Hurley The Great

Remember Hurley, my daughter's big ,brave Himalayan? he is one that stays in her room most of the day waiting for her to come home from school and work. He also doesnt like to go outside after dark. We found out why. He isnt as tough as he lets on. He has a huge head and and very large paws, but a baby at heart. A few nights ago, he went out, and then sudddenly made a mad dash into the doggy door. He only made it part way in when something grabbed him from behind and jerked his butt back outside. My daughter's boyfriend quickly went out to his rescue. He was being attacked by another cat. The boyfriend had a fight on his hands to get the stray off. Anyway. Hurley ended up with a few battle scars. The boyfirend didnt fare much better :) He had some hair missing around one eyebrow, and in a day or two his eye had started to get a little puffy and watery. She took him to the vet, who gave him some drops and a shot of an antibiotic. Hurley is a little strange tho, when they stuck the needle in he suddenly started purring .... loudly, lol.
I wonder if he is secretly looking forward to his next vet trip?
