Kittenz, astronomy, science, photography and other four-legged snarky stuff.
I got nommed by my Spike, The Vampire Cat, on my walk to the bus stop this morning. I think it's infected. (He nailed me on my left hand, in the webbing betwen the ring and middle fingers).Buckeye, Dealer of Rare Coins
Buckeye, be very careful about infection from cat bites. They can quickly become serious. Two friends wound up in the hospital for a couple of days from bites after their cat got in a panic about something.
Oh, and just to add, Ripley never breaks the skin.
Centaur meat is good meat
Ripley Sweetheart, the eatage part is OK. That lets our kittenslaves know how much we like them.But watch ur claws. Properly sharpened claws tend to make our kitslaves shriek. They're oddly delicate sometimes.I envy U ur finch feeders. All we've got is hummingbirds, who have No respect for us fierce felines.Silkey, adoring fan
Hah!That's wut u get inviting birdeez to teh house to torment teh gurlzzz.They gotta take out their frustrations sumwherez.......flory
Maxxine was bleeding me gud (scratching, not biting) every day until quite recently. (Have a big ol' bottle of rubbing alcohol in the bafroom for dousing wounds!) Hardly ever happens nau, unless we're play too rough and I'm not paying attention. She's just about a year old, so I guess she's finally grown out of it. ;)
OUCH!!!! Ripley Chainsaw, you is one nommy kitten, but adorable look on your face as you nom it up.
Buckeye, see a doctor. I've rarely gotten bit hard by a cat, but if it goes deeper than just a few mm, it will get infected. Better to nip it (so to speak) in the bud.Lily has started to nom a little bit, but as she crosses the one-year mark, I think it's just a phase.On the other hand, Tux, that little shithead, usually means it.
Yeah, Buckeye, please do go to the doctor -- you don't want to see a red line going up your arm and then end up in the ER with a huge infection.Now, for the foto -- were those soft paws or claw paws?My orange guy gets overstimulated and rabbit-kicks my arm and hand to death unless I get out of the way fast enough.
Pretty much soft paws.She just gnaw me a little and rarely scratches. She does the "rake" but not seriously.
That does not look like a hoof!baudin
Adding my vote for doctor, Buckeye. I am one who ended up in a hospital with an ignored cat bite. 3 days. The next time I took myself to the ER, stat.

Cat bite first aid per my doctor....Immediately run warm water full blast over the wound for at least five minutes to clean. Wash with soapy water and rinse again for 5 minutes. Apply antibiotic cream. If the bite is deep, go to the doctor or clinic immediately. Go to doctor for antibiotics at the FIRST sign of any redness or throbbing. A red line extending outward from the wound means a trip to the emergency room is in order. Keep tetanus shot up to date. Teach kittens not to bite; even play-biting is bad. You never know when a cat might be frightened and bite hard as a reaction.
Dudley noms me all the time.
