Bilbo is receiving around-the-clock care. He started a new refeeding schedule of small, frequent meals 5 times a day. 💞 Bilbo is gaining energy and weight. Like you, we hope for the best. Our SPCA Enforcement team is leading an extensive and careful investigation. Further details cannot be released relating to the investigation right now. While Bilbo is healing, he is not feeling well enough to entertain adoption interest and is not accepting applications or visitors. 🐾 Our veterinary team continues to monitor him closely and we will continue to spoil Bilbo with cuddles and love from you. Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🥰 *Please note although we appreciate your compassion and empathy for Bilbo, we ask that you refrain from any comments that include profanity or may be considered disrespectful in accordance with our Instagram policy.
