The horror...


Ok, so I've been fighting again.

This time, I copped a nasty bite just above my left eye. The bite wound was invisible under my furs, so Nick and Kate didn't know it was infected until my face puffed up a few days later (you can kind of see that in the first shot of me in the prison box, my left eye is all squished up).

So it was a rare trip to the v-e-t for me. Luckily, this is only a five-minute car ride down the hill to the city. I wouldn't let Kate take any pictures of me in the v-e-t surgery... some things are best left private. And it was very gross, anyway. All that needs to be said is that I came out with a heap of my face furs shaved off and some antibiotics that Kate has to give me every day for a while.

I'm ok now, it's probably worse than it looks. I just have to suffer the shame of having shaved furs on my face for a month or so. Does it make me look tough? Maybe I need to wear a t-shirt that says 'You should see the other cat...'. Daisy or Skeezix, do you have one of those?

Cheers,
--Pabs

Oh my poor poor Pablo! I'm glad that you survived your brush with death (or possibly blindness). I think your furless bit of face looks quite tidy. I'm sure it will grown back and maybe you will have a very manly tough guy scar.

Monica said...

You should be very careful when you go outside, Pablo. It is dangerous out there. Maybe you should stay a bit closer to home...

Dearrr Pablo,

I wanted to know if I could join yourrr fight club? Yes, I know I am a gurrrl cat, howeverrr, afterrr my bean typed forrr me my firrrst rrresponse I went outside to check on MY trrree. A gypsy cat was lounging in it and I opened a can of WHOOP MOUSIE and made herrr flee!

Pablo, I'm sorry you got in a fight and got an owie! And it's certainly no fun to go to the v.e.t. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Chairman Mao said...

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Axel and Manny said...

wow, Kate took 9 pics of your v-e-t trip, she must have that camera permantly around her neck?! I'll never understand people...

I feel for you Pab's, ive been hit by cars twice whilst living in Hobart0 1st time was a few days before x-mas. Poor daddy had to giva all his xmas money to my doctor! Get well, take some time out, get at least 16hrs sleep a day!!

I was approached by a big-time movie producer for a kitty-remake of Fight Club. He wanted me to play Brad Pitt;s role, coz im super cute... they needed some eye candy for the femme-feline audiences :)

Daisy said...

Oh, Pablo! I am very sorry you got hurty. I guess you shouldn't play so rough!

I am with Phoebe, I think your scar will look very manly and tough. I was looking through my wardrobe, but I could not find an appropriate t-shirt for you to wear. I do not think a Hello Kitty t-shirt would send the appropriate message for you.

Please feel better soon. Or I will be forced to come back and sing you a get-well song!

Yoggie said...

You ARE tough mate!
Yes, theese horror boxes are never nice.
Hope you won the cat fight.

Trace said...

I notice there's no picture of you entering the prison box. Was there a fight involved with that as well?

Parker said...

Poor Pablo! What an awful fate, I hope your fur grows back and you are as good as new.

Pablo said...

Kate might be clever, Aunty Trakka, but she can't put me in the prison box and take a photo at the same time! (Nick was at work.)

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

That's the perfect shirt saying. We'll have to root around to find one.

Jeter and Mickey said...

Dear Pablo,
I hope that your "badge of honor" is healing!
Thank you for the birthday greeting! I loved it!
Love--Mickey

Faz the Cat said...

COOL! Firstly, I am so impressed that you were in a big fight and, second, I love a cat with scars. You didn't even seem fazed by the V.E.T.!!!!!

You are DEFINITELY my hero Pabs.

The Crew said...

You didn't say who else was involved in this altercation. Do we know them?

DaisyMae Maus said...

I don't think that it's a furry good idea to let other cats give you the bitey on your face! You need to be furry careful, Pablo, or else you might lose your good looks!

Pablo said...

I'd prefer not to reveal the identity of the cat I had a rumble with... the first rule of Fight Club is that you don't talk about Fight Club...

caricature said...

That looks a bit nasty ~ I'm sure you will heal completely in no time though and the fur will grow back :)

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

wow, be careful out there buddy. chicks do dig scars tho.

Chairman Mao said...

Hey, Pablo! Guess what -- I tagged you for a meme. Come by my bloggie for deetails!
