It took almost a year for all the inflammation to settle down with my bite. My mri later showed the ligament to my thumb had torn .

OMG.  I’m so sorry to hear that happened. Did the pain go all over the place to spots that were nowhere even near the actual bite marks?  How is it now?

I'm glad Mabel is doing better now, rbauer. I sure hope all problems with your hand resolve soon, too.

Mabel is having diarrhea again on Hills I/d dry and limited ingredient instinct turkey pouches.  Is there a dry I can give her that is well known for stopping or improving this?  Thanks.

I use royal canin hairball for Stormy's loose stools. I think the higher fiber is what helps her. It's not limited ingredients though. Maybe try adding some pumpkin to the wet?

Looked at the ingredients and think you’re really onto something with that brand/formula.  There’s all different kinds of fiber in it that would absorb excess water and bind her up.  I’m off to Petsmart soon.   The other one I was looking at was blue buffalo sensitive stomach. That one has Brown Rice, Oatmeal, Barley, Pea Protein, Peas and probiotics. Think the royal Canin you recommended might be a little better.

Couldn't decide so bought them both.  Will see which kibble she likes better and can chew her few teeth   Smiley

Yes the pain was in places not near the bite . It's fine now ,but I did have a steroid shot for the pain in my thumb. I honestly believe it was inflammation & bacteria & just needed time to go away .Make sure you get more antibiotics if you have any swelling or redness anywhere though .

Glad to hear it eventually went away.  It’s only been about a month and a half for me, so maybe I’m expecting too much too soon.  I start hand therapy with the physical therapist tomorrow.  The whole experience has changed how I interact with other cats now.  For example, there was a friendly young kitten/teenager cat at the outdoor colony I take care of recently. Unlike the older adult cats that step back when I am present, she would stroll right up to me and would often try to get the friskies can right out if my hand before I could even put the food down.  I’ve been afraid to get close to her ever since my accident.  Have also been afraid to handle my dad’s cat because it’s very nippy and once put him in the hospital as well.  Never gave the risk of bites a second thought before this happened.
