Winner was a slightly scraggly, long-haired neighborhood cat who hung around my house and several others’ where food was available. One day I was bringing a foster kitten back from the vet and there he was. All but his face was soaked in some sort of oil. His coat looked like some kind of spiky punk rocker kitty. I did not take time to get a photo, I just took the kitten in the house and then got Winner into the carrier before he wandered off.
I took him to the vet hospital, where he was bathed and checked over. He had cuts or bites in several places and damage to one ear and the eye on that side of his face. I took him and his meds home and tried to care for his injuries, especially around his ear but they needed care more than I could do alone. Cindy of Fat Kitty City was kind enough to take him on. She managed to clean out his ear and their vet saw that the ear drum was also damaged. The Fat Kitty City team (Cindy, Ed, Vet, and Volunteers) spent hours, over many days treating all the damage.
I was not able to find out exactly what had happened to cause all of this. By the time he was well he had gained weight and grown such a beautiful coat he looked like a different cat. Just a really sweet guy!
