Cat Scratch Fever

Reynaldo has reasserted his claim to the title Worst Cat Ever. As evidenced by the three scratches on my face. The worst is nearly an inch long and uncomfortably close to my eye.

This morning I left the condo at about 10:00 to run some errands. He sneaked out between my legs and I just didn't notice him. When I got back at 11:30, there he was with one of my neighbors. My neighbor was, naturally, eager to give Reynaldo back to me. So I was juggling my cat, my keys, 8.5 lbs. of prescription cat food and my fried chicken lunch and got scratched.

I cleaned it out with peroxide immediately and have been slathering antibiotic cream on it all day. I don't think it's deep enough to leave a scar but I fear it's going to be a red slash near my left eye for quite a while.

I'm so embarrassed.
