Lightning got into a fight with a strap on a box and it won. She managed to rip off nearly her entire nail. Mom was great at doctoring her up and did everything she could to make Lightning comfy. There was a LOT of blood.
In the morning we took her to the vet to have it looked at. The vet was pleased with the medical attention Lightning had received already. He looked at the blood toe and gave us a pat on the back for quick action. He got rewrapped and sent home to heal.
She absolutely doesn’t like her “boot”. She already chewed and shook this one off so Mom wrapped her leg up further and it seems to have held.
Poor kitty was exhausted.
*Update. After 5 days of the boot she is boot free. Her toe is healing well and no signs of infection. I think we are in the clear!
