:cry:So, Kilo enjoys walking on a leash, but today, on the way back from our walk, he stopped and started licking his paws! I picked him up and looked at his lil feetsies, only to find that he had somehow scraped his toes on all four paws!! :arghh: I took him inside and washed his paws off. I put him down on the floor, and he started to vigorously lick his paws. Not only this, but when he stood up, he couldnt walk at first, and when he did, he was limping! :cry::arghh:. So i picked him up and made sure all the dirt was out of the wounds. Then i started to freak out because... what if it got infected?! If he went to the litterbox and poo or litter got in it, we’d have to take him to the vet, which around here = $$$!! . At this point i was mentally unstable because now im like: what if- what if- what if-... so i look on google for help. Of course the results were all about positively horrific desieses cats can get from infected wounds, so i descided i would think for myself. I sat down and looked through my first aid kit. I found some medical tape and gauze. I grabbed four socks from my brother’s drawer that had no pairs, and i put Kilo on his bed. Kilo Meowed like a crying baby!:bigtears:! I guess the fluffyness went in his cut and it hurt! So i found the laundry basket and made a big comfy bed out of it by putting a pillow on the bottom and a blanket over the whole thing. I put my poor baby on the “bed” and then pulled out the gauze. I wrapped all four of his paws in gauze and then put a sock on each footsie. I made sure the socks wont fall off by wrapping them in medical tape. He HATED it at first, and jumped onto the floor, trying to back out of the socks, and the trying and failing to walk. It was the most pitiful thing i have ever seen in my life!:bigtears:! He gave up and jumped up on the bed, almost falling off because his claws were covered up. I watched him walk to his bed, sniff it and then walk over to the laundry basket. He liked the laundry basket better?! ?! And he half climbed half fell into his bed. Poor guy.. hes sleeping in the basket right now. I am going to have to be an assistant for him, because he cant walk. Ill have to take him to pee, and to eat.. ): heres pics of the poor guy. Hes tired and stressed.
