Yesterday the cat exploded

HE's FINE!

Three weeks ago, Yama Bungle had an abcess on his neck.  He had it lanced and an antibiotic jab, and it seemed that all was well, until yesterday, when, he exploded dramatically all over the utility room, sending goo in all directions.  I have just finished (I hope) scrubbing it off the washing machine where I had not initially spotted the contamination...

Ah, cats.  Anyway, back to the vet this morning, where he was very annoyed, growled a lot, menaced a couple of dogs,  and had another antibiotic, a swab test in case he has an antibiotic-resistant strain of exploding bug and a course of new and different antibiotics.  Oh, and had his claws clipped in the hope that we won't get quite so perforated when we practice A Cat is Basically A Tube pill insertion over the next week.  I never think of cutting cat claws, since usually they keep them trim themselves, but Yama's were rather long and it's not as if he goes out much any more, prefering to linger indoors where he can explode over our possessions more spectacularly.

Oh dear. Coupled with the usual form of Yamaexplosions, this must have been terrifying indeed. Hope he recovers soon, without further explosive ejection of ickiness.

You don't play Left4Dead, so it'll mean nothing to you, but I'm now envisaging a feline Boomer... (And kind of wishing that I wasn't.)

Actually, the vet has recently come up with a new approach to Yamasplosions, and we had been congratulating ourselves that it was working.

FOOLS.

Clearly he was left with no option but to find new and exciting ways to explode.

Poor Yama. Poor you, to have to deal with the explodey bits.

Eek! That sounds disturbing and disconcerting and I'm sure there are a bunch of other dis- words that could describe it.

I hope that this round does the trick! Does the towel burrito trick work on Yama, to prevent perforations?
