Skip the Bobcat Rescue

Skip the Bobcat Rescue

 

Jamie Veronica and Skip the bobcat

I was right in the middle of sending an email to LaWanna about some promotions she was dreaming up for the ChatBigCats.com site when Honey Wayton, our gift shop manager called and relayed an urgent message.

 

A woman had called to say they had found a bobcat alongside the highway and had it loose in their SUV and wanted to know what to do next because it was getting pretty mad.

 

Obviously this was their first bobcat rescue, because no one makes that mistake twice.  I called the woman who said her name was Nici and she said that the bobcat laying alongside the road had caught her eye.  Her husband, Skip had chased him down with a blanket, scooped him up and put him in the back of the car.  He was dragging his back end, so the chase wasn’t much of a challenge, but picking up a VERY mad bobcat made him a fury of claws and teeth.

 

Nici said they were two blocks from their home and that they could just leave him in the car for us to deal with, if we wanted.  As I frantically brought up a map to see that she was 2 and a half hours away, I didn’t think that was a great idea.  I asked if she had a pet carrier that they could just plop the blanketed cat into before he fully regained his senses.

 

She didn’t but her friend Lorie did.  Turns out that all three of them had visited Big Cat Rescue in the past and were eager to do anything they could to help save this skinny, crushed little bobcat.  My instructions had been to completely envelope the cat in thick blanketing and take the top off the carrier, if necessary, to accommodate the entire bundle, and then bolt the top back on.  I don’t know why that didn’t work for them, but I called Nici back a few minutes later, after starting Jamie on her way to Mt. Plymouth, and Nici said, “I hope you guys will name this bobcat Skip, after my husband because he is so brave!”

 

bobcats are sweet...when they are asleepSlashing teeth and claws be danged, Skip had managed to get a grip on the bobcat’s scruff and lifted him into the carrier.  Even though Lorie had brought over a German Shepherd sized crate the bobcat managed to go spread eagle over the entire door making it a real effort to push him into the pile of blankets in the carrier.  Kind of like baptizing a cat in a cereal bowl.

 

They covered him up and waited with him while I called every vet I could find between there and Tampa.  My concern was that the cat would go into shock before we could get him to a vet here, so I just needed someone to do a preliminary check and stabilize him.  By the time I had called a dozen vets and a couple of rehabbers two hours had passed and Jamie was nearly there.

 

Our old van is a 1998 and has seen better days.  It was shuddering so badly that Jamie Veronica had taken it into a station to check the tires but they were OK and the shudder happened even when sitting still.  I’m no mechanic, but sounded like a rod knocking to me and I was sweating whether or not the van would even make it to the Mt. Dora area, NW of Orlando.

 

Once I gave up on finding a vet near the bobcat, or even on the way home, who would give him the courtesy of even the most basic care, which I assured them I would pay in advance if necessary, I began to try and sort out what to do when he arrived in Tampa.

 

If Jamie didn’t break down, she and the bobcat should be back in town around 6 pm.  Our primary vet, Dr. Wynn had a previous engagement hosting a dozen people at 6pm.  I asked if I should contact Florida Veterinary Specialist or our secondary vet, Dr. Dave Murphy.  Dr. Wynn said she would call her clinic and see if Dr. Dave Danielson might be willing to look at the bobcat.  He had worked with native bobcats before that we brought in, and was willing to help.

 

bobcat on heating padAnother frantic call from Honey and Howard and I were on our way to the sanctuary to give tours.  We have a Free Teachers promotion going on and instead of having 2 or 3 groups of twenty showing up at 3pm we had 9 such tour groups yesterday and it turns out 12 groups today including a wedding.  It was the biggest single day the sanctuary has ever had.  It was probably good timing because otherwise I might have made Jamie crazy by calling every five minutes and asking, “Where are you now?”

 

During one such call Jamie said she would need me to bring the squeeze cage to the vet’s office.  How we were going to get the bobcat out of the carrier and into the squeeze cage was yet to be determined, but getting it there was the first step.  As soon as my tour ended I trotted across the parking lot to the on site West – Boensch Cat Hospital.  I chatted with Jack, who was recovering in the hospital from a nasty accident he had with the front gate, while I loaded the squeeze cage into my truck.  Jack is doing fine and is living proof that cats do have nine lives.

 

I ordered pizzas for pick up because I knew Jamie hadn’t eaten since this morning and didn’t know if the vet and his staff would be skipping dinner to fit this bobcat, now named Skip, into their already hectic evening schedule.   Jamie already had Skip inside and he was well on his way to a long, deep sleep by the time I arrived.  She said they had tipped the crate up on end and hand injected him through the grated door.  Within only a couple of minutes he was sleeping…or so we thought.

 

bobcat shattered pelvisOn the x-ray table he began blinking and trying to sit up, so he got a little more ketamine and went back to sleep.  The first x-ray showed the crushed pelvis and Dr. Danielson asked if we wanted to go any further as this was going to be a lot of major surgery with limited hope of recovery.  I told him we had spent more than $7500 on the last bobcat who needed plates, so we were willing to spend the money as long as the cat didn’t have any cat-killer diseases that would make him unfit for release.  The blood tests were done and he had a clean bill of health so the only other obstacle, which was determined later during a sonogram was that he has internal bleeding and his spleen may be beyond recovery.  Only a couple days of quiet rest and careful observation will let us know if he is going to live long enough to have the work done.

 

The vet tech Heather pulled ticks off Skip while Jamie checked his ears for mites, his fur for fleas and Dr. Danielson powdered his raw, purple rump, bruised badly from the impact.  Judging by his pearly white fangs we guessed his age to be around two years old and while finely muscled, he only weighed a mere 17 lbs.

 

After consulting Dr. Wynn by phone, Dr. Danielson decided to take a lot more x-rays and did all of the other work, such as flea treatment and tests, so that in a couple of days, if the spleen is still operational, Skip could go to FVS for the precision plating and pinning necessary to give him full mobility.

 

We waited to make sure he would wake up OK from the anesthesia, which he did rather quickly, and then covered him up to rest quietly in the dark over night.  Being a wild cat, close proximity to humans is very agitating.  His whole life has been based upon the knowledge that man is to be avoided at all costs.

 

If Skip makes it through the night we may set up cameras to monitor him tomorrow so that he isn’t being exposed to constant stress.

 

Jamie Veronica and Skip the bobcatWe have been posting his progress at http://www.facebook.com/bigcatrescue along with photos and we will be posting video soon.

 

You can check on him there and post your wishes for a speedy recovery.

 

I am very thankful for all the love that has been focused his way and if love can mend a broken bobcat, then Skip will surely be ready to run free again soon.

Skip’s Facebook Fans

 

Skip the Bobcat became a Facebook Phenomenon over the New Year’s Week of 2010-2011

You can join the conversation at http://www.facebook.com/bigcatrescue or watch Skip in the on site Cat Hospital at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bigcathospital

Big Cat Rescue’s posts are in bold, followed by Skip’s 193 pages of well wishes from his Facebook fans. His chat window on UStream was even more voluminous, but is deleted each time the system resets, so we were unable to capture it, but it was very much like the following.

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
Bobcat needs emergency vet! Hit by car in Mt. Plymouth at noon. Now in a carrier in a garage. Jamie is on her way from Tampa but is two hours away. I’ve called 10 local vets and no one will treat the cat for shock until we arrive. If you know a vet between Mt. Plymouth and Tampa please call them and ask if they will treat the cat until we get there.

I know it is a wild kitty, but this is what I found!! maybe it can help!!

Step 1: Examine the cat for shock; gently lift the upper lip so the gum is visible. Pale or white gums indicate the cat is almost certainly in shock and may have seri…ous internal injuries and/or bleeding. If the gums are pink the cat is probably not in shock.

