So this is a new one for me, and I am really grossed out. One of my barn cats had a tiny wound on its neck. I assumed it had gotten into a fight with another cat. A little tiny hole was oozing pus. I thought no big deal since cats easily abcess after getting wounded in a fight. I kept cleaning it, then the cat disappeared for a few days. That's nothing new as the cats come and go as they please. The cat came home while I was at work. My daughter went to check on him and clean him up. I got a text saying that something alive was in the cat's neck. OK, so she watches too many creepy movies. I get home to find a large lump and the hole was much bigger. The hole had something dark gray in it. My daughter said she had seen it move. Now I am starting to believe her. I squeezed lightly, and this gawd awful thing poked its head out. Had the cat acted uncomfortable, I would've rushed him to the vet. Strangely, he laid his head back and just let me squeeze this horrid thing out. Of course it landed in my lap. Gag reflex!! My neighbors have cattle which is nothing new, but I have never dealt with these things. Now I am terrified the horses will get the grubs! How common are they on horses, and what's the best way to control them? The cat is fine and healing nicely by the way. Oh and of course a pic of the critter.
