Am i the only one struggling to pucture how this would happen?
83, it is actually recommended to have a face cloth over the burn area with the ice on top of that, or having the burn area placed in a bowl of ice water until there is no more heat felt on the hand. Just because it doesn't feel like it's burning anymore, doesn't mean it isn't. - 2 separate First Aid Classes for work and again for another job. Even though I already had it.
As bad as it sounds I let my pets hurt themselves in something they do frequently that they shouldn't. Animals are quite good at learning from mistakes. I know it never said its happened before, just saying a simple solution. Hope the hand feels better.
A little bump on the nose if they accidentally run into something and serious burns caused by an iron are two completely different things. I grew up on a farm. You do your best to keep your animals safe. Also, some animals are just too dumb for their own good and cannot logically produce a solution to their predicament. Others are way too intelligent that they can hurt themselves proving it.
Your cats an evil mastermind it wanted you to burn your hand. Anyways run it under cold water for about 10-20mins.
