Good day, today. Had a lot of help!! Most of the day centered around bringing Reise up front to the hospital cage and treating the cut on her side. Volunteers and interns worked on the tour path through Servals. Getting everything cleaned up. It looks fabulous. That's it for me today!!
Videos of the Day
Reise Cougar had a scratch stitched up by Dr. Justin today. We had some Internet issues trying to bring it to you LIVE, but here is Dr. Justin Boorstein’s summary. Reise Cougar is over 23 which is like you being over 130. She can’t groom herself, so we had to shave her. Because she’s so old, she’s on pain meds. She probably stumbled, going through a cage door, and cut herself, even though several cats have lived there and no one has ever cut themselves. (We filed down the door edges afterward, to be sure, but the sharpness wasn’t even visible to the eye; that’s how small it was) In falling and scraping at the same time, even though the initial cut was very small and superficial, the bruising probably kept it from healing, so today he cut away the dead skin to stitch up living tissue for a better bond. There was no infection because she was already on antibiotics. She will be kept off the dirt for 10 days to let it heal. Find out more at BigCatRescue.org/Reise
