Not really in the mood to venture over to my local walk in clinic or the emergency room (for something that’s deemed an “emergency” they sure take their sweet ass time). So left to my limited resources, Jared had the brilliant idea of “Reef Glue” to seal the gaping wound. Not the most comfortable experience but it got the job done. So what to do when you’re faced with a similarly unfortunate situation? Properly clean and sterilize the affliction. I took extra care with this step because cats harbor ridiculous amounts of bacteria. I’ve been bitten before right through the pressure point between my pointer finger and thumb. It looked like someone took a rubber glove and just blew it up. I also wailed for about 2 hours after that and didn’t sleep. Cats are dirty. I love mine but they’re dirty. I hope you don’t find yourself in my boat (kayak for one, please) but if you happen to, please get looked at by a doctor, I can’t stress that enough.
