Bandit is a cat that came into our shelter on Saturday. He's an unneutered male 2-3 years old. He, a female cat we named Tessa & her 2 kittens were left at the door in a box. Tessa doesn't want to eat, but is mostly scared, the kittens are just fine. Bandit is probably in the worst shape. He has a bad URI, with bronchitis & an infected bite wound on his right hip. I ended up taking him to a vet last night because he was so lethargic & the infection scared me & the shelter director. I had already given him 100 sub-q & injectable antibiotics. There wasn't much the vet could do, but she did clean the wound up a little bit & over time the antibiotics must have kicked in because by the time we got back to the shelter he was eating like crazy. He still needs to go into a vet today to have the wound cleaned up, but given his URI the sedation is a risk. Through all of the poking & proding he was an angel & purred every time he was petting. Please send vibes that this sweet boy pulls through & finds the home he deserves!!!
