This morning we called our Vet and he was able to see her first thing this morning. After he examined her he said that her eye was fine, only a little inflammation & infection of her eyelid, so he gave her two medications. The Vet applied an ointment to her eyelid while we were there and the antibiotic we brought home with us. Princess is such a gentle cat that we just picked her up and were about to give her a dose of that great tasting cherry flavored amoxicillin when she showed us her claws. We had never seen her claws before. We looked at each other and exclaimed, "Did you know she had claws?" She never even showed them to the Vet and just sat there and purred loudly for him while he rubbed an ointment onto her sore inflamed eyelid. She was such a good kitty at the Vet's, but now it was time for:
Plan II Wrap the entire kitty in a towel, but be sure to leave her head out and hold cat firmly, while another person administers the medication....then run!
I'm really looking forward to all of the added exercise I'll be getting three times a day as I chase the cat down to medicate her. Each medication is to be used 3x a day and I seriously doubt if she'll let us do both at the same time, but we'll give it a try.
