Blondie and a rattlesnake tangled Sunday night late…we were at the vet by midnight. I just brought one very lucky little kitty home this evening.
I think he looks pretty happy. He’s only 1 year and 3 days old….and very, very lucky according to the vet.
He’ll be on antibiotics for 10 days, and hopefully, he’ll leave the snakes alone.
His leg and foot look much better today. The uppermost spots on his leg are fang marks. There is substantial blood bruising on his paw. The foot was swollen as tight as the skin would go by the time we got to the vet.
Blondie is the second of our kitties to tangle with slithery serpents. Muckley got bit by a copperhead a year or so ago. Ernie found that one and blew it to kingdom come. We haven’t found the rattler yet. He did spend all day yesterday looking for it though. Now, we’re carrying the 410 everywhere…wanting the snake to show it’s self.