Step 2: Place the cat on its side on a blanket, towel, or jacket with its head extended.

Step 3: Clear the cat’s airway.

Step 3a: Place one hand over the cat’s head so that your thumb and index finger fall just behind the long canines (fang teeth), the head resting against your palm.

Step 3b: Gently tilt the cat’s head back so its nose is pointing upward. Push your thumb toward your finger; the mouth will open.

Step 3c: Gently pull out the cat’s tongue to keep the airway open. If the cat resists your attempt to pull the tongue out, do not repeat Step 3.

Step 4: Elevate the cat’s hindquarters slightly by placing them on a pillow or folded towel.

Step 5: Stop the bleeding immediately.

Step 6: To conserve body heat, wrap the cat in a blanket or jacket.

Step 7: Transport the cat to the veterinarian immediately.See More

Here’s the thing- most likely the vets won’t treat the animal “until someone gets there” because they don’t want to be stuck with an abandoned bobcat or (even worse in their eyes) the bill if no one shows up or follows through. It’s total c…rap. They’re not afraid of the cat, theres ways of dealing with even the most fractious animals- and if its shocky enough to have been able to be crated, there is no issue!!! they’re afraid of losing $. I’ve been working in the veterinary business (and I totally mean it when I use that word “business”) for many years, and am getting out of it to do law enforcement (animal control) cuz I just can’t take the corruption and profiteering that goes on anymore. Some situations require special action. Regardless the outcome, you think it would be good PR for a vet to do this!!! Ugh, I get so disgusted talking about this. Best luck, kitty, and Godspeed.See More

Ted Heine It makes me so angry that “vets” are not bound by the same ethical and moral considerations as human doctors. They certainly charge enough, yet can pick and choose which suffering animals to help. That’s just disgusting, inhumane and EVIL!

Ted Heine PS…I realized this when my own cat had a traumatic injury which resulted in her losing a leg. The very well known veterinary school and hospital which shall remain nameless……but is in West Philadelphia….told me that they were under no obligation to treat her…and they left her linger in a cage with a shattered femur for two days until they were sure I could pay them.

Again- too ‘overloaded’ for an emergency?! I just… Have a real hard time getting right with this. Feline anatomy is feline anatomy. And it’s not like were talking about a full grown panther, here! It’s an injured, shocky bobcat. Ive dealt… with them before (previous animal control exp at calls before fish & game arrived & a drop @ the shelter), and in my experience, dealing with an unhappy adult Rottweiler is way worse, lol! It’s simply unethical. I’m saddened by it. Again, I’m wishing the best ?See More

o
Megan Watson I’m so sorry to hear about this and I agree that vets should be held by the same ethical obligations as doctors. Most sure do charge enough which causes people distress in itself. I realize people need to have the money to care for a pet but it shouldn’t be to the point of making people bankrupt. And I agree also it is very much a business. I wish the cat a speedy recovery

The faster the cat is treated the better his chances of his recovery! We’re praying!

I had an unpleasant experience with a vet once. I was trying to save two one week old kittens. They got to where they wouldn’t eat and were crying all the time. I called a local vet but they wouldn’t see the kittens because they were clos…ing early. I then called a vet 30 miles away and they told me to bring the kittens right in. One died before I got there but the vet did check out the other though didn’t give me much hope. The point is that this vet at least took the time to try to help. Needless to say, this is the vet I take all my animals to now even though it’s further for me to travel.See More

My sweet dog just had this very same thing happen about a month ago! He had internal bleeding which stopped & was reabsorbed by his body after 12 hours & we were fortunately able to afford the surgery to fix his pelvis with a plate & screws…. This is the 5th week since it’s happened & he’s made nearly a full recovery! Even uses his leg (left side pelvis was broke)
I HOPE & PRAY this Bobcat is as strong & healthy as my dog is and so helps his chances of recovery!!! See More

Eeeesssshhhh- I know you were saying earlier that you hoped it wasn’t a pelvic injury. That’s a real tough one, especially with a heavier boned, stocky, wild feline. Are they able to discern the source of the internal bleeding and correct i…t? I’m sure many decisions are being fraught over and weighed for and against relating to quality of life. I’m so glad it’s BCR making the decisions, as you guys know intimately the recovery and rehab of a wild cat better than anyone. I’m sure if quality can be acheived, you’ll be there every step of the way. We’re behind you no matter what you decide :) See More

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL Skip was hit by a car. If he heals OK he will be released back to the wild. The internal bleeding is probably just from the impact and may all reabsorb. His organs all look pretty good, except for the spleen. That’s the big worry right now. Lungs are clear. No head trauma. VERY bruised from waist to tail.

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL The best thing we can do for him for the next couple of days is keep him quiet and on pain meds and if his spleen isn’t completely trashed we will attempt a plate in the pelvis. His legs look OK. It’s broken in a very bad spot though, so I don’t know if there is much the surgeons can do. We will give him every opportunity at a second chance at freedom. Bellona’s surgeries were more than 7500.00 but we will spend that to help him be free again, if we have to.

Rebecca Vernon Oh…our boy Skippy is just a little guy. Poor little flat kitty. I hope he feels better soon, and his spleen is okay. I used to see one that hung out in the field next to the old farmhouse where I lived. I tried talking to him at first, thinking he was a housecat from a distance. As I got closer I realized, Wait a minute, that’s an awful big – and very serious-looking – kitty! He just sat there in the field looking like he thought I was crazy for talking to him… I was probably disturbing his dinner.

Marie Hopkins We had a cat who was hit by a car with resulting multiple fractures of the pelvis.

As a writer, I can tell all of you: this writes itself. Besides knowing Skip is such a little fighter and that the staff at BCR and their circle of Vets are doing a yeoman’s job to save him – all you folks who give support, positive energy…, prayers and love for this little bobcat just amaze me. A random collection of decent, good, caring Americans? In this time of self-indulgence? Who woulda thunk it …
I’m really looking forward to writing about Skip’s sojourn to share with my local readership next issue!!! :)See More

I have a question for the staff: This is a fabulous rescue story, but why didn’t the people who first found him call the DNR? I do NOT live in FL & yes, do understand that there is a real likelihood that they would have felt that putting h…im down might be best. However, I do know of many times (in my state) they have helped with securing & even transporting injured animals (especially when a medical plan is in place). Very happy this worked out so well but have wondered if they could have helped expedite the first part.See More

As I posted on other updates about Skip, my dog just went through this same thing, infact his x-ray was nearly identical! We also had a plate & screws inserted to repair the damage done. It’s week 5 and my dog is playing with his kitty play…mates and uses his leg now and acts totally normal. He only picks it up when he runs away from me to play, which he is quickly told to calm down so he doesn’t over-do it. So, if Skips internal organs are not too badly traumatized I have high hopes for his recovery! Thanks again to BCR, the rescuers & the vet & staff for the love & care Skip is receiving now! ? ? ? Words can’t describe how much this warms my heart!See More

I don’t think I’d be moving my back end much either after having it crushed, and suffering internal bleeding!!! The day after a bad tangle is always miserable. There’s still so much swelling going on and raw tissue damage- hopefully nothing… truly neurologic. Besides, he hasn’t had his surgery yet, it’s a long road. Yall know that! But I’ve seen miracles. Animals battling through things where I was like “no way”, and they made astounding recoveries :). Skip’s already proven to be a toughie. Keep up the great work, guys!!! ?See More

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
Dr Wynn spoke w/ Dr Blair who doesn’t think Skip’s shattered pelvis can be fixed surgically. We are consulting other bone specialists before we give up. He got fluids and is eating well but not urinating or defecating so we are worried that he can’t; which means even cage rest can’t help. Your love and healing thoughts may be his only chance. Not giving up yet.

