Aw, good for little Wobbles. Sweet guy. I hope too very much that you get him and Bean in the next month or so.

Sadly no...Wobs still won't eat and he's still acting lethargic. I think he's just in a lot of pain. The stuff they sent me home with was essentially ducky Motrin, and it shouldn't be having a bad reaction, I think it's just not enough to allow him to eat and drink. I've given him some water via syringe, which just stressed the poor guy out even more, but I had no choice - he needs fluids! I don't have the means nor the money to tube feed or IV him, though. The vet trip yesterday totally cleaned out my account and since I've had nothing but trouble finding work I just don't know what to do.
Vet opens in an hour, if anything I can get advice from Dr. Strunk. He won't even eat peas or watermelon, the poor thing...
If you were closer I'd give you a tube and syringe... Can you scrounge up $10? That's about how much (at most) it should cost to get a tube and syringe.

Thats super sweet of you, but I think it's okay. Wobbles will eat, but only on his terms. I keep hand-feeding him and last night I guess the hunger finally took hold and he just tore into his food bowl! This morning he's back to picky hand-feeding. I'm starting to think he's gotten used to the star treatment and is just being a diva at this point...
