Holiday Chaos

Well, hello fellow bloggers.

The Holiday season is well upon us now, and I know everyone is scrambling. (join the club). There has been some major "holiday" chaos here in our new apartment in FL. The other night Josh and i were in the living room watching tv, with the cats and dog wandering around. Whiskey went into the bed and moments later we hear chaos! We are not sure what happened or who started it but Mackie (our smallest kitten) was pinned against the wall and the dresser with Whiskey going after her. Talk about trauma (and I'm talking about me). I quickly grabbed Whiskey and put her in the spare room with the door closes screaming at Josh to find Mackie and make sure she was ok. Well she wans't (or not really at least). This is what our poor baby looked like:

She got beat up pretty good. She managed to do some of her own damage though, Whiskey had a nice cut wound above her eye from a claw. I was freaking out(!!!!) I do NOT do well with any type of blood, unless its my own. I was an absolute mess. We called my mom and all she made out from my frantic call was "Whiskey" and "blood". She came right over, gave Mackie a once over and said she looked fine. We gave her a bowl of water and wet food on the porch and she chowed down. After everything calmed down we checked on Whiskey and cleaned up her little scratch. Yesterday I noticed Mackie's right side of her face (cheek) was swollen. Just for safe measure we took her to the vet this morning and she checked out well, got a little bit of pain and antibiotics meds. Needless to say Whiskey has a muzzle coming in the mail, its a perfectly humane one and will only be on when we are home and the gate is open and all critters are wandering. It is a plastic basket muzzle where she will be allowed to pant and drink from. Hopefully it will be just temporary. Also my mom bought her the thunder shirt for Christmas and I hope that will help as well.

On a happy note, if I didn't have to take her to the vet (by my mom's house). We would not have checked out a few garage sale and I wouldn't have found (to me) my new dining room table for $15!

I hope everyone is having a slightly less chaotic holiday season.
