I need some good vibes....

phyllis__mnOctober 9, 2012

I have been taking care of grandson's cat, and have one of my own. Guest cat always attacked mine, but we were handling it OK by separating them. Well, I made the mistake of letting the guest cat in while mine was in the room, so the attack was on. Stupid me tried to grab the attacker, and got bitten. Well, I ended up in ER that night and next morning, getting antibiotic meds. (I'm allergic to penicillin and sulfa). Red streaks started showing up so I had an IV yesterday, will have one today and one tomorrow. It doesn't look any better, so I really need your thoughts and prayers at this time. It's scary. (Guest cat has gone home to grandson!)

Oh dear Phyllis!! Those cat bites are something to be concerned about. It will take some time, but sounds like you're doing the right thing to recover.

Sending good vibes and get well thoughts your way.

Dang, Phyllis, that's one nasty cat. It sure wouldn't be coming back to my house anytime soon. I hope the antibiotics kick in soon and you get feeling better. Bet it scared the daylights out of you! Good thoughts floating north to you.

Sorry for your distress. Thank goodness I'm allergic to cats, so will never have that problem. Hurry up and get well.

Cat bites ARE serious. Hope all turns out fine with you. Despite having 15 cats over the years, I never have been bitten, but I hear it's painful.

I broke up a cat fight when I was in a high school and ended up on IV antibiotics for a week! But it went away without any permanent damage except for a small scar so I know you will be just fine! It just takes a little time so try not to worry too much.

I'm glad you got quick treatment, Phyllis. I got badly attacked some years ago on both my hands, with lots of deep punctures. I didn't realize cat bites carry infection, and waited--almost too long. Scary indeed!

Sending good thoughts and some confidence that you'll be just fine with treatment.

Thinking of you Phyllis and sending healing thoughts. I am glad to hear you went to the ER. I went to the Dr after getting scratched by a cat and I had cat scratch fever. It affected my joints for a long time.

Best of thoughts and greatest of vibes coming your way Phyllis! I wonder, how would they get along if you got them high on catnip?

A good squirt bottle, like a good sized dish soap bottle filled with water works well for breaking up extra curricular activities.
