Mini Mancat Monday: Panther's owie eye!
I have an owie in my eye! It really hurts! Foster Mommy has to drop some medicine in it every 6 hours, which makes it hurt more for a few minutes then makes it feel better for a while. Boy, does it ever sting when the drops go in! The first few times, I didn't want to move my third eyelid for her, but then I started to notice that it helped if my eye was open more. Now I keep my eye open enough so the drops can coat it. I also have some oral medicine that I have no problem taking, because it makes the pain go away for a while and also makes me sleepy. I get that one at night.
When my foster purrents took me to the vet, I cried the whole way there and back. I hate car rides, and hate being confined to that carrier! I told the receptionist all about it when we got to the vet, so she got us into a small room faster. Then, I was able to get out and walk around, although I spent most of the time under Foster Mommy's chair or within petting distance of Foster Daddy. The vet had to take me into the larger room in the back to put some stuff in my eye so she could see what was going on. She thinks it's some kind of an infection, so we're all hoping it goes away with the normal eye medication.
But, she said I can't go outside until two weeks from now! That's 14 days without checking out my territory! I've never been gone from it this long since I found it. What if another cat takes over? I want to go out and explore, but my foster purrents say it's doctor's orders that I stay inside so they can give me my medicine when they're supposed to. Phooey to them! Crying at the door doesn't help, and looking sad and cute doesn't help, either. At least I'm a good boy about using the box every time, now that I've figured it out. I still don't cover my poop, but Uncle Heimdall hops in after me and covers it for me most of the time.
By the way, if you missed the book launch party for Three Feral Kittens, you can still check out all the links and information on the website!
