Update on the sick ones

Photo: Stitches

Orange Boy had a relapse, sneezing and running nose, but now finally seems to get better. He is playing…running and catching paper balls. I noticed that he is now able to stand up on his hind legs to catch the ball in the air..almost back to full strength.

Mirko is also sneezing less but still has the eye discharge,one eye is only half open and quite red. I clean his eyes with saline and apply eye drops twice a day.Both of them are still confined to my room.

Stitches has fully recovered from flu but there is still no improvement in his skin condition. He has the run of the balcony while Silver and Sophia are kept in cages to prevent close contact with Stitches.

Still can’t release Sophia…it’s been raining the whole day. If only we could build a shelter for her in those bushes…

Silver was contemplating jumping on the chair, but then wisely changed her mind. I guess she knows that her hind legs are still not strong enough. She can walk and even jump down from the chair but not strong enough to stand up on her hind legs. Will probably have to keep her in for several weeks until she regains her strength and is able to run from danger…unless she gets adopted first.

  1. Stitches’ face does look awful in the photo. Could it be malignant?

  2. Let’s hope not..there is actually no swelling, the line is just the scar where his wound was stitched. Seems to me that he is getting better with all the black stuff coming off showing the pink skin.

  3. Photo can be misleading. The black stuff is the dead or necrotic tissue and the pink stuff is the granulation tissue. Be very gentle with cleaning the pink tissue and use only water. Too vigorous cleaning can retard healing. Have a look at some hospital’s pharmacy to see if you can buy some paste to promote healing.
