Warning kind of gross----- My little 5 pound Calico Annie-Belle got her Royal heiney kicked! Last week she came in limping. We have had her in ever since. We have been watching her, she laid low and was kind of out of it. Vet said to just watch her. She had a lump on her back. No blood. She started feeling better about 2 days later. Monday morning, I could see blood on the spot were the lump was... She ran out one of the doors and was acting crazy. After we got the girls to school, we finally got her in the house and wrapped her in a towel. I was able to get a good look at it. It had exploded, pus just flowing out, smelly... we figured it was a bite that didn't bleed and had absessed and finally burst. She was crazy, crawling the walls. Spinning, hissing, growling... everytime the pus started leaking it would drive her crazy and she would start hissing more and growling. She was trying to get us to help her, jumping on us, but then would attack us!!! So we called our new vet. We got her in within 1/2 hour. She was crawling their walls. They said luckily she did not bite or scratch anyone or they would have to quarentine her. They said we did the right thing by just watching her, because they would have had to just wait for it to all come out as well but it would have cost more for us. So they found 2 bites on her back, and one on her tummy. So now we have had her in our spare room since Monday, she has 3 drain tubes in her, We are dosing her with lots of pain medications. She has a cute collar on. i feel so bad for her. We take her in THursday. To pull the staples. I have been cleaning the sites which is nice. The girls are doing OK with going in and giving her love. Cost a lot!!! But she is our baby... There goes my fur coat. JK We have a huge feral cat that has been coming around, not fixed! THis makes me so mad!!! He is huge! we also have 2 racoons. But they think it is the cat. Luckily our cats are up to date on everything. She should be fine. We are going to have to keep her sneaky butt in at night more. We try but she gets out sometimes. Poor thing, she looks so pathetic.
