Hello people. I got quite a few emails regarding Squeak so I thought I would post. He's no better. A few mouthfuls of food and that's it. I've tried tuna and several varieties of soft food, nothing. He shakes his head and I'm wondering if there is a mouth problem. I can barely touch him let alone open his mouth. Mark thinks they poisoned him but I don't. I just followed him around the house with bowls of vitamin spiked cream, tuna, and catnip treats, but he is not interested. Our mobile vet may work with a feral, but how can I have him here on a certain day at a certain time?
Nothing else I can do. My brother has trapped and taken ferals to the vet when they are very sick and their anxiety and fear makes it cruel. The vets need bloodwork, xrays, and such which is impossible, unless they are so lethargic they don't care. I'm not putting him through that. He is skeletal and weak, obviously something more than worms and very serious. I don't know what he would do trapped in a carrier. Maybe it's something that will resolve on its own, and I can only wait and keep trying to provide some nourishment.
You guys surprised me. I love that stitched cat, even though samplers and santas are all I really care to stitch, yet entries are not what I expected. To answer a few other inquiries, the chart is 30 years old from Stitches from the Heartland called C is for Cat. Should be 18 count over 2 as is my original, but I do them on 26 to 30 count now.
Thanks for your concern. I'll keep you posted, and hopefully there will be better news in a few days.
