He was released from the clinic and he's doing much better. According to his foster mother, Maria, while Blackie may not be 100% his old self, he's definitely improved from the time he was rushed to the vet.
Blackie is eating and drinking fairly well, and is beginning to show signs of friskiness. For example he jumps on furniture and darts out of the bathroom every time. Blackie also wants to drink out of the dog's water bowl, not his own, since dog's bowl is same level and therefore more accessible. Makes sense.
Right now Blackie is napping in the living room next to the German Shepherd. The sight is so heartwarming, it really makes one realize how precious life is and to appreciate what we take for granted-- shelter, food, water, warmth and companionship.
I can't begin to thank all of you for helping Blackie get the medical attention he needed to save his life. This little "under cat" is deemed unadoptable, but still deserves to have peace, food & shelter until his time comes. May you all have a wonderful holiday season, you are generous & caring human beings.
On behalf of Maria and Blackie, we want to thank you all for your support and to those handful of folks who donated toward his vet bill.
