Misty, with scratchy spells

A few month ago one of our cats Misty came in with what looked like a bite or something on her leg, we thought nothing of it and left it at that. A few weeks later it looked like the wound was getting bigger so we took her to the vets, we were told it looked like she had been in a fight and were given some antibiotics to give her. Have you ever tried to give a cat a tablet? Its not easy, in the end we ended up crushing the tablet and mixing it in with some food.

Ever had one of those moments where you just cant think of a snappy title for a post? This is one of them.

This is Misty in her indoor position, she might look like a cute bundle of kitty cat but she`s not as the local mice and birds will agree. The photo is an old photo befor she was wounded, I have tried to get a picture of her in her collar but she is wise to me and hides every time I point a camera at her.

The antibiotics didnt seem to work so two weeks ago we took her back to the vets, her wound was getting bigger and looked infected. 10 minutes later and just over £50 poorer we left the vets with some surgical was for the cat, who was and still is wearing a plastic collar to stop her reinfecting her leg. If that was not bad enough she has been grounded untill her leg has healed.

At the moment it is taking two of us to clean her leg, me holding her down while my wife does the cleaning. We have been doing this now for about a week and a half  and I have to admit her wound is looking a hell of a lot better.We have to go back to the vets on Friday, with any luck there will be no charge and we will be able to take the collar off Misty,  will let you know.

Im going to try and get a photo of her in her collar later today so you can see how she looks.

I have it so good..

Let me give you a quick update before I start, trying he kitchen? It's still being put together, we just need the kitchen units fastened...
