My Cat keeps ripping out his stitches.
by Tara Brackett
this is Mr. Kitty
I have a a siamese..not sure if he is blue point or lilac. anyway, he is an indoor cat and one day he got out, which is very unlike him to venture off. he was lost for a month and a half. i thought i had lost my baby. i was so upset..then one day iwas in the kitchen and i heard a meow at the front door and it was my baby. he had come back but he was severely injured. his color had somehow gotten up under his arm pit and i guess he had gotten hung somewhere and it had cut him open. the would was huge and very deep and VERY infected .ive never smelled a smell so bad. i took him to the animal hospital right away and he had to have 30 stitches and he was nearly starved to death..im asuming because he is declawed he had a time catching food. the vet said he was VERY VERY lucky to be alive. he has been hom for 2 months now and because of where his stitches are, under his arm pit, he keeps stretching and ripping them open and they're taking forever to heal. im scared hes going to get infected again or get staph. i keep antibiotic cream on it that the vet gave me and i keep it as clean as i can but it doesnt seem to be getting an better. ive taken him to the vet 4 times to have him restitched. and the other day he started throwing up..which he has never done before. it was a lime green color and VERY thick...kind of like mashed potatoes. he did it twice in two days..i only givehim cat food. never human food. i dont know what he could have gotten ahold of to make him throw up like that..im scared it has something to do with his wound..if something happens to him i will be devastated. i dont know what else to do.
