The Mystery Kitty

Shoback was found running loose as a stray in a rural area of Wisconsin and brought to a shelter. The staff thought he might be a Sphynx and contacted SPCR.  Four paw declawed and virtually naked, this poor kitty (breed completely unknown) is covered from nose to tail with sores and blackheads, like the worst possible full body acne. His foster mom has never seen anything like it in 20 years. Shoback is as sweet as he is sad looking…constantly purring and so happy to be somewhere safe, indoors and with plenty of food. He is currently being treated with a regimen of baths, antibiotics and salves but has a very long way to go. He will need to be seen by a specialist for his skin issues and more tests are ahead.
