Early morning Wednesday, 2 am. Mom and Dad found me rolled up in the couch's slipcover bleeding profusely from behind! They rushed me to the local Vet ER and I had emergency surgery during the night. The ER Vet said my skin was like Swiss cheese! OUCH! He thinks I may have been biten from behind by one of the other cats. Mom says I could have been injured by "anything". My littermate George does chase me nightly. He could have either bit me or clawed me from behind. Anyway, I appearently had this injury and didn't know it for at least a week when it finally abcessed. My wound had a lot of dead skin around it. The doc couldn't even completely sew me up..I didn't have enough skin!! So, he put a couple drainage tubes in and made "belt loops" with the sutchers for securing the bandage to the "hole" in back. I came home from the ER wearing a most awesome headress along with my bandage. They must appreciate my Greatness! Mom and Dad had to change my gauze twice a day for two days. I finished all my pain meds, and I'll be on Clavamox for a about another week. I also must stay in a "secure" place to I can't be prey for my siblings. The vet tech suggested the bathroom. Mom had a better idea. She got out Liberty's dog crate that she no longer uses. It has a lot of room and it allows me to still be part of the family unit. Today, I went to my regular Vet for my follow up. I got a new bandage that Mom and Dad are to leave on all weekend. She put "special" powder on it to encourage skin growth. I go back on Monday for a recheck of my "ouchie". Unfortunately, I must stay in the dog crate through the weekend! Mom put a mini cat condo inside for me to have an elevated area. She's so considerate!!!
