Sirius

This is Sirius, an adult male. He came in a few days ago after being found trapped in a plastic garden storage container for several days. It is believed he went in there when the door had been left open and then nested in some rubbish and bubble wrap plastic.

He was severely dehydrated and very hungry. He also has some loss of spikes due to the fungal infection ringworm and a heavy infestation of mites.

After being given sub-cutaneous fluid and a dish of cat meat he was given time to calm down, before being bathed to rid him of the mites and help to clean his skin.

He will spend a little time with us until the spikes have re-grown on his back to give him sufficient protection from predators, before being released.
