So Rosanne M. and I got back on the Fire Island ferry today and rescued a sick cat we saw while we were there on Monday. This cat is so sick but he is now at my vet's for the night, getting fluids, pain meds, antibiotics, and tomorrow will begin steroids. A full blood workup is being done. He was such a good boy on the ride back to the main island! Not a peep! We are raising funds for his vet bill. He may have scabies or just a very severe flea infection; he is thin; he also needs dental work. His jaw was so swollen that we thought he might have been kicked in the face. Nope, but he does have severely infected teeth. My vet said he has likely been in a LOT of pain. This cat is so trusting, so affectionate.” PLEASE HELP US HELP HIM.
