Alas, I just found out that the cat has Calici, (with mouth ulcers)which, according to Cat Fancy magazine, is potentially fatal, and even after the cat is cured, he will always be a carrier.
Someone also told me that the cat can have nothing to eat except this expensive Gerber baby food , but this food has nothing but meat, water, and corn starch, and I've been making my own baby food with meat, water, and no corn starch, so why can't I use that instead???
(There's a lot of misinformation out there...)
Today he's been eating again - eating a lot, and running around, so I assumed he was getting better, but this same someone told me that he could still drop dead any minute if I don't feed him nothing but Gerber meat 7 times a day. And we doesn't like it, so he won't eat it. So he's getting weak again.
If he'll always be a carrier, then I can't bring him out to the shelter anyhow, so he will probably have to be put down...
Any opinions at all?
