This is Joaquin. He is a FIV+ cat living in a hoarder yard along with 30+ cats. At Christmas the hoarder called me to tell me there is a cat that screams when he eats. I told him that this is probably stomatitis and I must take the cat to give her injections with antibiotic and steroid and then return the cat back. The truth was more dramatic, sadly. The cat had a badly broken jaw on two places. No one knows how this happened. Most likely it was some dog or human kick.
We named the cat Joaquin and vets immediately operated him because his jaw was almost falling apart and Joaquin was trying to put it back in place with his paw. He felt immense pain and had not been eating properly since Christmas.
Now the boy is operated but he is having trouble to get out of anesthesia. He keeps low temperature (36 C) and has not been eating on his own.
He has also stomatitis and calici. His tongue is in wounds but it has also injure there. The only good thing is that his blood work is okay.
He had to move out of the clinic because he was dangerous for other cats there. So, we had to move him to a second clinic with intensive care.
Joaquin seems a strong boy and we pray that he manages to recover and maybe finds a home, who knows...
Please, send some positive energy to this poor guy!
