I bit my human artist!

Rocky: Uh oh. I'm in the doghouse bigtime, doing serious penance ... This morning I bit my human artist, sank my teeth all the way to the bone ... I know, I know, a CEO shouldn't assault his employees, but sometimes I just can't help myself. I was just trying to get her out of bed - we have work to do! I didn't mean to hurt her.

I have a biting problem. My human artist says this is because I was only one day old when I was rescued, and since I was bottle-fed and had no siblings, I didn't learn from a mamacat not to bite hard, and didn't learn proper social behavior from siblings.

My staff says I have to join Bite-aholics Anonymous and enroll in anger management and stress reduction classes to calm down my CatType A personality. In the meantime, my human artist is telling me her daughter Tiffany had a cat bite just like this when she was young and she ended up in the hospital for two weeks and almost lost her hand. Oh my, I don't want that to happen! I really, really, really am sorry.

Uh ohhh...Rocky, it must be very stressful being a CEO!

We hope your human artist heals quickly!

Aoise said...

Ouch Rocky that is a nasty looking bite. I bet you would have been a major hunter! I hope your person is okay afterwards.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Oh no...looks like a workers comp claim to us! Hope your bitee went to the doctors and got on antibiotics right away...if Teri got a bite at work at the cat hospital where she works...she would have to go to the human vets and get on Augmentin usually...cat bites are very serious especially there. You are right about the mommycat (and littermates) teaching their kittens what's socially acceptable when it comes to biting...we see lots of kitties like you where I work and it's sometimes hard to teach them as adults...we hope you can learn though

Tristan and Crikey said...

Our Mama says that cat bites are serious, so please keep a close watch on your hand, friend.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, no! Your mom is correct about you not learning proper social skills from your mom and siblings. But .... OUCH! We hope you really are sorry.

We hope your human artist is okay.

Max said...

Doood! Make her go to the people stabby guy! Cat bites can be nasty nasty things... Well, Buddah's bites are. Mine are like sunshine. Truly.

The Meezers said...

Oh Rocky,we are shur that she knows you really didn't mean to hert her. She knows your history so we is shur that she will forgive you. but please make her go to the bean v-e-t for shots or something so that she doesn't get a 'fekshun.

I got bit really bad by my neighbor's cat about 25 years ago. The cat was in a bad spot and I tried to save her...then the neighbor blamed me for getting bit! What a maroon. Those peeps should never had had pets anyways. They let their dog die in the car. In the summer. Glad they moved. But the shots I had to get were not fun after my arm swelled up very bad. Maybe that is why I am weird now? With all these animals?

Daisy said...

Oh noes! Oh RockyBlocky, that was a little mistake you made. Be sure to tell her you are very sorry. I know she won't be mad at you. But I think she should go to the doctor, because deep cat bites can be very dangerous!

Freya's Staff said...

Oh Dear Rocky... Be sure to say you're very sorry, as I'm sure your momacat will be feeling as sad as you right now too!

Hope you feel like behaving better tomorrow!

Parker said...

Uh Oh.
Rocky, I know you are sorry, but please try and not do that again.
Our bites are very bad for humans!

Please be careful, I too ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks with a bite to my hand. And ended up with cat scratch fever after that! Cat bites are very dangerous. Even though I cleaned it thoroughly + went to the doc, the next day I was in the hospital. Good Luck.

Your Mom MUST go right away to a doctor and get onto antibiotics. Cat bites are very serious. Especially if it went to the bone.

Good luck. Rocky, sorry but you belong in the doghouse for a little while for this.

peggy and The Cats said...

Oh Rocky, That's a real hurty for your mom. Tell her if she hasn't already to go to her Dr. and get on some Augmentin. Mom waited 3 days before she went and it took twice as long to get better and Jeannie only bit her one spot. Mom's finger looked like a hotdog it was so swollen.

catsynth said...

That looks like it really hurts. Humans are more sensitive to bites like that than cats.

It's interesting, I used to have a male cat that was bottlefed from an infant and had no siblings, and he was quite a nipper.

Angel said...

That looks bad! I hope you are taking care of it. I am sure Rocky does not understand how bad this can be!

Eric and Flynn said...

Ouch that looks painful. When our mum used to work for a vet many years ago, he was very strict on his animal nurses keeping up to date with their anti tet. shots. Kitty bites very easily become infected.
I used to have a biting problem and wouldn't stop it, then mum started biting me back. Not hard, but enough to make me know I didn't like it.She thinks I didn't realise how much it hurt her.

Boy n Beethoven said...

Oh dear Wocky! I think we both have the same pwobwem! Wet's go to Bite-ahowics Anonymous together! I was tiny when I was wescued too and I also never wearned that I was biting too hard. Most of the time I could contwol mineself, but once in a while, once in a while wike you Wocky, I forget. It's not our fault at all, Wocky!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

OOo Ouch...oh Rocky, dat was bad dude. Hope yoor mom haf some aunty-bio-tiks to take. Where mom volunteers if someone gets bited or scratched dey make dem soak it in bleach water right away but dem bites is kinda deep. We know yoo din't mean it but still, whoa.

Renae & Count Chocula said...

Mommy sends her sympathy. She knows how bad it can hurt and that looks like a bad one. Rocky, you better give extra purrs to help heal your staff. Purrs and prayers for a speedy and safe recovery.

The Cat Realm said...

Oh gosh - that looks serious! We know you didn't mean it.... Our Anastasia had a claw problem like that - did not know to be careful with those, she was feral. And the staff always forgave her.... We are glad you have an understanding human too! But try and not do it again!

Karen Jo said...

Oh, dear, that looks serious. I hope your Mom went to the doctor right away. I know you didn't mean it, Rocky, and your Mom knows that, too, but really try to restrain yourself in the future.

Chesney Cats said...

Yeah, we know you're sorry, but there goes your bail-out! Your human artist is gonna need all that money for medical bills....not to mention pain & suffering!

We're purring that she heals up quickly so she can get back to work for you. Now Rocky, the next time you get upset take deep breaths & count to 10, OK?

Charlemagne and Tamar said...

Oh dear! We know that you're sorry - just like I'm sorry when I scratch Daddy during snuggle time (Tamar).

We hope that your mommie is okay and that she gets some medicine to make sure she doesn't get an infection.

Lots of purrs and snuggles should help get you back in her good graces.

Fin said...

Hi I haven't been by in a bit - Rocky you really did a job on your human - hope it wasn't the petting hand.

Cory said...

Oh no, bite-a-holics anonymous...that sounds serious. Hope your momma's hand is doing better soon.

Derby said...

Rocky!!!!! I like to put the bitey on mum, but not that hard. I don't think I have ever even broken her skin. Maybe just a scratch.

So take a chill pilll dude.

jeanne said...

Oh, wow, that looks bad! I do hope you went to the doctor...

Don't hiss any more!!