It would be worth emailing or faxing him the xrays and results…I would be happy to assist in any way i could help from here in Charleston.

The pain/swelling can cause them not to want to do either. I pray this is the same for Skip. Any possibility of placing a urinary catheter for the time being to help relieve this poor guy?

She Szimanski
I hold anyone who tries to help the wild felines of this world in high regard, and am thankful for anyone who is able to make these efforts. However I am still mindful of the fact that a wild cat after being so wounded whether the pain is m…asked or not is probably far from comfortable, think of the fear and terror you would experience being poked and prodded by giant naked apes who can’y speak your language. My grandest hope for Skip is that he will have peace in some form or another, because I am quite sure he does not know anything of love in his current condition. Bravo for BCR doing their best and fighting for the little guy’s life, but it is silly to try and tell ourselves that he knows they are there to help.See More

Andrea Tomich Ohnstad It’s possible you’re right, She. I’m sure Skip is terrified. Either way, I hope for peace for him. If it’s in the form of being healed and becoming a rescue at BCR, that’s great. And if he does pass, at least he won’t have died on a cold asphalt road. THANK YOU to BCR for coming to this cat’s aid!
Wednesday at 9:02pm

Arlene Hoffer Oh dear. I do hope the very best for Skip….but if he can’t live a decent life, that is, if he can’t walk or even walk properly, please….I beg of you….don’t do some barbaric “miraculous” surgery on him and then make him submit his remaining life to some prosthetic “get up”.

Sheryl Braswell Our Maine coon cat was hit by an suv 15 years ago. He had basicly the same sort of break. He couldn’t urinate or deficate. Vet refused to operate. We brought him home to tell him goodbye. Well, he started getting better. Was able to use the bathroom within a week. Was walking within a month. Was blind in one eye. Lived another 10 years. It just took time for him to heal himself.

Never give up! Several members of my family have been given a ZERO to 2% chance of recovery or coming out of a coma state and guess what? Both my Father and Aunt did the “impossible” claimed by doctors. This has really touched my heart……I LOVE all cats, big and small. It’s so sad to see that people are such careless drivers. I see house pets like this all the time, even on my 20 mph street. Breaks my heart :( I really hope he comes around and that they can make the repairs needed. I will be keeping Skip in my thoughts and prayers and spreading the word as well!See More

Paula Cat ? Sending Lots of Love & Healing Vibes ? Years ago a feral cat in our neighborhood who visited occasionally for food showed up on my doorstep with a fractured pelvis. While his injury wasn’t as bad as Skip’s, I couldn’t afford surgery and pins. The vet suggested I keep him caged for 2 months and let it heal itself. It worked and within a few months he jumped and ran like he never had an injury and did so for over a decade. I will pray for Skip. ?

Colleen Tracey
Dr Wynn spoke w/ Dr Blair who doesn’t think Skip’s shattered pelvis can be fixed surgically. We are consulting other bone specialists before we give up. He got fluids and is eating well but not urinating or defecating so we are worried that… he can’t; which means even cage rest can’t help. Your love and healing thoug…hts may be his only chance. Not giving up yet.
Lets hope that Skip will prove them wrong!!!!!!!!!! Keep on Pooping and Peeing!See More

Justin Buzzini as i said, TLC, and a little time. many wild animals can take care of themselves. wolves can heal wounds, tigers could easily blend well with their surroundings, and cougars always get their prey (no, not those cougars). but i believe the phrase “Skip Pooped” is the ultimate definition on the year 2010. yay :P.

John Palmer Never underestimate the power of nature or prayer. Yet, I’ve saved injured house cats, spent thousands, only for them to be miserable. It is so hard to know what the right thing is in these situations. But I absolutely support this organization. We also need to put our money into protecting the habitat of the Earth’s dwindling wild animal populations. It is their future and ours too.

There is an incredible orthopedic surgeon in London who may be able to advise. He has cats walking that most other vets would have given up on. His name is David Kydd and his website is

All the local vets send him their most difficult cases, I know its far away but I am sure he could advise over the internetSee More

Amy Milligan Thanks to everyone that ‘liked’ my St. Francis of Assisi comment! I am a severely LAPSED Catholic so if any of you are ‘good’ Catholics you probably have a little more ‘clout’ with the appropriate powers that be! Please get to bothering St. Francis so he sends his healing powers to Skip and everyone caring for him! THANKS!!!

Great news! Skip peed and is going in tomorrow morning for surgery. Dr. Wynn found a bone specialist who says he thinks he can get Skip back on his feet, he just isn’t sure he will ever run. It’s a first step & worth a try. You can watch Skip at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bigcathospital

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
I set up the transport cage next to Skip’s cage tonight so he can move off the wet blanket and be ready for his ride to the vet tomorrow. If you don’t see him on UStream, he’s probably in the other side. Lungs starting to congest from impact so surgery will be touch and go. Send the loving thoughts!

John Palmer
I have a crushed right elbow. It has 22 screws and 4 plates but it works about half way. I also have 3 crushed fused vertabrae. The pain never goes away without narcotics. If Little Skip makes it he has a hard life in front of him. At least… he will be able to do it at BCR where he will be cared for really well. But a cat is not a human. It remains to be seen if he will have the quality of life a wild cat should have. There are so many unknown factors. It is so difficult to know what is best. But still I salute you BCR and I will support you with money as best as I can. You are wonderful.See More

Noreen Raudabaugh It’s so wonderful to see y’all doing all you can to help Skip. It really does warm the heart, and is exactly what we all need more of in the coming new year… more compassion and kindness. ‘Cause they can’t say it themselves, I feel it necessary to say it for them: “You guys are amazing! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” Wishing all of you and Skip a fabulous new year.

I was right in the middle of sending an email to LaWanna about some promotions she was dreaming up for the ChatBigCats.com site when Honey Wayton, our gift shop manager called and relayed an urgent message.

A woman had called to say they had found a bobcat alongside the highway and had it loose in their SUV and wanted to know what to do next because it was getting pretty mad.

Obviously this was their first bobcat rescue, because no one makes that mistake twice.  I called the woman who said her name was Nici and she said that the bobcat laying alongside the road had caught her eye.  Her husband, Skip had chased him down with a blanket, scooped him up and put him in the back of the car.  He was dragging his back end, so the chase wasn’t much of a challenge, but picking up a VERY mad bobcat made him a fury of claws and teeth.

Nici said they were two blocks from their home and that they could just leave him in the car for us to deal with, if we wanted.  As I frantically brought up a map to see that she was 2 and a half hours away, I didn’t think that was a great idea.  I asked if she had a pet carrier that they could just plop the blanketed cat into before he fully regained his senses.

She didn’t but her friend Lorie did.  Turns out that all three of them had visited Big Cat Rescue in the past and were eager to do anything they could to help save this skinny, crushed little bobcat.  My instructions had been to completely envelope the cat in thick blanketing and take the top off the carrier, if necessary, to accommodate the entire bundle, and then bolt the top back on.  I don’t know why that didn’t work for them, but I called Nici back a few minutes later, after starting Jamie on her way to Mt. Plymouth, and Nici said, “I hope you guys will name this bobcat Skip, after my husband because he is so brave!”

bobcats are sweet...when they are asleepSlashing teeth and claws be danged, Skip had managed to get a grip on the bobcat’s scruff and lifted him into the carrier.  Even though Lorie had brought over a German Shepherd sized crate the bobcat managed to go spread eagle over the entire door making it a real effort to push him into the pile of blankets in the carrier.  Kind of like baptizing a cat in a cereal bowl.

They covered him up and waited with him while I called every vet I could find between there and Tampa.  My concern was that the cat would go into shock before we could get him to a vet here, so I just needed someone to do a preliminary check and stabilize him.  By the time I had called a dozen vets and a couple of rehabbers two hours had passed and Jamie was nearly there.

