Due to my uncouth initial forays into getting blood samples from Santino's ears, one ear looks like it has little hemorrhages near the "sweet spot" and the other has them a bit farther in. These might be from the times when I accidentally hit a vein. I know humans with diabetes are not very good at healing if they get an injury on their extremities, and are more prone to infection. Is it possible for cats to get an infection from unskilled pokes, or to have a harder time healing from said pokes? Should I give Santino's ears a break? I tend to be more busy during the week anyway, so I might welcome a break.
