A quick update - Freckles has taken a turn for the worse. He's not eating much and I'm having a hard time getting his pills into him. The only thing he's interested in is drinking out of the toilet, and he's having problems with his balance once he's on the toilet seat. So I am sending him to the Bridge on Tuesday. I was given the option of bringing him in sooner, but I want his regular vet (it's a 6 vet practice) there and he seems comfortable enough for the moment.
Thanks for all your support.
