I generally clean the cut with Hydrogen Peroxide, poured directly on the cut. Then either antibiotic ointment or an herbal, Golden Seal powder or liquid.

Hello everyone,
I've been on the list for several months but haven't posted anything. My neighbor and I are taking care of 4 FeLV cats. Their mother was a stray cat in our neighborhood and had kittens in our garage. I was just trying to cut a mat out of one of them, just under her front leg, and accidentally cut her skin. I feel so bad. I've never done that before to any pet. It bled a little but its just the skin that was cut. We put some Neosporin on it and a little gauze bandage. We didn't have any gauze to wrap around the bandage to keep it on so I cut a clean Handiwipe in strips and tied it on. I'm just wondering if that's the right thing to do. Do you think I need to take her to the vet right away or can we just watch it for a few days? I don't want to stress her by taking her to the vet if I don't have to. I have 2 cats of my own and have had quite a few vet bills lately too. I don't need any more but I want to do the right thing too. How do you treat cuts in a FeLV cat? She's almost 2 years old. I'm becoming quite a worrier. We have already lost 2 of the kittens we originally had so I'm on this list to learn as much as I can. Originally my vet told us they were FIV and not FeLV but I found out too late for the first one that that's not the case. I changed vets and I have someone I can trust now. My heart and prayers go out to all of you who have lost little ones lately. I cry ever time I read about them and almost got off the list because it's so painful but I thought I better stay on to learn as much as I can. Thanks for any advice you have.

Linda
