He may be big and mean, but something (some other cat probably) was brave enough to get a hold of Junior and bite him pretty fiercely. It was probably two weeks ago when we noticed that Junior was skittish about going outside for a couple days. Something had scared him. A few more days passed before we noticed the bite marks under all that hair. And then it started looking bad. And gross.
So Alan had the pleasure of taking him to the vet today, where they anesthetize a cat like ours before they will even attempt to look at him. Turns out the damage was pretty bad under the skin, and boy, are we going to have fun treating him for the next 10 days! We get to do all kinds of fun and gross things to a very large, sometimes very mean cat.
To be continued, I'm sure.
