3 paw prints were added around my kanji for love...since that is correct...I decided I should keep it as such. I'll eventually make a piece for my paw prints...but continually add prints as cats come into my life. (not frequently I hope!)
I didn't take my prozac yesterday, I forgot. I'm 100% sure I'm having pms issues...super emotional and some other physical signs of impending period-goodness.
I decided to trim Cordelia's claws this a.m. and when I came to her left paw, the first one was ....not there?
She seemed agitated and not wanting me to touch it. Some debris was stuck to that 'area' and I thought maybe she had gotten into some poo and litter 'clogged' it up.
My fears are confirmed...she has pulled her claw out. After soaking her paw and letting her lick it...(soaked in warm water infused with coconut oil) I can see a pink hole where her claw would've been. I have NOT seen any remnants of her claw...no blood...nothing that I can see to figure out when, where, and how this happened. Will set up an appointment for her to make sure it isn't infected...or at least get antibiotics as a precaution. It's close enough to her year exam...get that done (and maybe rabies shot, but not the other fvcrp or whatever...I find that unnecessary.)
Terrible timing for me...with not enough 'happy pill' and hormonal crap. I've done way too much crying over this. Somewhat embarrassing, but I'm pretty sure the majority of it is more because I feel that this is an indication of how 'good' of a cat mom I am. Even tho, this is NOT.
Also, because I'm upset I didn't see this sooner. I regularly check their claws once if not twice a week...so I'm baffled as to when this happened and how.
Need to cut myself some slack. I'll update when I find out more...until then, I hope everyone has had a good weekend. ^_^
