    Yeah, if you can smell it, the abcess probably already burst on its own.

    Which is a good thing, because at least it's draining. But she still needs some antibiotics.

    Yes, that smell is pus. She definitely has an abcess and they can be deadly if not treated. It sounds like it's pretty far gone, that's why I don't think you should wait.

    I'm sorry about your kitty, Ms. Deb. Let me know if I can help.

    I'm so relieved to hear that, msdebagain. Try looking against walls -- one of my cats used to always go and face the wall -- in closets, any place dark and hard to get at. I doubt you can tempt her with food at this point, but you might try with a favourite treat.

    If she can find her, would warm salt water compresses help the infection?
    Kind of like soaking a foot wound does?

    It might help, but it would sting like hell. You'd have to have at least two people to hold her down and they'd better be wearing oven mitts or some kind of thick gloves!

    I'm sorry to hear this. I know how scary it is. One of my cats jumped in the sink one morning and I noticed this huge, gaping wound on the side of his face/neck that looked like a big piece of gooey flesh hanging off. Well, I poured hydrogen peroxide on it (held him down, of course) and took him to the doctor. They cleaned it up and informed me it was an abcess that had burst on its own. The body makes a wall around the injury to protect it from the rest of the body. I had no idea how his injury happened in the first place, most likely it was a scuffle.

    Each of my cats has hidden when ill. They don't like to be messed with. Is kitty afraid of vacuums? If so, try to make some noise to scare her out of her space so you (with some help) can put her in a carrier or at least confine her to one room.

    I hope things get better soon.
