KIBBEN – Rescued With an Abscessed Wound

7/23/21 – Warning Graphic Photo – On Tuesday, July 20, Hailie sent an e mail advising that on the previous Friday morning, right before she started a new job, a big, friendly, long haired black (ear tipped) ‘feral’ went up to Hailie and she saw a very, very large open wound on his neck. It looked like it was a puncture/bite that turned into an abscess which ruptured. We were able to make arrangements for Kibben to be seen yesterday, but poor Hailie was having problems trapping him. Fortunately, we have a ‘master trapper’ in our Village and she contacted Hailie and gave some advice. And, thankfully, during the early morning hours, Kibben was successfully trapped and thankfully, the veterinary hospital was able to take Kibben in this morning. It turns out that Kibben is a very sweet cat who didn’t even need to be put under to be snap tested or have his wounds (neck and ear) cleaned and treated. The doctor felt it best to not close the wound. Unfortunately, he did test positive for FIV, but as we’ve said before, this is not a death knell. Kibben was given antibiotics and pain medication. The doctor said it would take about 2-3 weeks for the wound to heal. Hailie would love to find a furever home for him and if anyone could help out by taking him in, she would very much appreciate it. At this time, Hailie is caring for her mom while working a part-time job. If anyone is interested in giving this handsome boy a home, please contact Hailie at: –