Our old van is a 1998 and has seen better days.  It was shuddering so badly that Jamie Veronica had taken it into a station to check the tires but they were OK and the shudder happened even when sitting still.  I’m no mechanic, but sounded like a rod knocking to me and I was sweating whether or not the van would even make it to the Mt. Dora area, NW of Orlando.

Once I gave up on finding a vet near the bobcat, or even on the way home, who would give him the courtesy of even the most basic care, which I assured them I would pay in advance if necessary, I began to try and sort out what to do when he arrived in Tampa.

If Jamie didn’t break down, she and the bobcat should be back in town around 6 pm.  Our primary vet, Dr. Wynn had a previous engagement hosting a dozen people at 6pm.  I asked if I should contact Florida Veterinary Specialist or our secondary vet, Dr. Dave Murphy.  Dr. Wynn said she would call her clinic and see if Dr. Dave Danielson might be willing to look at the bobcat.  He had worked with native bobcats before that we brought in, and was willing to help.

bobcat on heating padAnother frantic call from Honey and Howard and I were on our way to the sanctuary to give tours.  We have a Free Teachers promotion going on and instead of having 2 or 3 groups of twenty showing up at 3pm we had 9 such tour groups yesterday and it turns out 12 groups today including a wedding.  It was the biggest single day the sanctuary has ever had.  It was probably good timing because otherwise I might have made Jamie crazy by calling every five minutes and asking, “Where are you now?”

During one such call Jamie said she would need me to bring the squeeze cage to the vet’s office.  How we were going to get the bobcat out of the carrier and into the squeeze cage was yet to be determined, but getting it there was the first step.  As soon as my tour ended I trotted across the parking lot to the on site West – Boensch Cat Hospital.  I chatted with Jack, who was recovering in the hospital from a nasty accident he had with the front gate, while I loaded the squeeze cage into my truck.  Jack is doing fine and is living proof that cats do have nine lives.

I ordered pizzas for pick up because I knew Jamie hadn’t eaten since this morning and didn’t know if the vet and his staff would be skipping dinner to fit this bobcat, now named Skip, into their already hectic evening schedule.   Jamie already had Skip inside and he was well on his way to a long, deep sleep by the time I arrived.  She said they had tipped the crate up on end and hand injected him through the grated door.  Within only a couple of minutes he was sleeping…or so we thought.

bobcat shattered pelvisOn the x-ray table he began blinking and trying to sit up, so he got a little more ketamine and went back to sleep.  The first x-ray showed the crushed pelvis and Dr. Danielson asked if we wanted to go any further as this was going to be a lot of major surgery with limited hope of recovery.  I told him we had spent more than $7500 on the last bobcat who needed plates, so we were willing to spend the money as long as the cat didn’t have any cat-killer diseases that would make him unfit for release.  The blood tests were done and he had a clean bill of health so the only other obstacle, which was determined later during a sonogram was that he has internal bleeding and his spleen may be beyond recovery.  Only a couple days of quiet rest and careful observation will let us know if he is going to live long enough to have the work done.

The vet tech Heather pulled ticks off Skip while Jamie checked his ears for mites, his fur for fleas and Dr. Danielson powdered his raw, purple rump, bruised badly from the impact.  Judging by his pearly white fangs we guessed his age to be around two years old and while finely muscled, he only weighed a mere 17 lbs.

After consulting Dr. Wynn by phone, Dr. Danielson decided to take a lot more x-rays and did all of the other work, such as flea treatment and tests, so that in a couple of days, if the spleen is still operational, Skip could go to FVS for the precision plating and pinning necessary to give him full mobility.

We waited to make sure he would wake up OK from the anesthesia, which he did rather quickly, and then covered him up to rest quietly in the dark over night.  Being a wild cat, close proximity to humans is very agitating.  His whole life has been based upon the knowledge that man is to be avoided at all costs.

If Skip makes it through the night we may set up cameras to monitor him tomorrow so that he isn’t being exposed to constant stress.

Jamie Veronica and Skip the bobcatWe have been posting his progress at http://www.facebook.com/bigcatrescue along with photos and we will be posting video soon.

You can check on him there and post your wishes for a speedy recovery.

I am very thankful for all the love that has been focused his way and if love can mend a broken bobcat, then Skip will surely be ready to run free again soon.

Carole Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue

Skip’s Facebook Fans

Skip the Bobcat became a Facebook Phenomenon over the New Year’s Week of 2010-2011

You can join the conversation at http://www.facebook.com/bigcatrescue or watch Skip in the on site Cat Hospital at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bigcathospital

Big Cat Rescue’s posts are in bold, followed by Skip’s 193 pages of well wishes from his Facebook fans. His chat window on UStream was even more voluminous, but is deleted each time the system resets, so we were unable to capture it, but it was very much like the following.

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
Bobcat needs emergency vet! Hit by car in Mt. Plymouth at noon. Now in a carrier in a garage. Jamie is on her way from Tampa but is two hours away. I’ve called 10 local vets and no one will treat the cat for shock until we arrive. If you know a vet between Mt. Plymouth and Tampa please call them and ask if they will treat the cat until we get there.

o
Pattie Huggins Deitrick
I know it is a wild kitty, but this is what I found!! maybe it can help!!

Step 1: Examine the cat for shock; gently lift the upper lip so the gum is visible. Pale or white gums indicate the cat is almost certainly in shock and may have seri…ous internal injuries and/or bleeding. If the gums are pink the cat is probably not in shock.

Step 2: Place the cat on its side on a blanket, towel, or jacket with its head extended.

Step 3: Clear the cat’s airway.

Step 3a: Place one hand over the cat’s head so that your thumb and index finger fall just behind the long canines (fang teeth), the head resting against your palm.

Step 3b: Gently tilt the cat’s head back so its nose is pointing upward. Push your thumb toward your finger; the mouth will open.

Step 3c: Gently pull out the cat’s tongue to keep the airway open. If the cat resists your attempt to pull the tongue out, do not repeat Step 3.

Step 4: Elevate the cat’s hindquarters slightly by placing them on a pillow or folded towel.

Step 5: Stop the bleeding immediately.

Step 6: To conserve body heat, wrap the cat in a blanket or jacket.

Step 7: Transport the cat to the veterinarian immediately.See More

Here’s the thing- most likely the vets won’t treat the animal “until someone gets there” because they don’t want to be stuck with an abandoned bobcat or (even worse in their eyes) the bill if no one shows up or follows through. It’s total c…rap. They’re not afraid of the cat, theres ways of dealing with even the most fractious animals- and if its shocky enough to have been able to be crated, there is no issue!!! they’re afraid of losing $. I’ve been working in the veterinary business (and I totally mean it when I use that word “business”) for many years, and am getting out of it to do law enforcement (animal control) cuz I just can’t take the corruption and profiteering that goes on anymore. Some situations require special action. Regardless the outcome, you think it would be good PR for a vet to do this!!! Ugh, I get so disgusted talking about this. Best luck, kitty, and Godspeed.See More

Ted Heine It makes me so angry that “vets” are not bound by the same ethical and moral considerations as human doctors. They certainly charge enough, yet can pick and choose which suffering animals to help. That’s just disgusting, inhumane and EVIL!

o
Ted Heine PS…I realized this when my own cat had a traumatic injury which resulted in her losing a leg. The very well known veterinary school and hospital which shall remain nameless……but is in West Philadelphia….told me that they were under no obligation to treat her…and they left her linger in a cage with a shattered femur for two days until they were sure I could pay them.

