  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • For the last year I seem to be bruising a lot easier and any cut I get takes for ever to heal. My kitten scratched me the other day and I had to wrap my hand to get to a sink to put it under water and try to make the bleeding stop. I wrapped it completely in guaze to make it stop. It actually scared me to see so much blood from a cat scratch! It looked like someone had been stabbed. The next day my hand swelled up and bruised like it had been hit with a hammer!
