    My poor boy Tom is not wel. He has swollen joint at his feet, and keeps his feet closed/curled. He is too weak to walk.
    About 3 weeks ago he had a round of antiobiotics. His sinuses were swollen and had watery eyes. Now this.

    I'm using Google as a last resort to find out what's wrong. Any help or tips how to comfort him or what's wrong would be great. I'm so devastated right now. He is separated from the others until I can figure out 100% what is wrong. He's kept himself from the others all day and has not ate or drank. Since he is one that will eat from my hand I'm going to give it a shot in a few to see how it goes
