I don't know what to think. He's doing SO much better this morning.
When I brought him home yesterday, he hid from me. He didn't want me touching him. He just looked horrible. But as the evening wore on, he quit hiding and didn't mind being petted. And he ate.
This morning, he was sleeping in the window and even played with my fingers a little. He purred. He got up and ate kibble. A while later I saw him on the patio, eating the kibble I toss out in the morning (I fail to understand why the cats seem to prefer the exact same kibble that fills the feeders when it's tossed out onto the patio).
Then? He was loving on his blankie. I' m sure many of you have known a kitty who grabs up a piece of cloth in his mouth, starts to knead and purr and do some sort of nasty dance with it. Well, Captain is doing that this morning. He's done it twice that I know of. He hasn't done that in weeks. I'm taking videos of him. I've had to change the camera batteries twice since yesterday afternoon.
So, he's feeling much better. Will today be the day? Watching him right now, I can't see it happening.
Like Brian said, his time won't be long with us, but maybe it won't be today.
I sure hope not.
