Sad cat

Just wanted to let you know that your Mooky-love is extra appreciated today, as the Mook is feeling blue. He was beat up last night and has been sleeping on his flying carpet ever since. He suffered a few cuts on his nose and around one eye; he came in bleeding and is now just swollen and oozing. Sigh. It's only about a 2.5 on the Digit-o-meter Feline Injury Scale™, but it's still upsetting. We decided not to take him to the vet today, since he hates the car so much, and I don't think he needs any extra stress. I pried open his swollen-shut eye and I can tell that he can see with it, so I'm just going to let him sleep. He has antibiotics left from his last fight, so we're giving him those; of course, if his eye gets worse, we'll go to the vet tomorrow.

Sigh.

Oh, poor Mooky! There are some real thugs out there. My two sweeties also hate car trips; I can understand your not wanting to inflict that on Mooky.

Oh, poor cher Mooky! Here's hoping you feel better, with no infection or serious damage. We know you're tough. Just don't worry your mama so...

Laiane said...

Get well soon, Mooky! Lots of sleep and treats will help you mend.

Oh no! Feel better Mooky!

Oh no! Poor Mooky. I'm sending healing thoughts his way. My little Capricha got a nasty scratch to the eye in a catfight a while ago, and antibiotics cleared it right up.

caro said...

Aw, poor Mooky. Flying carpets have healing powers, don't they?

chris said...

jennie said...

oh! Hank and Phoebe (my black kitties) send along their well wishes, and their thankfulness that although they stare longingly at the outside and make their mommy feel guilty that she keeps them in the house, they might secretly be glad that they are indoor cats.
Wishes for a speedy, vet-free recovery!

Poor fella.

I had a cat that got an infected rear leg. Antibiotics weren't enough since the wound wasn't staying clean due to kitty litter. We used to wash her leg with warm sea-salt water, and finish it off with a dose of hydrogen peroxide poured right on. I did the trick and she healed up nicely.

But I can't say that she appreciated our nursing all that much.

Oh no! Poor Mooky! I'm sending him get well wishes and scratches behind the ears.

Rachael said...

Ohhhh. Digit sends love and says you should see what the OTHER guy looks like. I hate that -- when they sleep for two days without even moving, while they recover.....

JustApril said...

Poor little guy. Keeping him inside sounds like the best thing to do. Hope he is better soon.
