Well, when I got home from work today, he was in his same spot. He looked up at me, and I just knew something wasn't right. He jumped down and drank and ate, but it looked like it was kind of hard for him to walk, and he was moving very slow. I called a vet about 30 miles away, and they agreed to stay open until I could get there. He slept the whole way in the car, and didn't even care that we were in the car. He had 104 fever, but the vet didn't really know what was wrong. They kept him , but I guess that's what needed to be done. The vet said that his bladder felt really full, so maybe he has a UTI. He was going to stay for a couple of hours with him to see if he would use the litter box, and if not he was going to put in a catheter. I just feel so awful that I didn't get him there sooner! I knew he was acting weird, but it is so hot here, and I just thought that maybe he was enjoying the air conditioning. He has always been my lazy baby! Please pray for my sweet little boy. I hope it's just a uti and nothing worse. I can call and check on him first thing in the morning, and I can't wait!
