Yesterday I was medicating a cat at the shelter. He's about 10 and has always been a super sweet guy! I love this cat and would actually love to take him home if I could. He scratched one of the other volunteers in the hand and I thought he did it accidently. I thought no way Ricky is way too sweet to do that on purpose. I had him on top of a cage trying to get the pill in and about the 3rd or 4th time I tried he reached out & swiped at me. He caught me just above the lip & a tiny bit in the lip. I've been caught in the cheek by my Jordan, but man that was nothing compared to this. First of all he needs his claws clipped and I keep Jordan's claws preety short. It actually made my eye water on that side of my face. I thought it would swell up, but it didn't. I'm curious to know how many other people have been clawed in the face. I was supprised by him, but I still love him. I know if someone was trying to shove a pill down my throat I'd be angry too!
