I don't think she was producing much if any milk, so I fed the baby from a bottle but he still insisted on
nursing and she, as most cats do, insisted on
laying there and letting him. Anyway, the chest abcessed, it broke open, the whole left side of her chest skin was just GONE. It took about two weeks, but one day when we went to clean her, we noticed pink, healthy tissue growing. After about two more weeks, all that was left of this hideous wound was a thin pink line.
