This damn cat! He's been limping the past week or so. No injuries, all the bones in the right place. Maybe he twisted an ankle trying to catch a butterfly, right? Wrong! His freaking chest exploded last night! Right under his armpit. He apparently had another recent abcess. I couldn't see or feel any swelling. Now I can. It's draining good, so he's back to daily wet rub downs.

He is lucky to have you. Is this from the same fight or a new injury?

It must be a new injury. He came in two weeks ago limping. No blood, no nothing. Nothing was broken, I assumed he twisted his ankle. He was favoring the paw more than the leg or shoulder. Nothing swelled up at all, until he came in dripping!

And boy! He made sure I knew he was dripping! The abcess came out the front of his chest, and it is swollen right under his armpit.

I know the boy is about to drive me nuts!

I think he has little big man disease. For being his age, he is a tiny boy. Barely 7 pounds. (yes, that's tiny around here! we grow em big in Texas!) He normally stays away from any other animals and stays in my back yard shed most of the time
