Twig is sick...

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Actually he has something wrong with his tail. We came home from the new house tonight and he seems to have an abcess or something like it on his tail and it doesn't look like a cat bite or anything of the sort.
It's icky and infected and I called the after hours vet and they said to put a warm compress on it and bring him in in the morning. I'm freaking out. I knew all day there was something wrong with him. But we were busy with the closing on the house and running all day so I didn't get a chance to really check him out until tonight but all day it was eating away at me. I am a horrible mom and I feel terrible. How could this happen? I don't let them out and there aren't two cuts so it doesn't seem like a cat bite. I can't think of anyway it could happen.

Please some vibes he'll be ok? I'm stressed out and so worried.

Poor Twig! Sending lots and lots of good vibes his way
It's not your fault, so be easy on yourself Sounds like maybe he got smacked by one of your other kitties and it got infected. Hopefully antibiotics will clear it up.

Aww poor little Twig! Cats can get up to all sorts of things and do themselves a damage... he could have gotten a tiny cut that got infected while he was playing around one night. It's easy done - you're not a bad meowmy at all. The vet will get him all fixed up again good as new in no time! Special hugs for your twiggyboy too

Twig update:
The vet said it looked like a cat bite but it was only one tooth that got him that she could see.(it was the vet I don't care for but I needed to get Twig in asap so I had no choice in seeing her) She opened it up to make sure it drained out and the yucky stuff was all out of it, and gave him some antibiotics.
He was NOT a happy camper. Yeowling and screaming until they were done. I was crying, because he seemed to be in so much pain. I took him home and put him in the bedroom and closed the door so he could relax (and not take out his pain on the other cats) and he was fine by the time DH got home.
I'm ok now. I have to give him his meds today but I am going to wait until after I get off work to make sure he doesn't throw them up.

Thanks for the support. I needed it. My poor baby. I feel like I let him down.

Poor baby. His tail is still oozing yucky stuff and he won't let us clean it without a fight. He took his pills without a problem tonight so at least I know he's getting the antibiotics he needs to fight the infection in his tail.

You guys are the best! It's nice to know that others understand how horrible I feel when one of my cats is hurt or sick.
Twig's tail is so sore. I wish I could do something to take the pain away. But he's a trooper and still goes in the box, and is taking his pills very well. I hope he heals soon enough.

Awww Barb, might just have been someone playing with him and got a tooth caught on his tail.... don't got blaming yourself either, accidents happen.

Another update.

Twig is going back to the vet Tues.
His tail isn't healing and is still really sore and oozing yucky stuff.
I feel so terrible and don't want to have to take him because they are going to hurt him again and I know I'm going to cry again.
We tried to put warm compresses on his tail like they said to do but it hurts him so much we can't get him to sit still long enough for anything to come of it.
I am so worried about him. He's just not right and I know it's only been three days but still, he should show SOME sign of improvement by now don't you think?
UGH! I wish I could magically make him better.

I think his meowmy already has had one and is well on her way to another one.
I got called into work this morning so I have to work until 8:30. come home, get him, go to the vet, drop him back home, and go back to work until 5 or 7. What a horrible day it is already.. I just hope the vet makes him all better then this day won't be totally shot.
