Sadie Shows Her Personality

OK I had to share this photo of Sadie. I think it's a good representation of her personality. Curious and as if to say "whatchoooo doin'?"
Poor Sadie destroyer of all...she just gets into EVERYTHING. On Sunday night she climbed up on the kitchen sink where she knows she is not supposed to go. She got into my dish drying rack and played with a mug that was there. Well the mug broke and she cut her back paw.

For many reasons this is dangerous. Sadie is FIV +. So blood can be life threatening if the other cats lick it. And the cut itself could have really hurt Sadie. I couldn't get the spot to stop bleeding even though I was holding pressure on the spot. It didn't appear to be a big cut. Just a cut that would not stop bleeding on it's own.

I tried one of those sticks men use when they cut their face shaving. But poor Sadie cried. I've NEVER heard her cry like I did on Sunday night. Poor thing.

I found gauze and some old vet tape from when Emily was sick and I bandaged up her paw tight enough to keep pressure on the wound to make the bleeding stop.

Poor Sadie, destroyer of all, didn't like this and tried hard to kick it off and bite it off. But this momma is smart and bandaged it well. It stayed on all night. In the morning I removed the bandage and the wound looked perfectly fine. I applied some neosporin and she's good as new.

Aw, poor Sadie!

What a beautiful cat! Glad she's healing well!

Poor baby. Hopefully she'll remember this and not foray onto the sink again!!

We use that stick thing on our guinea pigs and dog when we cut their nails a little too close to the quick. And they screech too. I'm guessing it stings.

Oh poor baby! She's beautiful :O)

Lauren said...

@Mum-Me- curious haha...understatement. LOL

@Jessica -Poor Sadie's Momma!

@Coffee Slut - good to see you around again! Thanks. She's fine. She's already figuring out what to fuck with next. LOL

@mary- I suppose it stings. Never tried it on me. HAHA I'm hoping it taught her a lesson. But I'm betting against me on this one.

@babs- THANKS!! :D

Glad she's healing well. The Neosporin probably helped a lot. We go through gallons of that stuff.

The verification word was "pride" like a bunch of lions. That made me lol.

Lauren said...

@D.O.M. - PRIDE that is very ironic. BTW I already caught her on the sink again. So much for learning her lesson.

Isolated Existence said...

Aww, she's a cutie. We have a cat and he knows not to go in the kitchen but he follows me to the entrance to ask me for food, he, he. I would freak out if he were to get a cut! I wouldn't know what to do with myself so thanks for sharing your story ;-)

LadyBanana said...

Aww poor little thing! I hope her paw is all healed now :)

Aleta said...

Awww, she's so sweet looking, would never know that she's into everything. She has that "Me? I Innocent" look. Hehe. Too cute. I'm glad you took good care of her.

Ronda's Rants said...

AW she is so pretty...I am glad she is better!

Lauren said...

@isolated - I don't have a kitchen, I have a kitchen wall. OY!
It's like she said to g-d, I don't want to be born until mommy has a place that she cannot hide anything from me in.

@aleta- exactly, who me? YES YOU! SITTTTTTT DOWN!

@Rhonda- thanks. and me too. :)
