Grub under cat's skin?
I can't explain it. I was petting my cat yesterday, and I found his right flank was sore right up by where the tail joins the spine. I looked and just saw what appeared to be a scab, perhaps from a play-fight with my other cat (neither are declawed). They usually go till one squeals and then they let go.
The other possibility is a fight with a big grey stray that comes around. I've tried scaring it off, but it keeps coming back.
Today I checked and its open. A hole, about the size of a Q-tip. I put hydrogen peroxide on it with a Q-tip to clean it out, and it would probably go inside. There was a bit of puss inside. I also poured some peroxide in the wound, and it seems to be quite deep, possible going over the spine.
He seemed sicker yesterday and better today, mood wise.
I'm thinking some kind of grub or something. I had a grub removed from his face last year but that wasn't an open wound.
Anyone eles seen anything like this?
BTW: I am taking the cat to the vet tomorrow morning most likely.
