SOS. This cat needs help. I had trouble getting people to assist me to bathe the cat before I send it to the vet for treatment. They felt squeamish because the cat was a sight.
This is the time I miss my student Shafiq the most. When he was studying at the college, Shafiq would help me bathe and treat the injured cats and kittens. His juniors are scared if the cat or kitten looks ugly from wounds, injuries or sickness. Finally I had to clean this sick cat by myself.
