Well Mom came on Thursday night with this!
She said someone called her because he had been seen in an industrial area for about a week. The lady who called he said that she feeds the feral cats there and he had been hanging around. Well he was pretty gross and smelled awful!! Mom made him take 2 baths in a row, we don’t think he ws very happy about it either. But then he looked like this!
Mom took him to the V*E*T and they did a bunch of tests. It seems that he is almost completely blind, sees shadows and has some major neurological problems. Has trouble eating, can only lap soft food, walks funny like he is drunk, spins and flops over. He seems to have control of his bladder. So right now he is on antibiotics and living with us. He mainly stays in my big crate with a bed and water and potty pads. Unless moms home and then he sits on her lap, and she takes him in the back yard so he can wander and smell things. After a couple days he is less nervous and loves momma.
But she doesn’t think he can stay, and the V*E*T said maybe he should go to the rainbow bridge. But we got some good news yesterday, that maybe one of the ladies who works for th V*E*T who met him might take him to live with her and see how he does. She can bring him to work with her. He is only 6 pounds!!! Momma takes him back on Wednesday to see if the antibiotics might have helped. She is calling him Bug since he is so small has big eyes and walks funny like a bug!
Someone dumped him where he was living, since in his condition he probably couldn’t have traveled very far and there are no house for miles around there. Also we are not sure what caused the problems, could be trauma from being thrown from a car, untreated distemper which untreated long-term can cause neurological problems, a genetic condition or infection.
