This is a plea for help
I'm currently at Biyadhoo & leave early Monday Morning. Yesterday I found a black & white Tom Cat, (he's the only black & white cat on the island I've seen) and he has serious injuries to his front legs. Looks like possible old bite wounds that have since become infected. He's in pain, struggling to walk & you can literally smell the infection on him.
I spoke to Reception staff about him to see if I could arrange vet treatment but I've been told there are no vets to care for him, apparently he's been given a few "tablets" but this obviously isn't helping him. He's been deteriorating from this for at lest 5 months now.
I think he needs surgery to be honest to clean & stitch up his wounds, failing that a strong shot of antibiotics.
If he gets neither he's going to have a slow & painful time of it until the infection takes over & his body gives up on him.
If there are any vets visiting the island soon please can you try & bring something to help him?
I know this is a long shot but I had to try something to get him some help
I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to see the replies to this thread until I'm home but if anyone wants to contact me direct to give advice on how to help I'm in room 50 & reception will get a message to me if you email them.
Thanks for reading this & I hope so much someone can help him, poor boy.
