Target Has A War Wound
Au was so loud and so fast and so vicious that the grey cat rushed out of the house as fast as his paws could carry him.
He was in such a rush that he ran straight over the top of Target who was running to Au's rescue.
In his haste, the gray cat must have scratched Target's cheek.
This morning Target was fine but as 11AM his cheek felt hot. By 2PM I had him in the vet. His surgeon says he's never seen such a young abscess, and that it's nothing to worry about.
Target was supremely brave while his cheek was shaved and his abscess lanced and so was I.
We're now back at home. Target is asleep in bed and I am about to have the largest drink in the entire universe.
I'm brave at the vet's because my fur friend needs me to be a cool calm rock in his time of need, but between you and me, the whole thing makes me sick with fear and nerves.
Purr for Target please, and if you've some spare, purr for me too!
