Whitey Wound


Sweet Pea here.
I have some disturbing news to report--I almost vent to the vet!
See how my fur is a little manky behind my ear?  I had an abscess that I didn't tell anyone about which drained.

Last week Mommy noticed that I was glued to the sofa for a couple of days (not my usual spot), and that my eye was a little runny.  She told Daddy that I was perhaps due for an Unpleasant Excursion if I didn't perk up.  Well the next day I was all crusty and gooey behind me ear and right away they knew what had been going on.  It's hard to say how I got punctured; I wrassle with several of my housemates daily and we are a pretty rough-and-tumble bunch when we play.

I was back to my usual sunny purrsonality as soon as I got cleaned up (thank you Daddy!), and Mommy put a warm compress on my ear off and on for two days to hiss me off encourage it to heal.

My other ear is just fine...

All the better to discharge my Guard Duty:
Making sure that this Cat Grass is eaten responsibly!
We all have been producing some spectacular green yaks...everywhere.

Happy REAL Caturday!

  1. I'm glad that cleared up without a vet visit! Although Binga and Boodie play rough, it hasn't resulted in any unwanted trips to the clinic.

  2. I am very glad that it wasn't too serious. Keep on yakkin'

  3. Phew - we are glad it's sorted without a trip to you-know-where. We trust there will be kitties to wash it better too. Happy Saturday!

  4. Sorry to hear about your wound but glad it is getting better.

  5. Jeepers, Sweet Pea, we're all glad your mom and dad were able to take care of this and that you didn't have to make an Unpleasant Excursion. (Love how you phrase it.)

    We hope you're all well; the biped hasn't been blogging for us or keeping up with everyone, either.

    Tell your mom thank you for stopping by the human's blog....and yes, it seems that staycations mean doing all the chores and tasks that you don't have time to do on a regular basis.

    Purrs and peace,
    Nicki and Derry

  6. We are glad you were able to avoid the Stabby Place. Be careful of your pretty ears in future though.

  7. How brave you were keeping it to yourself, it must have been a bit painful. Glad you're all better now.

  8. Sounds like you dodged that Vet visit ;) whew!
    Good to hear you are back to normal now.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  9. Yikes, that was a close call, Whitey! Glad to hear all is better and you're no longer wet behind the ear. MOL!

  10. Phew, that was a close call Sweet Pea! We is glad it healed up on with a little help from the beans.

    Enjoy the cat grass, it looks delish!
    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  11. Well, I'm glad that was all that was wrong and it is quickly rectified. I'm sure that hurt like the dickens. Poor kitty!

  12. Dang, we are sure glad the all better came and found you!

  13. My poor Sweet Pea! You are so brave to soldier on with that terrible wound and not a word of complaint. If you had let me know I would have rushed to your side to administer to your every need. I am glad you recovered without an Unpleasant Excursion.

  14. We're glad it was not too serious and that you recovered so quick ! Purrs

  15. Yup - the battle scars of a multi-cat household! Glad you are okay! Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey Gang

  17. Sweet Pea, you're so lucky that your mommy and daddy knew just what to do and you didn't have to go to the vet! I'm glad that all is well now.

    You are so lucky you have all that yummy grass. I love to yak that stuff up!

  18. We are so glad to hear you didn't have to go to the vet and your abscess is healing up!

  21. We're so glad you were able to get cleaned up without a vet visit. Happy Caturday!

  22. So glad you were able to avoid the evil vet!

    Waffles had an abscess when Glogirly adopted him. Something about a shelter scuffle.
    Always the trouble maker. ; )

  23. Whew! Thank cod your peeps knew what to do to help you, Sweet Pea so you could avoid the evil vet. We hope you heal fast.

  24. Glad you are feeling better. We have some white cat grass- it doesn't stain when they yack it up :)

  25. Dang, that was a close one, Sweet Pea! We sure are glad you did not have to go the vet. ::shudders::

  26. We're so glad it was NOT V-E-T worthy and that you're all better now!

  27. Well now this is interesting, you had an abscess and you got away without going to the vet?? I thought those always needed antibiotics.. did you do anything other than let it drain and the compress?


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
