    Not as serious as the title would suggest, but Lola (see Sig) has got a little cut under her chin, I'm guessing from a playfight with Charlie, there is a tiny bit of blood...

    ...Is there anything I should do? Should I wash it? Disinfect it somehow?

    Or just leave it and let it heal? They are due to vets on Tuesday anyway, so do you think it's OK to leave it until then?????

    TIA

    Personally Dave I would leave well alone if its only a lickle cut. The kitty will wash itself and that on its own usually has great healing powers. Boiled cooled water will help to make sure there are no foreign bodies lying in the cut. If it was a larger gash I would on insist on immediate vet intervention without the wait :eek:

    Aah bless:)Leave it ,i'm sure being that it's tiny it will be gone soon enough:)Yeah i wouldn't go putting anything other than a bit of water on it as it could make a pea a football.
