Jeff, you had an abscess
my cats get them if they get into fights and bites get infected.
If I catch it in time, draining and cleaning with hydrogen peroxide will fix them, if not, it is a costly visit to the vet and lots of struggling with the pill popper device designed to drop the antibiotic pill past the corner of the back of the tongue, easier said than done.
liquid is easier but still a scratchy battle!
Your probably correct, I was in more pain and on more meds than I thought. Cecile was not happy when I woke up just a bit ago. It seems I acted very childish and did not want him to mess with my back last night, I don’t recall being a butt head about it. He just changed the bandage, said it looks much much better. My temp is still up just a bit, just a point or so. It’s still his call if I will have to go see Dr. Allon tomorrow or not, I’m hoping not. My head feels like I was OD’ed on pain killers, well not OD’ed just way more than normal. I’m gonna be a good boy and sit quietly in my room and play nice today. The old man can be a arse when I’m a pain in his.
