Zelda Home

Today I picked up my cat Zelda at the vet after her having spent two days there.  The vet warned me to brace myself for how she looks:  all her beautiful grey fur clipped; round, scabby bald spots everywhere; and, to top it all off, the cone of shame around her neck to keep her from chewing on herself.  She's too sad looking to post a photo.

The good news is she's not terminal; the bad news is she has a severe case of ringworm. Daily medication and baths should restore her health although it will take a while for her fur to grow back.

That's a great diagnosis. Poor Zelda, she is probably so grateful you thoughtfully did not publish a photo.

She's really been through the wringer (and a vet visit is adding insult to injury according to her) but I'm glad she's on the mend now.

Her beautiful fur will be back before too long.
