I had two cats …. a small white one, and a huge black one. He was the sweetest cat, but whenever I tried to put him in the crate to take him to the Vet, he put up a real fuss. I'd wrap him like a burrito, but with his size he always wiggled out. Well, the last time, one of his hind nails dug into my upper forearm really deep. I got him in but it was bleeding like crazy. Finally I wrapped it tightly in some towels, laid down and put my arm up in the air. It slowed down, but continued to bleed, just not as much. I rewrapped it with a pile of square gauze pads and put surgical tape around it tightly. Finally it was just dribbling, so I cleaned it off with H2O2, and wow, did it bubble up. Then I covered it. Next morning when I showered, it started again. Again I had to cover it, using H2O2 and an antibiotic cream. Finally I went to the doctor and he confirmed that's what it was. He gave me 2 different antibiotics to take and said to keep it clean, covered and be sure not to rub it or it would bleed again. Everytime I took a shower, no matter how carefully I washed it, it would bleed …. not as much, but enough. Finally, after 2 full months, it is healed, but I have a scar there. So, be careful with those kitty claws …. they can really do damage.
