Momma Tortie attacked Missy Blue Eyes on our "Easy Like Sunday" morning. Since Missy doesn't have any claws, I jumped in to separate them. Mistake! Momma Tortie bit me on the right wrist, really hard. I did snatch Missy out of the way.
Sunday night the site of two large puncture wounds began to swell and turn firey red. The redness almost circled my arm. And, had a blood streak on my arm. It was very painful to move my fingers. Monday morning the entire wrist halfway up to my elbow was swollen to twice it's size. I couldn't even use my right hand.
Charley made me go to the doctor Monday. After a blood test, tetanus shot, RX for antibiotics and pain, and a stern warning about the dangers of getting bitten by a domestic cat, I was sent home to rest.
When we got home, Missy and Momma Tortie were sitting, side by side.
