Sophie, The Tortie - Day 2

Sophie spent a very quiet day in her cage eating and resting. Near the end of the afternoon I went in to check on her and take in a fresh bowl of food to find her resting on top of the carrier instead of in it.

I also got a look at some of her wounds for the first time and it brings tears to my eyes to think that this dear little cat was attacked. Her wounds look like teeth puncture wounds which are all over the front of her neck and chest. The vet says they are just superficial so I guess they aren't that deep but they look painful. I was told she has about 15 of these wounds.

Since Sophie can't be handled, I have taken a few pictures of her wounds so that I can keep an eye on them and see the progress, good or bad. I wish I could wrap her in a soft blanket and hold her so she would know she is safe and she is loved.

  1. Poor Sophie. Such a bootiful kittie too. She is so fortunate dat you are taking care of her. Maybe she'll grow to trust you and you can hold her.
