Those who have been following my blog and the stories of Cookie will know that he was once badly injured in a fight with another male cat (read story here).
Well, guess what? He was involved in another fight...and lost again.....not once....but twice (don't know who were the culprits)! >:(
The first injury was more serious...it was his hind legs and it was bleeding (this was taken 2 days after the injury, so it wasn't as bad).
Not only did he return injured, he returned totally filthy. I suspect he fell into the drain while taking flight (aka running away). I had no choice but to hose him down with water.
Later, all he wanted to do was to be left alone in a corner just like any injured animal licking his wounds (he did that for a few days). He would crawl into a makeshift bed we made for him and sleep most of the day.
This was taken 4 days later and the injury has healed somewhat but you can still see the claw sticking out.
Well, it's been 2 weeks already...and he's obviously feeling a lot better now....by how comfortably he's sleeping.
Cookie: Stop taking these embarrassing photos of me and showing my 'small' manhood to the world, will ya!! >_<
I don't know why he gets into these fights...it's probably just because he's male and other male cats would see him as a threat....for territory or for females!
Well, he doesn't need territory...he's already the 'king of our house' :D
And he doesn't need females...he's got his 'manhood' snipped already ;D
Gosh, sometimes I think it may even be a female who clawed him...having mistaken his advances as wanting to mate when he's just being friendly and wants to play.
