yingy got into a couple of times.
Anyway, She looked at both of us and saw no wounds but a bald spot on my left ear. She thought Landy scratched my ear and pulled some fur out. A couple of days went by and on Friday, my left ear had a scab on the front and back of it. She then called the vet and set up an appointment for me.
The vet cleaned my poor ear with an antiseptic and the scab fell off. She said the would was a bite and she believes it went all the way through (piercing) and had healed shut on the back portion because she couldn't see all the way through the hole. I was prescribed Clavamox 1 and 1/2 pills twice a day for a week, and also some ointment to put on my ear twice a day for one week.
My ear is looking better already. Also, it doesn't hurt as much as it did. Mommy told me she was very proud of me as I take my pills in a pill pocket like a mancat. I also let her put the ointment on my ear with no problems.
As to poor Sampy, he has a messed up eye and accompanied me to the vet the very same day. He needs ointment in his right eye twice a day for a week.
What a CATastrophy! It cost Mommy a whole bunch of money to take care of this too.
Question: Does anybody want Landy! I'll be the first to boot him out of the house if he tries to pierce my ear again!!
Anyway, this is a learning experience for me to never, ever pin down Landy as he BITES!!
I hope everycat had a better week than I did. Hopefully, the rest of December will be good around here.
Purrs & Breeps,

Better behave.....Santa's watching!
Too bad your mom won't share her earrings. A gold hoop would be AWESOME!
