I spent 10 days or so making daily visit's to a friend's cat while he and his GF were in Mexico. This guy does love his cat George, and is a kind person, but just isn't really educated about various cat things.
George is a beautiful (handsome?) grey and white boy, longhair - but the hair isn't thin and static-filled - it is very thick and woolly and prone to mats on his back near the tail, and his flanks.
Also - on his head I noticed a wound on his head, next to the back of the left ear. It had scabbed over - I used some coconut oil on it gently, and got the black scabbing off (the crumbly stuff, not a big solid one). It reminded me of a BB pellet severely grazing the skull, not hitting it directly.
According to George's owner, he has had that for a while - and it NEVER bothers him, even when touched. But - neither has the owner had this checked by a vet! He is not mean, just needs educating - for example, he is more than willing to be shown better grooming tools! (Oscar and Cole were without theirs for a week or so! )
So, will be gently nagging about a vet visit and the other stuff.
But any ideas about this wound? Even when I am rubbing oil on it, it's like George doesn't notice. He is healthy, energetic, eats well and uses his box just fine.
Thanks for your input.
