Ouch! Lightfoot arrived with wounds all over his neck and ears. But this bright, delightful cat is already healing up with a little help from Guardian Angels.
Lightfoot was found as a stray in Philadelphia. The group that found him just couldn’t leave him out there with all of those open wounds. But healing them up was tougher than you might think. Despite treatment, the wounds wouldn't go away.
So he came to Best Friends for special care.
Here, the vet team could imagine a lot of different possibilities for Lightfoot’s mysterious wounds. He might be doing it to himself. He might have a skin condition. Parasites are always possible. Or it could even be a simple allergy.
There was no doubt that antibiotics were needed right away, because the wounds were a bit infected. But the next challenge will be to find out what is causing them in the first place. And he’s in just the right place to find that out.
So let the diagnosing (and the healing) begin!
Guardian Angels, please welcome this charming cat who only wants to get comfortable so that he can find a home.
