Valentino the cat got to a Los Angeles shelter with numerous sores on his skin, hardly being able to see anything because of the dried blood on his face. Shelter staff were afraid to get close to him or touch him without a vet's examination, suspecting he had contagious ticks. But it was a weekend and the vet could only examine him the next day.

The cat's illness has proved not to be contagious. Valentino has a low blood glucose level and because of that, bacteria is growing on his skin, causing microcracks.