Again- too ‘overloaded’ for an emergency?! I just… Have a real hard time getting right with this. Feline anatomy is feline anatomy. And it’s not like were talking about a full grown panther, here! It’s an injured, shocky bobcat. Ive dealt… with them before (previous animal control exp at calls before fish & game arrived & a drop @ the shelter), and in my experience, dealing with an unhappy adult Rottweiler is way worse, lol! It’s simply unethical. I’m saddened by it. Again, I’m wishing the best ?See More

I had an unpleasant experience with a vet once. I was trying to save two one week old kittens. They got to where they wouldn’t eat and were crying all the time. I called a local vet but they wouldn’t see the kittens because they were clos…ing early. I then called a vet 30 miles away and they told me to bring the kittens right in. One died before I got there but the vet did check out the other though didn’t give me much hope. The point is that this vet at least took the time to try to help. Needless to say, this is the vet I take all my animals to now even though it’s further for me to travel.See More

My sweet dog just had this very same thing happen about a month ago! He had internal bleeding which stopped & was reabsorbed by his body after 12 hours & we were fortunately able to afford the surgery to fix his pelvis with a plate & screws…. This is the 5th week since it’s happened & he’s made nearly a full recovery! Even uses his leg (left side pelvis was broke)
I HOPE & PRAY this Bobcat is as strong & healthy as my dog is and so helps his chances of recovery!!! See More

Eeeesssshhhh- I know you were saying earlier that you hoped it wasn’t a pelvic injury. That’s a real tough one, especially with a heavier boned, stocky, wild feline. Are they able to discern the source of the internal bleeding and correct i…t? I’m sure many decisions are being fraught over and weighed for and against relating to quality of life. I’m so glad it’s BCR making the decisions, as you guys know intimately the recovery and rehab of a wild cat better than anyone. I’m sure if quality can be acheived, you’ll be there every step of the way. We’re behind you no matter what you decide :) See More

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL Skip was hit by a car. If he heals OK he will be released back to the wild. The internal bleeding is probably just from the impact and may all reabsorb. His organs all look pretty good, except for the spleen. That’s the big worry right now. Lungs are clear. No head trauma. VERY bruised from waist to tail.

o
Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL The best thing we can do for him for the next couple of days is keep him quiet and on pain meds and if his spleen isn’t completely trashed we will attempt a plate in the pelvis. His legs look OK. It’s broken in a very bad spot though, so I don’t know if there is much the surgeons can do. We will give him every opportunity at a second chance at freedom. Bellona’s surgeries were more than 7500.00 but we will spend that to help him be free again, if we have to.

I used to see one that hung out in the field next to the old farmhouse where I lived. I tried talking to him at first, thinking he was a housecat from a distance. As I got closer I realized, Wait a minute, that’s an awful big – and very serious-looking – kitty! He just sat there in the field looking like he thought I was crazy for talking to him… I was probably disturbing his dinner.

Marie Hopkins We had a cat who was hit by a car with resulting multiple fractures of the pelvis.

As a writer, I can tell all of you: this writes itself. Besides knowing Skip is such a little fighter and that the staff at BCR and their circle of Vets are doing a yeoman’s job to save him – all you folks who give support, positive energy…, prayers and love for this little bobcat just amaze me. A random collection of decent, good, caring Americans? In this time of self-indulgence? Who woulda thunk it …
I’m really looking forward to writing about Skip’s sojourn to share with my local readership next issue!!! :)See More

I have a question for the staff: This is a fabulous rescue story, but why didn’t the people who first found him call the DNR? I do NOT live in FL & yes, do understand that there is a real likelihood that they would have felt that putting h…im down might be best. However, I do know of many times (in my state) they have helped with securing & even transporting injured animals (especially when a medical plan is in place). Very happy this worked out so well but have wondered if they could have helped expedite the first part.See More

As I posted on other updates about Skip, my dog just went through this same thing, infact his x-ray was nearly identical! We also had a plate & screws inserted to repair the damage done. It’s week 5 and my dog is playing with his kitty play…mates and uses his leg now and acts totally normal. He only picks it up when he runs away from me to play, which he is quickly told to calm down so he doesn’t over-do it. So, if Skips internal organs are not too badly traumatized I have high hopes for his recovery! Thanks again to BCR, the rescuers & the vet & staff for the love & care Skip is receiving now! ? ? ? Words can’t describe how much this warms my heart!See More

We had to feed him through a feeding tube for a while and he had a rough time for a few weeks, but now you would never know anything ever happened to him! He is now too fat and full of the dickens!! Runs all over the house, jumping up and over furniture! So am praying for the same for Skip!!!

I don’t think I’d be moving my back end much either after having it crushed, and suffering internal bleeding!!! The day after a bad tangle is always miserable. There’s still so much swelling going on and raw tissue damage- hopefully nothing… truly neurologic. Besides, he hasn’t had his surgery yet, it’s a long road. Yall know that! But I’ve seen miracles. Animals battling through things where I was like “no way”, and they made astounding recoveries :). Skip’s already proven to be a toughie. Keep up the great work, guys!!! ?See More

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
Dr Wynn spoke w/ Dr Blair who doesn’t think Skip’s shattered pelvis can be fixed surgically. We are consulting other bone specialists before we give up. He got fluids and is eating well but not urinating or defecating so we are worried that he can’t; which means even cage rest can’t help. Your love and healing thoughts may be his only chance. Not giving up yet.

The pain/swelling can cause them not to want to do either. I pray this is the same for Skip. Any possibility of placing a urinary catheter for the time being to help relieve this poor guy?

She Szimanski
I hold anyone who tries to help the wild felines of this world in high regard, and am thankful for anyone who is able to make these efforts. However I am still mindful of the fact that a wild cat after being so wounded whether the pain is m…asked or not is probably far from comfortable, think of the fear and terror you would experience being poked and prodded by giant naked apes who can’y speak your language. My grandest hope for Skip is that he will have peace in some form or another, because I am quite sure he does not know anything of love in his current condition. Bravo for BCR doing their best and fighting for the little guy’s life, but it is silly to try and tell ourselves that he knows they are there to help.See More

Andrea Tomich Ohnstad It’s possible you’re right, She. I’m sure Skip is terrified. Either way, I hope for peace for him. If it’s in the form of being healed and becoming a rescue at BCR, that’s great. And if he does pass, at least he won’t have died on a cold asphalt road. THANK YOU to BCR for coming to this cat’s aid!

Arlene Hoffer Oh dear. I do hope the very best for Skip….but if he can’t live a decent life, that is, if he can’t walk or even walk properly, please….I beg of you….don’t do some barbaric “miraculous” surgery on him and then make him submit his remaining life to some prosthetic “get up”.

Sheryl Braswell Our Maine coon cat was hit by an suv 15 years ago. He had basicly the same sort of break. He couldn’t urinate or deficate. Vet refused to operate. We brought him home to tell him goodbye. Well, he started getting better. Was able to use the bathroom within a week. Was walking within a month. Was blind in one eye. Lived another 10 years. It just took time for him to heal himself.

Never give up! Several members of my family have been given a ZERO to 2% chance of recovery or coming out of a coma state and guess what? Both my Father and Aunt did the “impossible” claimed by doctors. This has really touched my heart……I LOVE all cats, big and small. It’s so sad to see that people are such careless drivers. I see house pets like this all the time, even on my 20 mph street. Breaks my heart :( I really hope he comes around and that they can make the repairs needed. I will be keeping Skip in my thoughts and prayers and spreading the word as well!See More

Paula Cat ? Sending Lots of Love & Healing Vibes ? Years ago a feral cat in our neighborhood who visited occasionally for food showed up on my doorstep with a fractured pelvis. While his injury wasn’t as bad as Skip’s, I couldn’t afford surgery and pins. The vet suggested I keep him caged for 2 months and let it heal itself. It worked and within a few months he jumped and ran like he never had an injury and did so for over a decade. I will pray for Skip. ?

