Puss has been a bit down since her operation and has not recovered very well. It has taken her a long time to get back to herself.
Yesterday I was stroking her and noticed there was still a bit of a scab or something on her scar, I had a better look because it has been ages since the operation. It was just a small hard scab or something, (this is a bit disgusting so be warned) anyway I was thinking maybe I should take her back to the vets, but decided to give it a tug with the tweezers myself.
Got my best tweezers and gave it a tug, it did not move even thought I had a good hold on it. The cat was giving me dark looks and was not impressed with what I was doing.. now I am thinking I really will have to take her back... decide to give it a bit of a harder tug.. well much harder.. out comes a two inch long bit of string that must have been left behind after the stitches, was all scabby and horrible. It was right inside of the cat with just a tiny bit poking out. She has a perfectly formed small hole where it had been. Not nice.
She looked very miffed at me but did not seem the worse for it. This morning she was licking it a bit but it does now seem to be healing over, so glad I got it out really.
Today she has been out and about and seems more herself so maybe it was bothering her a bit. She has also, this afternoon, delivered a rabbit to the front door step, so she must be feeling more on form. Rabbit was put back up the hill for the fox to have for his tea.
