We had our first major kitty attack tonight. I was in the bathroom when the incident occurred. All I know is that I heard a shriek followed by crying. Loud and intense crying.
Little man got his first, major injury from one of the cats.
I found him next to the couch and Ludo was under the couch. Here is what I am thinking happened - I think that Joe was headed to Ludo (as he always is - slow poke "chases" the cats around every chance he gets), Ludo was sleeping, got startled and instinctively scratched him. It bled an awful lot. More than I would have thought it would.
I never had Ludo (foreground) declawed when he was younger. I rescued him when he was almost a year old and I didn't have any reason to have his claws removed. I certainly never thought I'd have two kids by age 26. I figured Ludo would be a mellow, older cat by the time I had kids to worry about!
I suppose we will have to keep a closer eye on both kids and cats from here on out!
