Bumper is part horse we think, he's a big chap with long limbs and big feet. He gained his name from a lady whose house he visited like it was a restaurant you could come to when you felt like it. There was never an offer to help with the dishes unless it was to lick them clean.He used to be that kind of cat, free wheelin' and that's where he came unstuck.
She said he was clumsy and bumped into things all the time. One night he came back to ask for help. His jaw was hanging. Emergency vet suggested putting to sleep and the scenario was that Bumper had collided with a car and landed in the mud.
Luckily for Bumper the lady asked for basic treatment and took him home with an injection for pain and an antibiotic.
Next day he was taken on by our rescue and admitted by our vets with a broken jaw. Bumper spent several weeks in hospital with two surgeries and the insertion of a plate at the junction of the jaw.
I used to worry about his ability to chew but after finding him in our kitchen with a kg of thawing chicken he had removed from the sink and chewing on the part he had parted the plastic from I didn't worry any more. As his previous feeder said, his hunting abilities seemed fine.
He's not all that impressed by other cats. At this point he doesn't see cat relationships as being of benefit unless they want to donate some of their meals. He's never been aggressive with them, in fact he's had a clout or two from cats half his size and he just slinks off.
Bumper loves people. People love Bumper. When asked recently what his foster carer felt about him the answer was 'Oh, I love him!'
Desexed and is up to date with vaccinations, flea & worming. He has been tested positive for FIV and negative for FeLV.
