Some weeks ago, we were directed to an abusive situation where a kitten was being beaten by children. We asked the parents if they owned the kitten, and they simply said they didn't want the kitten, didn't know where he came from and did not have money to feed him. When we reached the undernourished kitten, we noticed that some glue-like substance appeared to have been smeared on his back by a large paintbrush and had hardened, causing the kitten's skin to break and crack and bleed. We rushed him to the vet where he was treated with antibiotics and a dip shampoo, which removed only part of the hardened substance. During the next two weeks, we gave him antibiotics and carefully began pulling the hard substance from his fur. He did not object and allowed us to continue the procedure over a week, although it must have been painful.
Despite his horrific experiences, "Cairo" remained loveable and in good humor. He always greeted us with a "screech" when we came in his room and began purring immediately. He loved to get on our laps, and jump on our shoulders. And he loved to give severe "head bumps". A most wonderful kitten.
Now he has found a loving home and is bringing joy to his human companion.
