Re: The Cat fell in motor oil

Hi Booner72,

 

You may want to call a some vets and cat groomers for some advice (just in case there is still some residue lingering around, especially). 

 

Good luck :smileyhappy:

Re: The Cat fell in motor oil

Awwwww poor cat, I bet that was a heck of a mess to clean up, not just the cat, I mean the surrounding areas the cat walked around as well.

 

I know if I tried to put my cat under water (meaning giving her a bath) she would FLIP OUT, most likely giving me a certain trip to the hospital for stitches, she's a nice cat, but I have seen her claws, and they are uhm sharp.

 

She's terrified of thunder and one time I went to pick her up and at the very second I got her in my arms it thundered and she tore my arms to pieces trying to scramble for a place to hide, I tell you this, it looked like I got into a fight with a Lion, I was bleeding so bad it took like three hours for it to stop and had about 9 scratches on both arms that most likely were very close to needing stitches.

 

I hope your kitty will be just fine.

I do not like cats!  They are too creepy, carry too much dander and jump and crawl everywhere.   I  miss my Shih Tzu droopy!!

Saying I do not like cats is not going off topic.  Cats jump and crawl everywhere.  That's probably how the OP's cat ended up in oil.  But if you would like to delete it or anything I post or say without hesitation do it. 

thanks!

You don't like cats and you think they are creepy. Fine! The discussion in this thread is about a cat having a bad accident. The OP was asking for help and some of your statements weren't supportive.

Odds are, you will find the glasses the day you pick them up.

IDEA! Got any pics of the cat before and after?  You should send them to Dawn or at least write them a letter saying how their product saved your cat's coat and life. Companies can be generous sometimes, especially to a thankful and valued customer. You may even get coupons or rebates in the mail from them... so at least you are saving money somewhere.

 

Also, I would defintely send the thank you by snail mail, more personal that way.I sent a written thank you to a vitamin company once, and got an appreciative  response with tons of rebates etc.

 

Also, if you DO find the glasses- at least now you will have a back-up pair! (silver lining?)

Sharing is caring.

Our poor cat fell, somehow, into an oil barrel that had motor oil in it.  His long fur is coated.  What can I do?


Have you considered shaving him?
