My boy is doing ok today, he is about the same.  He is sleeping right now. 

I've been joking that he does not understand what is wrong with these hoomins!  The vets shaved him for the ultrasound and Bear doesn't understand why, and I have to force feed, give meds, and give him fluids every day.  He must think that hoomins just like to pick on the sick kitty, poor guy!

Here are a couple pics from today, please don't tell him that I am putting his "bad hair" pics all over the "internets" he would be ashamed!  lol! I am a baaad meowmy! =)
He likes for me to rub his bald belly! =)  I am happy to comply!

     The bottom of his belly is pretty yellow too. I can't tell he is yellow until I hold him in front of a sunny window (or take a pic with flash) because my lighting makes his skin look like it's a normal color. Stupid energy saver lights!

That is chicken that he is eating, I have to pull it apart into small pieces for him. The flash made it look werid though.  Those are Temptaion treats in the other bowl, he loves those too! He makes a mess with the cat litter, I try to keep his crate clean but he keeps flinging the cat litter out of the box!  He is used to the tall rubbermaid boxes I use for litter boxes, not the little litter box he has now! He manages to get half of the litter out of the box, almost every day, lol!  He is OCD about his litter box, he has to scratch for 3-5 mins before he is satisfied. He tries to be clean. =)

I still have to kep him seperate, the vet said there is still a small chance that Bear may have FIP.  He did mention that it is less likely that he has it, but we can not rule it out until Bear's liver levels go down. I keep him in a very big dog crate in, he likes to watch me and the other cats.
I could put him in the bathroom or laundry room, but he would cry. He has to be able to see me and the other cats.  He is content in the cage and doesn't cry, I get him out all of the time and hold him. <3

We want to thank everyone for their donations so far!!! 
We still need a little help to get his bloodwork in 2 weeks, it will be $52.  He will also need a medicine refill, more SubQ fluids, and more cans of R food if he still isn't eating enough. 
Thank goodness that the clinic is not charging us for exams anymore!

I would be so worried about how to pay the vet, if it wasn't for everyone's kindness.

Bear sends purrrs, headbutts, and his love!

    I am mommy to 6 cats and a doggy, we live in North Carolina. I am a college student trying to take the best care of my animals. Right now I have been very busy trying to nurse Bear back to health, but due to the lack of money, I need your help!
