Unfortunately, he lept onto her backside, giving her a full "paw" scratch on her hip, along with random deep scratches on her legs, and um, butt. I'm peroxiding the hell out of them, they continue to foam copiously and have puffed up a little. I also plan to put antibiotic lotion on them and maybe antibiotic bandaids. Is there anything else I should be doing, beyond seeing a doctor (she's uninsured), besides lots of consistent cleaning and treatment? Huck is an indoor cat. My friend is in lots of pain.
