My friend's place... feral...

Possible vet issues

The same crew that rescued Gypsy (now Doris) and 2 other cats now have a feral on the premises. They call him Midnight, and he's wonderfully black, though his fur could use some grooming. He lives in a barn/garage/shed near the property., and today, Maggie treated him to some salmon! She has to put it down and walk away.

Midnight has an apparent bite on his side...

Ahhh a black kitty! So kind of you guys to take him into your care!

I would really encourage you to trap and take Midnight to a vet right away. That nasty bite can become infected. The vet can clean it out and give him a Convenia shot which is an antibiotic that last a week. Saving you from trying to get meds down him in his food every day. Plus while he is there clip the family jewels and tip his ear!

I hope all goes well for Midnight. Ill check back to see how he is doing.

Maggie finally took Midnight to the vet, today. It would appear he has an upper respiratory infection. I think he's staying overnight...

This is the season for U.R.I.

Midnight has a U.R.I. and serious sinus problems. I told Maggie to make sure he gets rest, and to feed him CAT FOOD.
