I had a minor allergic reaction to one of my vaccinations. At the spot on my arm where the v-e-t stuck a pointy thing in me, my skin got all irritated and a big scab grew. Because I am a furry good girl, I didn't pick at it. The v-e-t looked at it on a later visit and he said it would just fall off when it was ready.
Apparently last night was when it was ready to fall off. As usual, I was bouncing around the apartment with my favourite fev-ver butt mousie. I ran past Jasmine and she saw something drop on the floor. She bent down expecting to find mousie parts, but instead found a piece of me!
So now I have another bald patch. It's a bit raw and red, and Jasmine keeps looking at it and asking me how I'm feeling. I told her I'm fine, and that I'm glad my other bald patches are growing back because I quite like my fur!
Here's a list of all my bald patches:
- shaved tummy from emergency surgery
- shaved patch on one arm for sleepy drug they gave me for the surgery
- shaved patch on shoulder where the v-e-t stole some blood
- bald patch on other arm where scab fell off after minor allergic reaction to vaccination
That's a lot of missing fur for a little kitty!
BTW, this picture is from a little while ago, and my tummy fur has grown back more since then. Also, it was before the scab fell off, so you can't see the bald patch on my left arm. I didn't want to show you that because it's bit yucky.
