Re: Feral with Bad Wound
My plan is to try tonight to trap him. I've spoken to a local vet who works on ferals and can asses his wound and tell me what it needs (I get the impression looking at it that it will need surgical cleaning and cutting away of dead tissue, and either to be dressed and me sent home with something to put on it and antibiotcs, or he might need some kind of graft, there is some missing skin...
They said they would try to work with my budget, and also that there are some pledge organizations that might help, so I have yet to do the research on that but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I just don't think it's fair, I know he must have been attacked by a dog, other cat, or possum, since all are plentiful around here. He's been here a long time, getting along ok, I want him to keep getting along, only better than ok.
Thank you so much for the information and suggestions. I'm looking forward to him feeling better and getting over this.
