Yesterday, bright and early I found myself at Urgent Care. Around 2:00 a.m. I woke up to a burning pain in my eye. When I opened my left eye, all I saw was a black mass near my face. One of the black kitties had clawed me in the eye.
The doctor gave me a shot, renewed my tetanus and took me off work for three days-yeah right! He put me on antibiotics and a steriod type of eye drop that burns when I apply it. You know, I have had cats claw me in the middle of the night usually they hook me in the nose, but never in the eye!
I feel better today and I will be going to work today and tomorrow then I have four days off which I can use right now. I can feel my eye all the time it feels like pressure and I am watching it for nasty drainnage or more redness or any heat as I am well aware of cat scratch fever. the doctor said he only tipped me with his claws, he didn’t puncture any of the lining of the eye. The only thing I can think of is something must have scared him in the middle of the night. When I laid down to sleep, seven cats climbed on me to settle down for the night- to find the one who scratched me would be an undertaking as they were all black.