Colleen Tracey
Dr Wynn spoke w/ Dr Blair who doesn’t think Skip’s shattered pelvis can be fixed surgically. We are consulting other bone specialists before we give up. He got fluids and is eating well but not urinating or defecating so we are worried that… he can’t; which means even cage rest can’t help. Your love and healing thoug…hts may be his only chance. Not giving up yet.
Lets hope that Skip will prove them wrong!!!!!!!!!! Keep on Pooping and Peeing!See More

Justin Buzzini as i said, TLC, and a little time. many wild animals can take care of themselves. wolves can heal wounds, tigers could easily blend well with their surroundings, and cougars always get their prey (no, not those cougars). but i believe the phrase “Skip Pooped” is the ultimate definition on the year 2010. yay :P.

John Palmer Never underestimate the power of nature or prayer. Yet, I’ve saved injured house cats, spent thousands, only for them to be miserable. It is so hard to know what the right thing is in these situations. But I absolutely support this organization. We also need to put our money into protecting the habitat of the Earth’s dwindling wild animal populations. It is their future and ours too.

Amy Milligan Thanks to everyone that ‘liked’ my St. Francis of Assisi comment! I am a severely LAPSED Catholic so if any of you are ‘good’ Catholics you probably have a little more ‘clout’ with the appropriate powers that be!

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
I set up the transport cage next to Skip’s cage tonight so he can move off the wet blanket and be ready for his ride to the vet tomorrow. If you don’t see him on UStream, he’s probably in the other side. Lungs starting to congest from impact so surgery will be touch and go. Send the loving thoughts!

Jessy Carrington I hope he pulls through all this. His life has just begun. Skip is such a amazing cat and it would be a tragedy to all if we lost him. This little bobcats life has just started and he has so much more ahead of him. Thank you BCR for giving him the chance to live that life to the fullest. Thank you for caring, if only everyone was like the amazing people that are at BCR the world would be a better place for everyone and every living thing on this planet.

I have a crushed right elbow. It has 22 screws and 4 plates but it works about half way. I also have 3 crushed fused vertabrae. The pain never goes away without narcotics. If Little Skip makes it he has a hard life in front of him. At least… he will be able to do it at BCR where he will be cared for really well. But a cat is not a human. It remains to be seen if he will have the quality of life a wild cat should have. There are so many unknown factors. It is so difficult to know what is best. But still I salute you BCR and I will support you with money as best as I can. You are wonderful.See More

Tina Reed I apologize if this question has been asked before. Will Skip stay at BCR now, or are you hoping to release him back into the wild? If he will be released, will you place a tracking device on him so that you can monitor him? I worry about a wild animal with implants. You never now what can happen with implants. I have seen animals who have had implants for years suddenly have problems.

I was right in the middle of sending an email to LaWanna about some promotions she was dreaming up for the ChatBigCats.com site when Honey Wayton, our gift shop manager called and relayed an urgent message.

A woman had called to say they had found a bobcat alongside the highway and had it loose in their SUV and wanted to know what to do next because it was getting pretty mad.

Obviously this was their first bobcat rescue, because no one makes that mistake twice.  I called the woman who said her name was Nici and she said that the bobcat laying alongside the road had caught her eye.  Her husband, Skip had chased him down with a blanket, scooped him up and put him in the back of the car.  He was dragging his back end, so the chase wasn’t much of a challenge, but picking up a VERY mad bobcat made him a fury of claws and teeth.

Nici said they were two blocks from their home and that they could just leave him in the car for us to deal with, if we wanted.  As I frantically brought up a map to see that she was 2 and a half hours away, I didn’t think that was a great idea.  I asked if she had a pet carrier that they could just plop the blanketed cat into before he fully regained his senses.

She didn’t but her friend Lorie did.  Turns out that all three of them had visited Big Cat Rescue in the past and were eager to do anything they could to help save this skinny, crushed little bobcat.  My instructions had been to completely envelope the cat in thick blanketing and take the top off the carrier, if necessary, to accommodate the entire bundle, and then bolt the top back on.  I don’t know why that didn’t work for them, but I called Nici back a few minutes later, after starting Jamie on her way to Mt. Plymouth, and Nici said, “I hope you guys will name this bobcat Skip, after my husband because he is so brave!”

bobcats are sweet...when they are asleepSlashing teeth and claws be danged, Skip had managed to get a grip on the bobcat’s scruff and lifted him into the carrier.  Even though Lorie had brought over a German Shepherd sized crate the bobcat managed to go spread eagle over the entire door making it a real effort to push him into the pile of blankets in the carrier.  Kind of like baptizing a cat in a cereal bowl.

They covered him up and waited with him while I called every vet I could find between there and Tampa.  My concern was that the cat would go into shock before we could get him to a vet here, so I just needed someone to do a preliminary check and stabilize him.  By the time I had called a dozen vets and a couple of rehabbers two hours had passed and Jamie was nearly there.

Our old van is a 1998 and has seen better days.  It was shuddering so badly that Jamie Veronica had taken it into a station to check the tires but they were OK and the shudder happened even when sitting still.  I’m no mechanic, but sounded like a rod knocking to me and I was sweating whether or not the van would even make it to the Mt. Dora area, NW of Orlando.

Once I gave up on finding a vet near the bobcat, or even on the way home, who would give him the courtesy of even the most basic care, which I assured them I would pay in advance if necessary, I began to try and sort out what to do when he arrived in Tampa.

If Jamie didn’t break down, she and the bobcat should be back in town around 6 pm.  Our primary vet, Dr. Wynn had a previous engagement hosting a dozen people at 6pm.  I asked if I should contact Florida Veterinary Specialist or our secondary vet, Dr. Dave Murphy.  Dr. Wynn said she would call her clinic and see if Dr. Dave Danielson might be willing to look at the bobcat.  He had worked with native bobcats before that we brought in, and was willing to help.

bobcat on heating padAnother frantic call from Honey and Howard and I were on our way to the sanctuary to give tours.  We have a Free Teachers promotion going on and instead of having 2 or 3 groups of twenty showing up at 3pm we had 9 such tour groups yesterday and it turns out 12 groups today including a wedding.  It was the biggest single day the sanctuary has ever had.  It was probably good timing because otherwise I might have made Jamie crazy by calling every five minutes and asking, “Where are you now?”

During one such call Jamie said she would need me to bring the squeeze cage to the vet’s office.  How we were going to get the bobcat out of the carrier and into the squeeze cage was yet to be determined, but getting it there was the first step.  As soon as my tour ended I trotted across the parking lot to the on site West – Boensch Cat Hospital.  I chatted with Jack, who was recovering in the hospital from a nasty accident he had with the front gate, while I loaded the squeeze cage into my truck.  Jack is doing fine and is living proof that cats do have nine lives.

I ordered pizzas for pick up because I knew Jamie hadn’t eaten since this morning and didn’t know if the vet and his staff would be skipping dinner to fit this bobcat, now named Skip, into their already hectic evening schedule.   Jamie already had Skip inside and he was well on his way to a long, deep sleep by the time I arrived.  She said they had tipped the crate up on end and hand injected him through the grated door.  Within only a couple of minutes he was sleeping…or so we thought.

bobcat shattered pelvisOn the x-ray table he began blinking and trying to sit up, so he got a little more ketamine and went back to sleep.  The first x-ray showed the crushed pelvis and Dr. Danielson asked if we wanted to go any further as this was going to be a lot of major surgery with limited hope of recovery.  I told him we had spent more than $7500 on the last bobcat who needed plates, so we were willing to spend the money as long as the cat didn’t have any cat-killer diseases that would make him unfit for release.  The blood tests were done and he had a clean bill of health so the only other obstacle, which was determined later during a sonogram was that he has internal bleeding and his spleen may be beyond recovery.  Only a couple days of quiet rest and careful observation will let us know if he is going to live long enough to have the work done.

