Took Cookie to the vet.

I took Cookie to the vet and they said that even though the stitches look swollen and tender, it is because she is so active and she keeps bumping into things, running, jumping, rolling around and playing. So, it's causing her to have a lot of tenderness. I have her stitches taken out Friday and I hope that goes well. Thought I would bring everyone up to date!

It is good to hear that it isn't something as serious as you thought. Infections can pretty pretty nasty to deal with. It is hard to keep a cat down especially if they are young and active. I guess all you can do is try to baby her a little more(if possible) and let time do it's job of healing propery and good luck on the stitiches.

hi mamasan, when my cat came back from the vet they said to keep that head cone thingy on for 10 days! the cat was so miserable trying to jump onto things and falling off, even walking was dangerous for him. i took it off in a few hours and gave him a little nudge whenever he tried to like the stitches. he is fine months later. i really hope everything goes well on friday!
