I have just had an email from Chris at the Cattery. She titled it Trevor, which I really hope isn’t going to be the cat’s name, but maybe it was just to signal his gender. I’ve been on tenterhooks all day wondering how the cat had got on at the vet’s.
Anyway, this is what she says:
yes he is a boy…
& not very old either, probably about 3-4
they think he must have been trapped somewhere, one of the front leg wounds is a burst abscess
the hocks have a build up of being somewhere filthy & sitting in urine.
he has had antibiotics, painkillers
he also has a very runny tummy, but some of that food from your friend is just right for him!
he needs his wounds bathed in hibiscrub every day.
they will see him next week, he may have to have the tissue on the front leg or legs operated on, so we shall see how the infection heals.
just as well MasterB told you about him!
The food and the friend reference is about Octavia, who went independently to the Cattery yesterday morning to donate food that she had had for Claud.
I have nothing against the name Trevor, but he looks more like an Inigo or a Henry to me.
I have only respect for the Cattery folk. It looks like Trevor/Inigo/Henry could be with them for quite a while unless someone is prepared to foster him. His treatment is not going to be cheap. Let’s hope it signals to start of this boy being valued and loved.
