    My panther kitteh is going to be fine!

    We took him to the vet near my parents yesterday morning, and he got a whopping shot of penicillin for the infection from scratching so much, prednisone pill every other day, antibiotic pill every day, antihistamine every other day (days when no prednisone), medicated shampoo twice a week and medicated skin conditioner once a week.

    He was mad at Mommy last night because first husband and I bathed him then I jammed 2 pills down his throat.

    Thanks everyone for the input!

    My kitty cat Lily just got over having a bad skin infection. She was given a steroid shot and we had to give her antibiotics and another medication every day. My poor difficult child had the job of holding her down while I administered the medications. She ended up getting scratched up and for awhile Lily would hiss every time we came near because she just assumed we were giving her the medications. I don't envy you right now, but glad to hear the little kitty is going to be okay!
