Please help, I'm crying like you have no idea. But please don't take pitty on me I just want advice. Yesterday, a orange and white cat appeared while my mother was outdoors cooking sausage. It meowed, and was very friendly. It is extreamly sick, and thin looking. We fed it supper(wet cat food), and I pet it for 3 hours. We got my dogs puppy carrier, put it on the deck and put blankets in it and on it, the cat slept there that night. He does not appear to been grooming himself,( poorly kept coat) and is not looking very good, so we called the vet, and he has an appointment on Wednesday. My mother is worried he has feline leukemia, so she said if he tests positive she will tell the vet to euthanize him. We have a very anxious dog, so we can't let the cat inside, despite the fact it keeps trying to get in ( it was obviously was pet, it doesn't mind the dog, wants the house and is friendly). If the cat tests negative, he is on the WAITING list of the spca, but can't be taken yet, so what would I do in the mean time, since we are going on a three day trip next week, and I'm so confused what to do. He doesn't deserve this, he barely left the carrier today, except to poo once. I can't stop crying, because the dog also hasn't hip problems and we don't know how long she has. Help, I'm drowning in tears. And my brother walked up to me today and asked me "So are we going to kill it? How long?". It. His NAME is Decker, and he Is my beautiful little kitty.
