This is a question Body Horror

Mictoboy writes, "I once picked a spot on my cheek only for a half-inch long ingrown hair to coil out covered in pus."

How has your own body made you recoil in disgust?

Not me. And not even human so technically not fitting the brief.
However I think you may agree upon reading that I can shoe-horn this one.

My missus had a cat. Called Blush. I ran him over and we had to have him put down. But that's another story.

Now as any feline owner may know - when a cat gets an abscess (frequently from fighting and whatnot) it generally ends up as a warm lump on the cat's body which can often erupt in a volcano of foul-smelling, bloody pus. The cat also tends to find these areas particularly painful and will usually scratch and bite if these sites are inspected, let alone squeezed or manipulated.

One evening my wife and I were sitting on our bed with Blush - this was pre-bairn.
My missus feels a strange lump on Blush's noggin. She finds a scabby bit right on top and unconsciously picks at it. It pops off. With a little force. Which is a slight surprise to her. She tugs at it with a little more force and suddenly a small white worm of something squirms out of the wound.
We gently prised apart the skin on his head between his ears - what was a "worm" turned into a solid lump that heads skywards in a slow but inexorable way.
So we gave it a gentle squeeze. A solid core the shape of the wound rose up and slowly curled over and was supplemented by some of the foulest smelling greeny, blood ooze that you could imagine.
All the while Blush sat there quietly purring.
I would imagine that having a swelling on your skull would hurt. I know from experience that squeezing a swelling right next your scalp fucking twinges. A LOT!
Yet he sat there apparently unfazed as we rather disgustedly mopped up this abscess that had clearly been there for at least a few days.

1. You are disgusting people.
2. You did this in your fucking bed? What is the matter with you?
3. If you don't have an actual story, don't post. In fact, just don't post.

For you -
more than happy to oblige.

1. When I worry about being judged by the likes of you - well, suffice to say I'll give up posting to sites like this.
2. Seeing as we had no idea of the outcome, the best we could was grab some old towels and put them under him. Which we did.
3. So your interesting, original story this week (and the last few months worth of /qotw) is?

I only ask because you rarely actually post a genuine answer to the question. Mostly you just post your snide commentary.
Which you and some of the people who come here think is funny (and sometimes, on the rare occasion, is). But for the most part as far as I have seen - you don't have many tales to tell.

That's ok, I wouldn't feel too bad either if I were you.

I llke the story
Our cat used to get the same thing. It was rarely placid though.

This old fella had his fair share of abscesses
but this one definitely broke the mould in terms of "grossness".

It's spelled 'unfazed' everywhere.

Is this a uniquely catty thing?
I'm pretty sure neither of our dogs ever had squelchy abscesses, though we did keep them locked up in a padded kennel and made them wear booties during walks.*

*not entirely true

I found an interesting article
that explains it far better than I could - here.

To be honest
when this story lurched towards you and Mrs McUW in bed I was greatly relieved when all you did was milk a cat's head.

I think that's where rory was starting off with too!
I guess both of you ended up with some relief.
