UPDATE 20 July 08
I’ve started calling him ‘Bob’ . He’s an old cat around my workplace who is frequently fed by a worker. I do keep an eye out for him, but never really needed to interfere in his well-being until this happened.
Fortunately, there are no secondary issues with his injury. But it’s deep & very large, so it needs intensive care until it covers up more. Hopefully he can be discharged soon, however it really depends on the vet’s assessment again in due time. It’s expected to be more than 1 week at least. Have to see his rate of progress. His wound is also in a very sensitive spot, making it hard to tend to him as he will snap in pain. Furthermore, his head movement may also re-open the wound or scrape against it, hampering recovery.
I have started to look for an experienced foster to take care of him upon discharge. Really need an experienced one as Bob is not too friendly & will be constantly trying to escape. His painful wound is also going to make him hard to handle. Hope someone
