ApacheKat made a late night run to the kitty emergency room a few nights ago. This is how she came home on Tuesday afternoon. Pressure wrapped from her front legs to her back legs. She was tired and hungry. We got her fed, loved on and this is where she ended up. On the bed sleeping on my sweater. (Shame on me for not hanging it up!)
Ernie carried her to the vet yesterday to have the bandages removed. The place that was the problem was healed. Vet thought she might have nicked an artery in her chewing off the scab. Great, huh? Anyhow, when they undid the pressure wrap, they pulled off a few more scabs and pulled out clumps of fur where it had stuck…she was not a happy camper. She looks so ratty and moth eaten now. But…she’s walking good and eating like a piggy. Guess there’s a trade off. They gave her another brand new antibiotic that’s for skin infections and a steroid injection. I’m still giving her the vitamins with her evening food.
Maybe we’ll see more improvement as the meds do their thing.
