Tucker's sore forehead

There must be something in the air that's bothering the cats. Last week, Sadie had a weepy eye (clear) and sneezed a few times. The other day, I noticed Tucker had scratched a sore above his eye. He is such a good boy and let me take some photos.



I gave him a 1/2 of Chlortrimetron* and gently cleaned the area with a Duoxo pad. I wish I knew what was irritating him.

*This is a human allergy medication. We have permission from our vet to use this on the cats as needed.

Oh, poor Tucker, that looks like it would be quite sore and/or itchy. Purrs for speedy healing!

Mom has not noticed any problems with us, but she has sneezed her head off and her eyes are watering like she is crying, but she isn't

The Baby and Maui have had terrible allergies this year, too. Poor lil' guy, that's gotta be irritating.

Poor sweet Tucker. Our mom says grass allergies are bad this year. Maybe that's the problem? Kisses and purrs to your boo-boo.

I hope Tucker's sore heals quickly! We get the itchies here sometimes, especially when the seasons change.

Mom said your forehead looks much better today, Tucker, and that made me purr.

Ernie has allergies and he's been itching a lot lately. We think it's the change of seasons that causes it.
