L’œil maudit

Nooooooo. Oh. Mon. Dieu.

Wouldn’t you just know it: after the fur initially grew back to the point of almost being normal again, Louis Catorze’s evil eye bald patch is now returning. Just in time for the spooky season.

Black (white?) hole.

At the moment it just looks like a hole. But, no doubt, it will mutate and evolve during the next few weeks, drawing strength from the unseen dark forces of the season. And, by the time Hallowe’en arrives it will be a fully formed eye, following me creepily around the room even when Catorze is asleep.

I am not rushing him to the vet just yet because, at the moment, it doesn’t seem to be bothering the little sod. I hope it won’t get worse, though. The next month is such a busy one for me, and I really could do without having to daub medication onto a cat who doesn’t want to be daubed.

Please send thoughts and prayers. Please also send crucifixes and holy water, if you have them.

    1. What’s going on with WordPress? It went through a phase of not letting me reply to comments so I was very worried that everyone would think me rude.

    1. Absolutely nobody knows. But I’m sure Sa Maj will telepathically send the answer to his frère from another mère. 🐈‍⬛

    1. It’s kind of on his shoulder, and he’s deffo not overgrooming. There’s no sign of soreness, redness, broken skin, lumpiness, nothing. Just an evil eye!

  1. Is there some plant going to seed at the time ? Do you use one of those flea treatments that you put on the skin ? Sometimes those take the fur off. Otherwise – purrayers and Power of the Paw !

    1. I do use that flea treatment, but it doesn’t go anywhere near that part of his body. What a silly sod he is.
