Picture of Tilapia fish skin burn treatment on cat’s flank

WARNING – THE PICTURE MAY DISTURB SOME PEOPLE. I THINK IT IS ACCEPTABLE: This is a cat picture which I think is worth republishing on this website. It certainly caught my eye. It was taken by the Nebraska Humane Society.

I hope Google AI for Adsense accepts it. You know that the people who run the Google adverts (called Adsense) use artificial intelligence (AI) to ensure that images comply with their policies. They don’t like real stuff like this even if it is all for the better and improves cat welfare. Perhaps their AI computer will be confused by seeing a catfish 🙂 . Sorry for being facetious when this is a serious matter.

This cat was burned in the much publicised California wildfires. His name is King and Fox42 tells us that he was pulled from a burning home just before Christmas.

He was treated at the Nebraska Humane Society (NHS). He had 50% burns. The Tilapia fish is eaten by humans. So this is a very useful fish.

This fish skin contains large amounts of moisture and type I collagen proteins at levels comparable to human skin. This prevents scarring while promoting the healing of wounds. – World Innovation Summit for Health.

BELOW ARE SOME MORE STORIES ON BURNS. ONCE AGAIN YOU, THE VIEWER, CAN DECIDE IF THESE STORIES ARE ACCEPTABLE TO YOU. I THINK THEY ARE BECAUSE THIS IS THE REAL WORLD. WE HAVE TO FACE IT AND DEAL WITH IT. AND THIS IS HOSPITAL TREATMENT. IT IS POSITIVE FOR CAT WELFARE.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
