Othello had a vet appointment last night for his yearly shots.
In the process of attempting to place one (1) cat with twenty (20) claws into one (1) cat carrier, I obtained the following wounds:
Left leg below the knee:
(the redness at the bottom was just from sitting on the edge of my skirt – it’s not another wound)
Left leg above the knee:
Deep puncture wound on right upper arm:
(which has now blossomed into a lovely Kennedy half-dollar sized bruise)
Torn cartilage piercing:
(I also have a 3″ long scratch in my scalp, near the torn piercing)
And then when I undressed for a nice relaxing pre-bed shower, I discovered:
Scratches and puncture wound on my upper chest. (Aren’t you glad I cropped that picture? :-P)
There’s also another puncture wound on my left shoulder that I couldn’t get a picture of. Then this morning I discovered another wound, a nice gash along my left wrist. No picture of it either.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering? We didn’t make it to the vet last night.
Next time we’re using one who makes house calls.
