De-matting injury

I have some really bad mats and knots that Mom and Dad have been working on. Last night they were trying to get some off my belly. Dad had gotten a bunch of hair and clumps, but the mat was really close to the skin. Well, Dad got closer with the scissors than he realized and grazed me slightly. I fussed, but didn't run off so Dad didn't even realize he snipped me. But after I got up Mom saw a little red on my tummy (about the size of a dime or a nickle). I wasn't bleeding, exactly, but just a little ooze or seep of blood. Just enough to get them excited. Mom held a cold wet cloth to my tummy and cleaned me up, and Dad checked it this morning and cleaned it again. Other than having a bald spot that I want left alone, it looks OK. But don't you know I'm going to work this for all kinds of extra treats and attention.

Oh man, they OWE you. I'm thinking on the scale of real live fresh dead things to nom on. Like shrimp and steak. Whichever you prefer. Me, I would prefer both...

Oh YEAH, work it! You deserve LOTS of extra treats and attention... maybe some gifts for that terrible injury!

The mom did the same thing to one of the cats that came before us. She felt so bad! We hope you get lots of treats...even if it didn't really hurt much.

As well you should! Humans are soooo malleable when there's guilt involved (SCORE!).

You sound like Patches. He is so matted it is crazy. Why he doesn't groom himself we will never know. He never has. Maybe his momma cat never taught him when he was a wee kit. He will probably get a lion cut soon. But he loves those because as you know those mats hurt and pull on the skin. -Shaggy
