Thanks for all your well wishes for Fred. I think he is going to be o.k. His eye is clearing up, and my scratches are healing nicely, except, he got me good this morning on the back of my thighs. Putting eye drops in a cat is a two person job.

Have you tried wrapping him in a really thick towel? Used to have to clip the wings of my sis's parrot that way, he hated me. still does. He bit me and i don't hate him, whats with that.

I was gonna make the same suggestion: make a cat burrito with a towel. Just be sure to “boojy” the cat beforehand, to calm it down so it doesn’t run from you.

(boojy= kina like what you do when you see a cute kitten.)

It worked for when I had to clean my kitties ears (ear mites). Believe me, kitty was not happy AT ALL.

so how do you suggest wrapping the towel around??

when my cat sees me coming with my hunting look and a towel he doesn't come out from under the bed for hours!!

Make sure the cat is in a room with nothing to hide under. Then before getting the towel, close off all possible escape doors. Don't let the cat see you getting the towel. Back the cat into a corner, and when the time is right, leap at the cat.

Here's hoping Fred heals quickly and there's enough of those eye drops to apply to your wounds!

If you haven't seen this already, it's good for a kitty-type laugh:

That site is sooo cute. I have to try a one on one eye drop thing tonight. I will try the towel trick. Thanks all.

Frieda, you have to decide that you're the boss, its the midset that gives you the testicular fortitude to grab a cat out from under the bed, damn the scratch thing, and make the cat burrito. If you don't want to do the boojy thing, you might just put on some classical music and then make fun of him if he doesnt calm down or like it.


Been too long on the farm to take any crap from a cat!
