BUT, I took him to the vets and they are keeping him overnight. He is very dehydrated, he now has the runs, and his temp was 104. They are going to put him on an IV and give him some antibiotics. Poor kitty. This is going to cost us a pretty penny and I don't like to sink that kind of money into something to just give it away. But Im NOT saying yes...yet

Also, he did test negative for feline leukemia, "whew"

After you spend all that money, you might as well keep him!

I just talked to the vets again. His temp. went down this morning and then back up again. They may want to keep him another night. I asked how much the bill was at this point.. $230.00!!!

What the Heck am I gonna DO?? I told them I can't afford to keep him there another night, and they said to call back at 4 and if his temp is the same or goes down again, I can come get him. I don't want to tell my husband how much this is costing. Needless to say, we are keeping the darn thing, whether I want to or not!!

Sorry to hear about the vet bill but I believe fate brought him to your door to get him help. I believe despite the cost,it was meant to be! Good luck!

I got to bring him home. He does look a little better now that he is hydrated. But the poor thing cant stand to be left alone. He just cries and cries. My other cats are not happy.

It will take time but it will work out. I honestly believe it was meant to be this way. I know it is hard when the poor little thing cries, but no matter what he is far better off with you than where he was. I am so glad he is doing a bit better.

It sounds to me like that kitty came to your door for some divine reason! Keep him, the family will adjust!
