The wound already looks pretty good. Keep an eye out for any new redness/swelling/color changes in the wound, but otherwise I’d say he’ll be pretty good to go within a week.

The second pic you looks great, just as it should! Also where I work as a CVT we ask clients about the cone collar, cats hate them and we don’t like to make them miserable if its not needed! There are cats that need them (like if they have a drain placed) but we usually let them have the benefit of no cone first to see how they do. Your guy is obviously doing great without one since it looks like its healing really well.

@FutureMrsHallam:  Aww they remind me of my cat and her brother (a friend adopted him). They’re both about 7 pounds full grown, and she looks like a fluffernutter – bright orange on top and bleach white on the bottom (and socks!). My roommate, in her final year of vet school, suspects that someone found them while the mom was hunting and dropped them off at a shelter (they were only 8 weeks old), so they ended up small.

@FutureMrsHallam:  When i had a cat she got into a fight with the other cat we had and he bit her on the hip. Same thing happened. The smell of the puss was so strong! We took her to the vet. They had to cut off some of the dead skin and clean all of it out. Also gave her stitches. $500 later.

She had to wear a cone to not try to lick her wounds.

She was back to normal within days…

As soon as the wound closes, it will heal nicely. All will be ok. Just make sure you put a cone on him so he can’t get at it.

Cats have tons of bacteria in their mouth (way more then dogs) and their skin closes quickly before fighting off the infection.


Your kitty will be ok.
