And a good morning to you!

It was a nice leisurely Sunday morning in bed. The kids were downstairs fighting about everything playing beautifully together. I was counting the minutes in my head until I had no choice but to get up or be late. Suddenly our vicious bobcat sweet, timid kitty, who had been sleeping on our headboard, was spooked or lost her footing and landed scratching and clawing on Rick's head! Yes, his head while he was trying to sleep and tune out the sweet children downstairs. I caught part of it out of the corner of my eye and knew right away it wasn't going to be pretty. Once he pulled his hand away we were able to get the blood partially cleared away and see the damage. Let's just say I'm sparing you the pictures for a reason! A little stronger and he might have lost his earlobe! She got him from the side of his head all the way out to the edge of the earlobe and probably about half way through. There were also three long scratches (about 5 inches) down his chest, one about the same length on his neck and another smaller one on his arm! The blood was definitely flowing. In the end it was determined that he should probably go in to have it checked out. A tetanus booster, antibiotic, lots of cleaning and gobs of medical glue later he finally arrived home with minutes to spare before we had to run back out to Caden's football game.
So, how was your morning?

That is horrible! So how does he explain that one at work? Does the cat get to sleep in your room still? I am trying not to laugh!!!
