On 28/6/2013, I found an injured male cat at my doorstep. He is one of the strays I feed. There was a bad wound on his front left leg. I tried applying medication on his wound and caged him up for recovery for a few days. However, there was no improvement and the cat was suffering. I decided to bring him to the vet and the vet told me that his wound was badly infected by bacteria. The vet told me that blood test, surgery, drips, antibiotics, etc were required to treat the cat. (please see attached photos) And, it would take one to two months to heal.
During that period of time, the vet found out that he was a stray cat, hence he advised me to neuter the cat. However, the cat’s medical expenses have already exceeded my financial capacity (RM2,000++). The vet was kind enough to perform the neutering procedure for free.
The cat was discharged on 11/8/2013. The vet gave me discount on the hospitalization charges, but the final bill came to RM2550
After the cat has come home, he wounded his neck due to excessive scratching. I house him temporary at my car porch and clean his wound daily.
I wanted to save the cat although he is just a stray. Unfortunately, I have limited financial capacity. I have an adopted cat and 3 other stray cats to look after. One of them is pregnant.
I hope to get subsidy from your organisation and I also hope the cat will recover soon.
AnimalCare is also assisting with a subsidy.
