Bourbon came to the Bradford County Humane Society as a stray kitten from the Towanda area, but he was so sweet and loving it seemed as though someone should be looking for him.
He was already neutered, which led to more thinking that he might have folks. But no one claimed him.
The sweet playful Bourbon had a problem that no one anticipated, he had a puncture wound on his side from his days on the streets in Towanda, which the veterinarian says was not inflicted by an animal. This small puncture wound led to an abscess that almost killed the young kitten last weekend. He got lethargic, stopped playing, and became limp and was taken to the emergency veterinarian, who drained the deep abscess and stitched up the wound.
It looks like he will be fine after some recovery time. But in the meantime, his veterinary bills have skyrocketed to $900 (emergency veterinary care can be expensive).
If anyone wishes to help Bourbon and his new parents, please send a donation to BCHS marked for Bourbon to Bradford County Humane Society, P.O. Box 179, Ulster, Pa. 18850.
