Barn kitty was a bit eager to get goodies and so she brought her paw up and one of her nails hoked me! It's been about 5 minutes and now this darn quarter inch scratch has turned the tip of my finger red, with a eraser sized circle of white surrounding the darn cut. I should know better than to do anything other than drop food on the floor for the cat! I'm going to have a swollen finger for a few hours now!!! There's a reason I can't pet cats or have them inside!