The vet tech Heather pulled ticks off Skip while Jamie checked his ears for mites, his fur for fleas and Dr. Danielson powdered his raw, purple rump, bruised badly from the impact.  Judging by his pearly white fangs we guessed his age to be around two years old and while finely muscled, he only weighed a mere 17 lbs.

After consulting Dr. Wynn by phone, Dr. Danielson decided to take a lot more x-rays and did all of the other work, such as flea treatment and tests, so that in a couple of days, if the spleen is still operational, Skip could go to FVS for the precision plating and pinning necessary to give him full mobility.

We waited to make sure he would wake up OK from the anesthesia, which he did rather quickly, and then covered him up to rest quietly in the dark over night.  Being a wild cat, close proximity to humans is very agitating.  His whole life has been based upon the knowledge that man is to be avoided at all costs.

If Skip makes it through the night we may set up cameras to monitor him tomorrow so that he isn’t being exposed to constant stress.

Jamie Veronica and Skip the bobcatWe have been posting his progress at http://www.facebook.com/bigcatrescue along with photos and we will be posting video soon.

You can check on him there and post your wishes for a speedy recovery.

I am very thankful for all the love that has been focused his way and if love can mend a broken bobcat, then Skip will surely be ready to run free again soon.

Skip the Bobcat became a Facebook Phenomenon over the New Year’s Week of 2010-2011

You can join the conversation at http://www.facebook.com/bigcatrescue or watch Skip in the on site Cat Hospital at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bigcathospital

Big Cat Rescue’s posts are in bold, followed by Skip’s 193 pages of well wishes from his Facebook fans. His chat window on UStream was even more voluminous, but is deleted each time the system resets, so we were unable to capture it, but it was very much like the following.

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
Bobcat needs emergency vet! Hit by car in Mt. Plymouth at noon. Now in a carrier in a garage. Jamie is on her way from Tampa but is two hours away. I’ve called 10 local vets and no one will treat the cat for shock until we arrive. If you know a vet between Mt. Plymouth and Tampa please call them and ask if they will treat the cat until we get there.

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL I called E.Lk first and they were helpful but their vet is there alone and in surgery all day. We have Ehrlich Rd Animal Hospital and FVS here in Tampa who will see him, but I was trying to find help closer to where he is so that he doesn’t die from shock.

I know it is a wild kitty, but this is what I found!! maybe it can help!!

Step 1: Examine the cat for shock; gently lift the upper lip so the gum is visible. Pale or white gums indicate the cat is almost certainly in shock and may have seri…ous internal injuries and/or bleeding. If the gums are pink the cat is probably not in shock.

Step 2: Place the cat on its side on a blanket, towel, or jacket with its head extended.

Step 3: Clear the cat’s airway.

Step 3a: Place one hand over the cat’s head so that your thumb and index finger fall just behind the long canines (fang teeth), the head resting against your palm.

Step 3b: Gently tilt the cat’s head back so its nose is pointing upward. Push your thumb toward your finger; the mouth will open.

Step 3c: Gently pull out the cat’s tongue to keep the airway open. If the cat resists your attempt to pull the tongue out, do not repeat Step 3.

Step 4: Elevate the cat’s hindquarters slightly by placing them on a pillow or folded towel.

Step 5: Stop the bleeding immediately.

Step 6: To conserve body heat, wrap the cat in a blanket or jacket.

Step 7: Transport the cat to the veterinarian immediately.See More

Here’s the thing- most likely the vets won’t treat the animal “until someone gets there” because they don’t want to be stuck with an abandoned bobcat or (even worse in their eyes) the bill if no one shows up or follows through. It’s total c…rap. They’re not afraid of the cat, theres ways of dealing with even the most fractious animals- and if its shocky enough to have been able to be crated, there is no issue!!! they’re afraid of losing $. I’ve been working in the veterinary business (and I totally mean it when I use that word “business”) for many years, and am getting out of it to do law enforcement (animal control) cuz I just can’t take the corruption and profiteering that goes on anymore. Some situations require special action. Regardless the outcome, you think it would be good PR for a vet to do this!!! Ugh, I get so disgusted talking about this. Best luck, kitty, and Godspeed.See More

Ted Heine It makes me so angry that “vets” are not bound by the same ethical and moral considerations as human doctors. They certainly charge enough, yet can pick and choose which suffering animals to help. That’s just disgusting, inhumane and EVIL!

Some gave no reason other than to say they “don’t do wildlife.”

o
Ted Heine PS…I realized this when my own cat had a traumatic injury which resulted in her losing a leg. The very well known veterinary school and hospital which shall remain nameless……but is in West Philadelphia….told me that they were under no obligation to treat her…and they left her linger in a cage with a shattered femur for two days until they were sure I could pay them.

Again- too ‘overloaded’ for an emergency?! I just… Have a real hard time getting right with this. Feline anatomy is feline anatomy. And it’s not like were talking about a full grown panther, here! It’s an injured, shocky bobcat. Ive dealt… with them before (previous animal control exp at calls before fish & game arrived & a drop @ the shelter), and in my experience, dealing with an unhappy adult Rottweiler is way worse, lol! It’s simply unethical. I’m saddened by it. Again, I’m wishing the best ?See More

I had an unpleasant experience with a vet once. I was trying to save two one week old kittens. They got to where they wouldn’t eat and were crying all the time. I called a local vet but they wouldn’t see the kittens because they were clos…ing early. I then called a vet 30 miles away and they told me to bring the kittens right in. One died before I got there but the vet did check out the other though didn’t give me much hope. The point is that this vet at least took the time to try to help. Needless to say, this is the vet I take all my animals to now even though it’s further for me to travel.See More

My sweet dog just had this very same thing happen about a month ago! He had internal bleeding which stopped & was reabsorbed by his body after 12 hours & we were fortunately able to afford the surgery to fix his pelvis with a plate & screws…. This is the 5th week since it’s happened & he’s made nearly a full recovery! Even uses his leg (left side pelvis was broke)
I HOPE & PRAY this Bobcat is as strong & healthy as my dog is and so helps his chances of recovery!!! See More

Eeeesssshhhh- I know you were saying earlier that you hoped it wasn’t a pelvic injury. That’s a real tough one, especially with a heavier boned, stocky, wild feline. Are they able to discern the source of the internal bleeding and correct i…t? I’m sure many decisions are being fraught over and weighed for and against relating to quality of life. I’m so glad it’s BCR making the decisions, as you guys know intimately the recovery and rehab of a wild cat better than anyone. I’m sure if quality can be acheived, you’ll be there every step of the way. We’re behind you no matter what you decide :) See More

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL Skip was hit by a car. If he heals OK he will be released back to the wild. The internal bleeding is probably just from the impact and may all reabsorb. His organs all look pretty good, except for the spleen. That’s the big worry right now. Lungs are clear. No head trauma. VERY bruised from waist to tail.

December 28, 2010 at 8:36pm
o
Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL The best thing we can do for him for the next couple of days is keep him quiet and on pain meds and if his spleen isn’t completely trashed we will attempt a plate in the pelvis. His legs look OK. It’s broken in a very bad spot though, so I don’t know if there is much the surgeons can do. We will give him every opportunity at a second chance at freedom. Bellona’s surgeries were more than 7500.00 but we will spend that to help him be free again, if we have to.

Rebecca Vernon Oh…our boy Skippy is just a little guy. Poor little flat kitty. I hope he feels better soon, and his spleen is okay. I used to see one that hung out in the field next to the old farmhouse where I lived. I tried talking to him at first, thinking he was a housecat from a distance. As I got closer I realized, Wait a minute, that’s an awful big – and very serious-looking – kitty! He just sat there in the field looking like he thought I was crazy for talking to him… I was probably disturbing his dinner.

