    I was given a tom bobcat that weighed 48 lbs and has beutiful black spots. The problem is this cat has been a freezer for 3 yrs uncovered. The ears are freezer burned pretty bad. Would it be possible to take stop rot and inject the ears with a small insulin needle so that I might get the ears to open? I would hate to lose this cat! THANKS
  2. Yes it will work great. Soak the outside skin too. You may have to use it on the nose pad and feet too.

    Yes I did a cat in similar condition and managed to salvage it. Bobcats are always worth saving if you can. Just keep injecting and soaking as you go. It will take some time though, so keep after it.
