So I did a little clean-up of his wounds, and man does it smell bad. I cleaned him at first with a soapy cloth, and when it was clear that was not getting the job done, I manned up, put on long sleeves and pants, and took him to the bathroom and put his ass under the faucet. It cleaned it out a good bit, and the wound is clean, but I have no neosporin. All I have is hydrocortisone. Is that ok?
Also, I have no idea what an abscess looks like on a cat, this just looked like a nasty pus-filled hole. I’m worried enough that I will get him to the vet ASAP in the morning, but he is not acting sluggish (more so than usual) or in pain, so maybe you all are right and this is a common cat injury. I tried to keep that jackass indoors.
I repeat- that smelled disgusting. And is hydrocortisone ok?
