Caught in the middle

This is not a tattoo, it's the result of getting caught between my cat, Oscar Snuggles, King of Tidewater, attempting to go outside and our neighbor's d.o.g. trying to come inside. Oscar was only protecting his territory, but I was the one injured. I think Mud Flap, the d.o.g. got smacked, because she let out a yelp. Actually, the d.o.g.'s name is Muffin, but we call her Mud Flap, because she is covered in red mud from our red Georgia clay. Our neighbor's son, who has been away three weeks attending a special camp for gifted children, came to visit and he brought Mud Flap with him. We saw him approaching the back door so I went to answer to door, but Oscar thought I was going to open the door to let him outside, only to come face to face with a d.o.g. It wasn't fun, believe me.

Yikes! That looks mighty painful.

On a positive(?) note...your iodine, flip-flops, and toe nails all match very nicely!

Remind me to address Oscar Snuggles, King of Tidewater as Sir. When kitties get excited things tend to get interesting. I agree, you are fashionably color coordinated.

Mud Flap is a wonderful name for a dog. I hope I can remember it.

Oh boy, that looks sore.
We have a similar problem since Mish moved upstairs, her cat Liat and my cat Mot don't get along. Mot knocked me down three stairs trying to get at Liat. It's been fun.

That looks really painful Tee.
