This is my little princess but at the moment she's not feeling all that well. She got injured about a month ago and I tended her wounds, it was almost healed when I let her out again but sadly she got attacked again and it's been 2 weeks now. Bandaging the wound wasn't all that successful cause she kept licking herself and pushing it off so now i'm trying the cone.
@ Nikki..your babies look so sweet. I wish I could have another one but I can't..it's so hard in this city. As for my little one, I don't think I will let her out again, even though she loves it but she's getting old and there are other predators out there besides other cats and I don't think she can defend herself anymore.
@JavaJoe, wow look at her emerald eyes, gorgeous little girl you got. Why is she sick, what happened to her?
My cat is still recovering, she's quite sad and is not all that active but I think she's doing what she can to recover. I hate to see her like this, but she has no interest to go by the window nor to the balcony. You should see the buffet of foods I've gotten for her but she has very little interest to eat. I'm home tomorrow so I'll take off the cone and she can be more comfortable, closely observing so that she doesn't lick herself and hope this ordeal ends soon.
Consider seeing a vet if the inactivity continues because of the potential for infection. Also, if there was any biting involved, there is the risk of other disease transmissions with symptoms that may manifest years down the road.
For open wounds, I always recommend "Herbal Skin Spray" or "Herbal Skin Ointment" from MontanaEmuRanch.com . It is all natural and very soothing. Irritation is the number one reason a cat or dog will continue to fuss and interrupt / undo the healing process.
And I have close to 50 cats, so ... no photos from me or I will surely break Webmiss's Internets.
