cheers everyone, getting ready to head back in for more fun and games, but the day release scheme is ideal, problem is infection and fever go hand in hand, and my temp was fine, but got a rotten head cold thursday night, so that's pushed me to about 37.9 and i have to stay in at 38, i'll be so pee'd off if i'm beaten by a bleeding cold.

last night tibbs climbed on to wifey's lap and settled for an hour or so. he's been curling up in the living room, and visiting us with head butts and chirps, but yesterday he actually settled. 6 dogs and cats all sleeping in the same room as us, nice to have such a social bunch ...... bit like navitron.

Mig gloves are a good 'cheap bet' for manipulating recalcitrant moggies. Probably Mig, (Moggie introductory glove) rather than Tig. (Tiger introductory glove).
It says CAT II on the gauntlet part, but I don't know if that refers to the size of the cat, or strength of the bite. Mine are a lovely blue, and I've never been bitten whilst welding.   Grin



So ........ we now have super long cat gauntlets at both locations which go up to my elbows, and best of all they are quite flexible and soft so the cats (I've had a quick test) don't seem to mind them at all.

I think I've learnt my lesson this time, just finished all the different antibiotics but have to go to the doctors (nurse) 3x per week to have my 'arm-hole' washed out and repacked as it heals from the inside out, so probably another 3 weeks of that. But arm strength is fine, and most range of movement is back, and I'm tipyng a bit batter now!

So back to the kitkats and Mr Tibbs is now one of the family, really settling in, seems to adore Vesper (the dog), and runs around the house with Bodie and Doyle (the ginga ninjas) like a true nutter. He's also discovering all the best sleeping spots:

Dog bed, what's a dog bed?




Dog bed? Sorry I've still no idea what you mean?

Definitely a lesson learned with the infection and treatment, that's pretty serious but good that you're on the mend.

Got to love those pics Mart and yes, it's good to see that you're typing batter too  facepalm

Mt Tibbs is a full on lap cat and fully integrated into the herd, perfect.

Pleased to hear that you are on the mend.
I think Mrs T was a cat in a previous life she always gets the  best sleeping spots. Grin

I remember Ted Nugent's 'Cat scratch fever', googled it and found the 'Bartonella' group of nasties.
That is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection and you are lucky to survive it; one form of Bartonella is meningitis...
I have been scratched hundreds of times by assorted felines over the years, so lucky to get away with it.
Feral moggies are less likely to be inoculated, or have systemic flea-killers in their blood-stream, so bigger risk.
As much as I love cats, I shall reconsider the way I approach straggly fleabags knowing the danger.