Marie Hopkins We had a cat who was hit by a car with resulting multiple fractures of the pelvis. I couldn’t afford the expensive surgery so the vet advised to keep him confined and quiet and said he might recover but would have a limp. He made a full recovery and no limp. Hoping Skip will do as well!

As a writer, I can tell all of you: this writes itself. Besides knowing Skip is such a little fighter and that the staff at BCR and their circle of Vets are doing a yeoman’s job to save him – all you folks who give support, positive energy…, prayers and love for this little bobcat just amaze me. A random collection of decent, good, caring Americans? In this time of self-indulgence? Who woulda thunk it …
I’m really looking forward to writing about Skip’s sojourn to share with my local readership next issue!!! :)See More

I have a question for the staff: This is a fabulous rescue story, but why didn’t the people who first found him call the DNR? I do NOT live in FL & yes, do understand that there is a real likelihood that they would have felt that putting h…im down might be best. However, I do know of many times (in my state) they have helped with securing & even transporting injured animals (especially when a medical plan is in place). Very happy this worked out so well but have wondered if they could have helped expedite the first part.See More

As I posted on other updates about Skip, my dog just went through this same thing, infact his x-ray was nearly identical! We also had a plate & screws inserted to repair the damage done. It’s week 5 and my dog is playing with his kitty play…mates and uses his leg now and acts totally normal. He only picks it up when he runs away from me to play, which he is quickly told to calm down so he doesn’t over-do it. So, if Skips internal organs are not too badly traumatized I have high hopes for his recovery! Thanks again to BCR, the rescuers & the vet & staff for the love & care Skip is receiving now! ? ? ? Words can’t describe how much this warms my heart!See More

Diane M. Duhaime After my cat got hit by a car, the vet didn’t think he would make it. His jaw was broken in 2 places, his nose and eye were all swollen up, he looked awful! We had to feed him through a feeding tube for a while and he had a rough time for a few weeks, but now you would never know anything ever happened to him! He is now too fat and full of the dickens!! Runs all over the house, jumping up and over furniture! So am praying for the same for Skip!!!

I don’t think I’d be moving my back end much either after having it crushed, and suffering internal bleeding!!! The day after a bad tangle is always miserable. There’s still so much swelling going on and raw tissue damage- hopefully nothing… truly neurologic. Besides, he hasn’t had his surgery yet, it’s a long road. Yall know that! But I’ve seen miracles. Animals battling through things where I was like “no way”, and they made astounding recoveries :). Skip’s already proven to be a toughie. Keep up the great work, guys!!! ?See More

Dr Wynn spoke w/ Dr Blair who doesn’t think Skip’s shattered pelvis can be fixed surgically. We are consulting other bone specialists before we give up. He got fluids and is eating well but not urinating or defecating so we are worried that he can’t; which means even cage rest can’t help. Your love and healing thoughts may be his only chance. Not giving up yet.

The pain/swelling can cause them not to want to do either. I pray this is the same for Skip. Any possibility of placing a urinary catheter for the time being to help relieve this poor guy?

She Szimanski
I hold anyone who tries to help the wild felines of this world in high regard, and am thankful for anyone who is able to make these efforts. However I am still mindful of the fact that a wild cat after being so wounded whether the pain is m…asked or not is probably far from comfortable, think of the fear and terror you would experience being poked and prodded by giant naked apes who can’y speak your language. My grandest hope for Skip is that he will have peace in some form or another, because I am quite sure he does not know anything of love in his current condition. Bravo for BCR doing their best and fighting for the little guy’s life, but it is silly to try and tell ourselves that he knows they are there to help.See More

Andrea Tomich Ohnstad It’s possible you’re right, She. I’m sure Skip is terrified. Either way, I hope for peace for him. If it’s in the form of being healed and becoming a rescue at BCR, that’s great. And if he does pass, at least he won’t have died on a cold asphalt road. THANK YOU to BCR for coming to this cat’s aid!

Arlene Hoffer Oh dear. I do hope the very best for Skip….but if he can’t live a decent life, that is, if he can’t walk or even walk properly, please….I beg of you….don’t do some barbaric “miraculous” surgery on him and then make him submit his remaining life to some prosthetic “get up”.

Sheryl Braswell Our Maine coon cat was hit by an suv 15 years ago. He had basicly the same sort of break. He couldn’t urinate or deficate. Vet refused to operate. We brought him home to tell him goodbye. Well, he started getting better. Was able to use the bathroom within a week. Was walking within a month. Was blind in one eye. Lived another 10 years. It just took time for him to heal himself.

Never give up! Several members of my family have been given a ZERO to 2% chance of recovery or coming out of a coma state and guess what? Both my Father and Aunt did the “impossible” claimed by doctors. This has really touched my heart……I LOVE all cats, big and small. It’s so sad to see that people are such careless drivers. I see house pets like this all the time, even on my 20 mph street. Breaks my heart :( I really hope he comes around and that they can make the repairs needed. I will be keeping Skip in my thoughts and prayers and spreading the word as well!See More

Paula Cat ? Sending Lots of Love & Healing Vibes ? Years ago a feral cat in our neighborhood who visited occasionally for food showed up on my doorstep with a fractured pelvis. While his injury wasn’t as bad as Skip’s, I couldn’t afford surgery and pins. The vet suggested I keep him caged for 2 months and let it heal itself. It worked and within a few months he jumped and ran like he never had an injury and did so for over a decade. I will pray for Skip. ?

Colleen Tracey
Dr Wynn spoke w/ Dr Blair who doesn’t think Skip’s shattered pelvis can be fixed surgically. We are consulting other bone specialists before we give up. He got fluids and is eating well but not urinating or defecating so we are worried that… he can’t; which means even cage rest can’t help. Your love and healing thoug…hts may be his only chance. Not giving up yet.
Lets hope that Skip will prove them wrong!!!!!!!!!! Keep on Pooping and Peeing!See More

Justin Buzzini as i said, TLC, and a little time. many wild animals can take care of themselves. wolves can heal wounds, tigers could easily blend well with their surroundings, and cougars always get their prey (no, not those cougars). but i believe the phrase “Skip Pooped” is the ultimate definition on the year 2010. yay :P.

John Palmer Never underestimate the power of nature or prayer. Yet, I’ve saved injured house cats, spent thousands, only for them to be miserable. It is so hard to know what the right thing is in these situations. But I absolutely support this organization. We also need to put our money into protecting the habitat of the Earth’s dwindling wild animal populations. It is their future and ours too.

Amy Milligan Thanks to everyone that ‘liked’ my St. Francis of Assisi comment!

Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL
I set up the transport cage next to Skip’s cage tonight so he can move off the wet blanket and be ready for his ride to the vet tomorrow. If you don’t see him on UStream, he’s probably in the other side. Lungs starting to congest from impact so surgery will be touch and go. Send the loving thoughts!

We all will be waiting for you to get back on that camera, so we can just sit on our computers and stare at ya’ ALL DAY!

Thanks for the update about the lung congestion, BCR. I realize it’s still touch & go, but I feel a little more hopeful than I did after first reading about the congestion. I watched him for so many hours today – I will be so brokenhearted …if he doesn’t pull through. *Sending positive vibes and love* Stay tough, Skip!
Excuse me while I go & give my kitties extra hugs now.See More

Nagy Alexandra I woke up an hour ago and the first thing I did was turning on my computer to check on Skip :) I’m praying for him, and sending all my happy thougths. Yesterday I sent my mom the link of the livestream. She called me an hour later: “He’s not moving… Tell me that he’s just sleeping, tell me immediately”. Of course XD So she’s rooting for Skip as well. Many loving thoughts from Hungary :)
