    Ok. Those of you who were in the chat room with me know this already but Maverick came home w a bloody paw last night. He had split the pad somehow. Cut it on a can lid or something super sharp. It's almost an inch long and half an inch deep. He wasn't sore and was walking and playing and acting normal. We cleaned him up as best we could (mental note to self, make a doggy first aid kit) and today bf went out and got some gauze and that stretchy tape. I rinsed it with salt water and we wrapped him up. He's fine.

    There was so much drama because he was wailing on the floor, milking it as he usually does. I mean, I'm sure it hurt but he really loves the attention too. And the weird thing is that Mini (Maverick and Mini are the original two) was obviously upset by Maverick's antics. She flew into a rage. Hid under a table and slapped Mikey's butt with full claws several times. Mikey then had a fit and sat on Maverick trying to get steve's pity. Mini flew across Maverick and attack Steve before I grabbed her and put her in her perch (top of a shelf) so she could watch things and calm down. We had to put Mikey outside because he kept running all over Maverick who was still whining on the floor.

    Now, Maverick is happily chewing a bone and Mikey is still tied up outside and Mini is cleaning herself. :rolleyes:

    My old vet taught me this trick. After you've cleaned it out thoroughly and put some antiseptic down inside, hold the edges of the wound together tightly, making sure the area is dry and run a bead of Super Glue GEL down the surface. Hold it together until the glue dries thoroughly. The stuff was originally developed to use in place of stitches in certain applications.

    Now, has your bunch been in the chat room with my bunch lately? :D

    That's a good idea. I will look into it. How long will it stay on?

    Just keep an eye on it. I'm not sure how long it will stay on a foot. You'll probably have to reapply a few times. It worked like a charm on Gonzo's jaw. He had to have surgery to remove a salivary gland at the vet school. He had some condition that only dogs get, and being a cat, his jaw area was a lot smaller than my vet wanted to take a chance with in his small practice, so he referred us to the vet school. Everything was fine, except some idiot student stitched him up with a running suture. Any idea how long it takes a cat to remove a running suture? :rolleyes:

    Bronki sheared the flap of skin off of the large pad of both front feet at the lake, he must have come down on something at just the right angle..I had to carry him outside..down three steps to void and then back up to put him on his bed. It was a rough ordeal and lasted about three days. maverick must be made of tough stuff to walk on it..I hope he heals quickly...tell him I am sorry about his boo.
