I have had an owie under my eye for a while and the Beans have been putting the magic gel on it to clear it up but it wasn't getting any better. On Monday morning I heard mum on the phone while I was eating my breakfast but didn't take any notice until I heard the dreaded V E T mentioned. All seemed normal after that so I didn't take any more notice. Big mistake! Next thing I knew I was being stuffed into the PTU and then into the metal monster.
The V E T said I was a good boy and looked at my owie. He said it was a bacterial skin infection which could have been caused by some injury and asked if I was a fighter. Dad told him that we never came into contact with other cats and Flynn and I never fight apart from playing. When we play we never bite or scratch each other. He said I could have scratched it myself which mum thinks is most likely because she keeps telling me to stop digging my face. Also it could have been caused by a tick which I scratched off myself before they saw it. That is also a strong possibility because I have had lots of ticks at different times, but Flynn never seems to get any.
The V E T said he would give me Auntie's Biotik so I thought I would have some icky medicine, but next thing I knew, the evil V E T stabbed me! He took me by surprise and I didn't even have chance to say meow. I have to go back in two weeks if it is no better. Mum thinks it is starting to look better already.
There was some good news though. He looked at my teefs and said they were very good and I don't need to have them done. That is particularly good news because I have always suffered from tartar build up and red gums ever since I was little. Two or three years ago I had to have three teefs stolen. Dad brushes my teefs every day since then with Logic oral gel so it is obviously working.
The other good news is that I have lost weight. I was 23lbs and now I am 20.5 lbs. Mum gradually took us off our dried food and now we only get Stinky Goodness. I prefer dried food but it doesn't seem likely I will get it again Hmphhh!!!
Mum said I was very good in the PTU because I never said a word all the way to the V E T, and only said two little meows on the way back and it is 30 minutes each way. Last time I went, I hollered all the way there and all the way back again.
