Cat up-date

Yep, Marle's had been in a fight. Or at the very least, someone took a bite at him, and he has a lovely set of teeth marks in his back. (And as horrible as this sounds, as I said to the vet, I hope the animal who bit him is the one he steals food off. Despite being on a diet,and me being very careful with the amount of food he gets Marley has gained weight. Vet today mentioned the possibility of Type 2 diabetes. Man, other than getting a feline treadmill, I"m doing the best I can to help him!!)

So he's on antibiotics twice a day for a week, and once a day I have to inject cream into the wound. For the moment, the vet reckons the wound area will fill after about 3ml. Awesome.

On the plus side, the vet was happy I noticed the abscess so quickly (yep, definitely happened either Saturday night/Sunday sometime) so while it looks bad, it was not as bad as it could be.
