I have one very very grateful cat by the name of Tee who most of you remember had to be taken in to our Veterinarian after wounds from a fight became grossly infected. If that trip had not been made, Tee, would be dying. And he knows it. He’s been since the fight and consequent trip to our Vet been hanging around our house with an ongoing look of utter gratitude written on his face.
When it comes to Life and death or for that matter, the welfare of the barn cats next door to us, money is not an issue. The owners’ attitude are “Oh, they are just barn cats. They can fend for themselves.” When I told one of the owners that I took Tee in to our Vet, she responded, “He looks fine to me.” Which I said to, “Well of course he does now. We had his wounds attended to. If we had not done so, Tee would have died.”
She couldn’t get away from me fast enough.
Back to our Tee ….
I thought it would be a challenge to describe what Tee felt like with photographs while his left front leg was inflamed with puss, and what he felt like right after we brought him back home. I chose, much to my surprise, two photographs I almost deleted. The “hurting” picture I thought the composition was truly different yet the picture itself a bit on the ugly side. Something made me keep it. The second one I almost deleted too, because it is so far from my usual style that my first impulse was “Ugh”.
When something new
sometimes comes along
just because it’s new
makes it feel uncomfortable.
I’m so glad I kept both for they are now helping me show you what I “think” Tee felt during this Event in his Life.
This one is how Tee felt while his front leg was infected:
OUCH Oh, Mommy, I HURT!!!!!
And this one is how Tee felt when that puss was drained, antibiotics and fluid given, and he returned home:
OH YAY OH YAY OH YAY!!!!
