the cat that got the rat got bit

Poor Lulu, she was just doing her job, killing mice and rats.

I noticed there was something wrong with her lower jaw and I checked her teeth to make sure she didn’t have a problem there, but she was eating fine and seemed happy so I left her alone, then her jaw got worse, and even though she was till eating I checked the rest of her jaw out. She had a massive swelling under her chin.

I took her to the vets and an hour later he had shaved her and lanced an abcess and drained about 10ml of stinky fluid from it. The only thing I can imagine that caused this is the rat, she’s pretty hardy and has fights with cats all the time, but have never had a problem like this, it’s only the second time in her life that I’ve had to take her to the vets outside of her yearly injections…..
