Update on Franken’kitty

20160110_102434

My poor little Magpie aka “Franken’kitty” He’s really going through things at the moment. We took him back to the vets a week ago and this was the last time we got to see him. The infection had really taken hold in the wound area causing all the skin around the stitches to break down. this meant the original stitches needed to be removed they had to then remove all the damaged skin and he has been kept in a sterile environment while the infection heals.

Once inside he was whisked away into the back treatment room and we were left to go home with empty arms. Knowing he would be staying in over night and was in the best place didn’t help me stop worrying. He’s my baby boy and he should have been at home sleeping on my lap.  Continue reading
