A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend's step-dad brought a kitten home from where he works part time. The kitten, who we named George, he was 4 weeks old and had icky eyes and a snotty nose. We wanted to feed him a couple of days and get his face cleaned up. Well my boyfriend's step-dad and mom's cat, Bailey, scratched George in the face, and his eye started to bleed. George was taken back to the farm and left over night, we brought him back the next day and the eye where he got scratched was huge and swollen with a puss colored film over his eye. Later that night, we were cleaning his face off and he started to clean his face. His claw caught the film on the bad eye, and he literally tore his eyeball out.
He went to the vet the next morning and they said he had a ruptured eye ball. They took the rest of the eye out and sewed it shut so it could heal a little bit. He was put on antibiotics for the next two weeks. Tomorrow he goes back to get his one stitch out and then we go from there. The vet said we can either leave the eye socket open, or permanently sew it shut. Here are some pictures of the feisty little guy we call George :)
