Ouch!!



My cats got a pedicure last evening, and this little wiggle worm moved just at the wrong moment, getting a back toe cut too close. The vet tech, whom both cats know, apologized, staunched the bleeding and was soon on her way.  I meanwhile, left for dinner and was met upon return by bloody paw marks on the bedroom floor, a blood stained duvet and sheets and a little girl in no apparent distress who awaited me on a rather horrendously blood soaked couch cushion.

Our vet tech was consulted and promised to return today which she has, medication in hand. The bleeding has stopped. We think Phoebe, annoyed by her nail, chewed on it when I was not at home to notice.

She is contentedly sleeping while I wonder at the best solution for taking feline blood from a blue and white duvet, bleaching sheets and a love seat cover. Any suggestions?

Oh, yikes! I wish I had a practical suggestion, but I don't think I ever faced this particular problem!

No idea! I can't say I've ever had a pet bleed all over everything. (At least not as an adult when it was my problem to deal with.)

I think everything needs be dyed to match the stains.
