Oatmeal, our handsome foster kitty, is not feeling well. It's been about 2 days that he hasn't been eating or drinking properly. Last night, I did manage to tempt him with some catnip and treats which he ate about 40 of. But he is not well. He is lethargic and not himself at all. And it worries me that I have NO IDEA why. There is no sneezing, eye maladies, or discharge…

 I put in a call this am to one of our more lenient vets but she cannot fit him in for a week! He needs treatment NOW and I am completely strapped! I used the last of my Care Credit for other emergencies with Panda and Evan. There is no "cushion" anymore. Oatmeal's Humans themselves are in a tough spot and cannot come up with the aprox $300 to get him the IV fluids and complete blood tests I'm sure he will need if he doesn't pep up TODAY!

To make matters worse, today is Oatmeal’s birthday! I should be plastering his beautiful happy self all over FB and celebrating this beautiful soul for his family and everyone to see. Instead, my heart hurts to see him looking so sad and was heavy when I told his family last night I think he will NEED vet care...

I knew from the start that Oatmeal was a special boy, but not until last night, did I know just HOW SPECIAL. This is what his Human “mom” wrote to me last night when we were discussing what to do.

Oatmeal was one of a litter from my old neighbor. When Kaleb, my son, saw him he bonded, which isn’t easy for him. Kaleb has Asperger’s and he doesn’t handle emotions or physical touching too well. When he and Oatmeal met, I watched an awesome miracle. Kaleb started to feel and touch and be touched. He opened a part of Kaleb that had been closed off. Oatmeal touched a part of Kaleb, a protective part, a loving part and a part that found humor. This miracle I  owe completely to our male fur baby ! Without Oatmeal, I would never have seen my son evolve and grow into the amazing man he is.  Btw...May 20th is Oatmeal’s birthday.

PLEASE HELP ME get Oatmeal the care he needs, for his sake and for Kaleb and their family.
