As you'll know if you read the entry on Meet Bobby, he was a stray cat who just started showing up. He was getting more and more comfortable with people and was settling in nicely. I got him signed up for the Big Fix for him to get neutered and get his shots. Then I was going to start posting notices to find him a new home.
I got more and more worried about Bobby. He came in with a big abscess on his ear that was bleeding and leaking all over. Kristin and I both did what we could to clean him up, but it hurt him and he started avoiding us again. His ear finally started to heal, but then he came in with another abscess on his cheek. He was still eating OK, but I could tell it hurt him.
Before anyone freaks out, the animal shelter here in Ivins is a No Kill shelter with an extremely high adoption rate. I would never have considered this otherwise. He is safe and has a chance to heal. And the volunteers there are pros at socializing the animals. I donated the funds to get him treated and neutered and as soon as he is out of quarantine I will do what I can to find him a home.
