A tail of woe

IMG_0139

Oscar – Maine Coon #2 – was a little off-colour yesterday.

He was just lying around looking wistful and didn’t seem to want to play with his feathery stick or thug up birds in the garden.

We gave him the once-over and found a lump just beneath the root of his tail.

I looked at it and found some bitemarks.

‘Ah ha…an abscess,’ I thought.

So, sure enough, this morning after a quick phonecall and a trip over to our excellent vet, Oscar got his abscess drained, a thermometer up his arse, a painkiller injection, a shot of Amoxycillin and some pills to take for the next five days.

He seems brighter, which is good news.
