Update on Flint, the new Rehab Bobcat Kitten

Flint was seen by Dr. Justin Boorstein for diagnostics.  He ate and drank well overnight, last night.  His SNAP test was negative for any cat diseases.  His X-rays showed no broken bones.  His physical exam showed no punctures or cuts.  We were concerned that there might be bleeding in the lungs, as he sounded raspy, but under anesthesia, with a stethoscope, the lungs sound clear, so it could be damage to his vocal cords or throat.

Because he’s only 3 pounds, 12 ounces, and has tiny little bones we sent out the X-rays to Oncura Partners for a second opinion.  We could see there was a bit of a mess around his lungs and heart, but couldn’t tell if it was congenital or caused by the trauma.  Oncura Partners had the same reaction.  They said it could have been a pre-existing condition (which might have caused him to be slower in getting away from the dogs than his family) or it could be due to the trauma.

It’s hard to believe this could have been a congenital issue because Flint is in very good body condition for a wild bobcat kitten.  We don’t think he would have thrived if he had these serious conditions before being caught by hunting dogs.  All we can do now is keep Flint on pain meds, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, and a good diet while keeping him quiet and safe.  Cats have an amazing ability to heal themselves, so keep sending good vibes his way and hopefully, he will be joining Cinder and Ash soon outside in rehab.
