MyKia's Boo Boo

MyKia had a run in with another cat that didn't have much of a Christmas spirit at all. He bit into MyKia's upper side pretty bad. It swelled up to the size of a baseball 3 days ago and I had to lance it. I am glad I confined ourselves to the bathroom when I did it because at least a cup of the vilest toxins I had ever seen or smelled poured out of the wound. Afterwards, I cut all the hair from around his wound & cleaned it out with warm water & peroxide. Then I made a poultice with a cream with antibiotics in it. Now I am giving him oral antibiotics and then baby Bayer aspirin for the pain. Today is the first day he was actually up and wanting to go outside.
Akasha never once left his side. They are so attached to each other, I have never seen that kind of love in any of my pets for each other. Not since PyWakkete and AbaSara, two chocolate Siamese I had years ago. PyWakkette mourned her for month's when she passed away before he did.
Be assured that MyKia is well onto the road to recovery.
