On Oct. 17, 2019 we had a CARE cat returned to us about 3 1⁄2 years after his adoption. Albus is a DLH black and white male, est age 9 years. He originally came to CARE in November of 2015. He suffered from SEVERE ulcerated lesions on his neck, chest, forelimbs and the bridge of his nose. The wounds were so bad it was theorized he had been a victim of a chemical burn. Other rule outs included severe infection, severe allergy/eosinophilic granuloma complex or cancer. Albus (named Albie at the time) was treated with antibiotics, steroids and creams. All healed, except he never regrew hair on the bridge of his nose. Albus was adopted Jan. 7, 2016. Albus continued to have periodic ulceration of his nose, requiring periodic antibiotics and steroid injections. One theory is he was suffering from mosquito bite hypersensitivity. Living as an outdoor cat was not healthy for him. Albus was brought to Northwood Oct. 17, 2019. He has sustained a laceration over his left hip, cause unknown. His owner could no longer provide Albus the care he needed so she relinquished him back to Northwood. The wound was sutured. Albus was also treated for a flea infestation. His nose was broken out and that was treated as well. Albus’ skin looks pretty good now (though the bridge of his nose will always be bald). Albus is a senior cat. He needs to live out his life as a pampered indoor pet, protected from those pesky mosquitoes and fleas that seem to aggravate his skin.
