Baily was rushed to the hospital. He is stable (vitals are good) and in the loving, professional care at the vets. He has a huge open wound in his nasal cavity (multiple punctures) that likely will require surgical correction when he can be further stabilized. Bailey is a tiny kitten with a long uphill battle ahead. This is not a new wound sadly - as he has maggots on his tiny body and face. He had been cleaned up, put on IV fluids and antibiotics, as well as pain meds, was syringe fed and is sleeping comfortably in a big fluffy bed. Now, we can only hope that Bailey will stabilize enough overnight to be transferred for a surgical consult.
Bailey has amazed us with his resilience (and his spice!). Somehow, despite his extensive injuries, including a broken jaw, gaping wound through his nasal cavity, injured leg and maggot infestation, Bailey is a force! When his nurses cleaned his wounds, he pushes them away with the cutest swats ever! His incredible medical team has fallen in love with this tiny warrior, sharing that, “Bailey is a sweet boy, purring and making muffins. Thank you for giving this angel a chance. He is an amazing kitten – very brave and so sweet despite his injuries.”

At just 1.5 pounds, Bailey has a long uphill battle, but he is facing his future bravely and with a lot of opinion! Amazing rescuers, Bailey’s vitals continue to be strong, he is accepting syringe feedings and fighting having his wounds cleaned daily. He is struggling with a fever, which is to be expected with his injuries and infections. Bailey has overcome his first battle – stabilizing enough for the surgical and dental consults he will receive soon to determine the best way to treat his open nasal cavity, broken jaw and injured leg.
