Joey

Joey wasn't any better at all yesterday, so last night I called an emergency vet clinic & talked to a vet there. She told me to start syringe feeding him chicken baby food & pedialyte. My sister went to the store & got some, then drove a half hour to bring them to me so I wouldn't have to leave Joey.

I've been feeding him about every 4 hours & he seems to being doing some better. He is still very weak, but he is starting to fight me during his feedings so I take that as a good sign. He even came in & got in bed with me this morning, he rarely did that before he got sick. He even ventured into the kitchen awhile ago, so he must be getting a little strength back.
I have to go babysit for 3 or 4 hours tonight & I hate to leave him, but I need the money.

Thank you all for your purrs, purrayers & prayers. Hopefully he will get well & not leave me. He's only been here for about 2 1/2 months, but I can't imagine my life without him.
