Trying to get mom out of the dog room this morning, the dogs got out. I managed to get all of them back, but couldn't find Babushka. She had skinnied through the baby gate and was in my bedroom, trying to play with my mom's old cats. Well, Dolly, the world's meanest grumpy old cat, swiped at her and caught her right across the eye. After I got the bleeding stopped, and threw some clothes on, off we went to the vets. Most of the blood was from a cut on the upper eyelid, but she does have a large, deep scratch across her eye and blood in the anterior part of her eyeball. The vet can't visualize the pupil to make sure it's ok, so I have to keep a close eye on her and take her in immediately if the bleeding gets worse or there is clear drainage or she won't open the eye. I have a e-collar for her, but for right now she is in her crate up on a chair right in front of me, so I am leaving it off unless I have to leave for a long time. She is being very good at leaving it alone and is sleeping. She has antibiotics and ointment and pain meds. And, on top of all this, she got her final puppy shots today. My poor, poor little puppy. Gee, just what I needed right now, more stress.

Pam - I wish you were my neighbor so I could
just go over to your house and help out in some way!
Bless your heart, you always have your hands full and
your heart open.

Poor little angel, I hope everything heals and there is
no damage.

Thank you everyone for the well wishes. She is being so good. She does have a slight fever from the distemper shot, that may be another reason why she is being so mellow tonight.

Today seems to be a bad day for puppies, three having to be rushed in to the vet. Must be bad mojo today.

Poor thing hope she gets well soon. I always worry more about my cats hurting Holly than my older Chi since cats seem to go for the eyes.
