Frustrated Tabby Friday

Hi kitties. I have a reason for having my hat on right here. Since I was a young mankitten, I have had problems with cat acne on my chin. I'm a good boy letting my mum clean my chin, but I still get it. This week, my acne turned into an abscess. I had to let my mum clip my chin and then clean out the abscess, then went to the vet for an antibiotic injection. I did not approve of any of it.
For now, I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself. Hopefully the weekend will be better!
From the mum:
Fui was a very very good boy, and even though it was very uncomfortable for him and a bit scary, he didn't scratch or go for the bite. He is a very gentle tabbyman. When he realised that his v-e-t friend had liver treats, he forgot that he was out of his comfort zone and spent the rest of the appointment trying to do his high five trick for treats. His wound will have to be cleaned twice a day for the next week, and so far he is not fighting it too hard. He really is a very nice cat.

Aw Fui...what a sweetheart you are. Our guardian angel cat who started it all, Morgan ::bows head:: had feline acne her whole life. Mom would wash her sweet white chin with mild soap and a cotton ball a few times a week and that helped a lot.

Purrs to you,

Cory

I'm so sorry. Is there a cream or something you can put on his chin to prevent this from happening again ?

You did so well enduring the procedure, Fui. The ouchie will be gone real fast, we're sure! Have a good relaxing weekend.

Fui, you are a good ManCat to let your Mom care for you without any fuss. A warm washcloth might help you lil' chin feel better.
Mommy says Scarlett (Of Scarlett and Melly) has feline acne and her Mom uses a natural wash to clear it up...you might e-mail the.

Hope you feel better in a few days and maybe your mum will give you some very nice treats.

Fui, I feel a little bad for you too. But honestly, not TOO bad considering you got liver treats at the vets! I hope that sore heals quickly - paws up for cooperating!

Fui, we're sorry to hear this. I get chin acne too sometimes. I've been lucky so far that I haven't had any abcesses. Well, at least you got some treats out of it!!

Hi Fui,

Way to go at the V-E-T! Treats are always nice, aren't they?

We hope your chin is all better real soon.

Happy Halloween!

Poor Fui! That would make me put my hat on, too. Harley's chin acne seemed to get better when we added a fish oil supplement to his foods.

Hope you're already feeling better!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You are such a good boy.
Sandusky here has that problem too. Poor kitty hates it when someone washes his face and puts on the medicine.

you probably already know this but they say plastic isn't good for acne....it makes it worse...
