Buddy

I forgot to tell you what I had to do yesterday. I had to take care of my Buddy. He was hurt and I had to take him to the vet. His poor face was swollen up on one side and he had blood coming out of his eyes and nose. I could see a place on the side of his face. I just knew he had been shot with a pellet rifle or something. I was afraid that he would lose his eye. That was his good eye. The other one is crossed. I got him to the vet and he did ok until they tried to take his temp! He went nuts! Poor thing. He had a 105 temp. Well the vet checked him out and said that he had been bit by a cat. I was relieved to here that. Next he said that he needed to be sedated so he could lance the place so it could drain. I popped up and asked well can he get fixed at the same time. He said I was just going to ask you that. So my Buddy goes in with a sore face and comes out hurting all over. He has forgiven me except when I have to give him his medicine. He is still having trouble walking. His balance is a bit off, he is walking stiff legged. Poor baby.

  2. Oh poor little Buddy.  Yes, cat bites usually cause an abscess in other animals and even on each other.  Give him lots of love and cuddles and a special one from me. xxxx

  6. Poor thing.  I just got my cat back Wednesday for the very same situation!  He was attacked by another cat and I decided, hey...while we're here...  His "site" is healing just fine, but we may end up back at the vet's with the bite.   Have a Happy 4th!                C.

  11. Poor Buddy, I used to have a cat who always came home with cat bites.  She was given antibiotics each time but she still went looking for fights.  She always recovered well though it cost me a lot of money in Vet`s fees!  I`m sure he`ll be much better soon.  :-)
