Here's the thing - I really cannot responsibly take him because I lived with Tommy's illness for almost a year and you can only imagine how heartbreaking it was to see him appear to get better, then get worse, over and over. I really don't have money to even care for myself properly at this point in time, and for Tommy's care, a guardian angel actually paid for a lot of his costs. I can't take a cat in hoping for the best, because I've seen that relapses can and usually do occur and those cost - a lot. Having been in the position where I would lie on the floor with sick Tommy and cry and tell him if I only had the money I'd get him to a vet.... I can't go there again for my sanity and for the sake of this other cat. Yesterday, they said that cat could be adopted, if the adopter was willing to medicate - which lord knows now I have lots of experience in, but as I said, money-wise, I just can't do it. IF.... IF they would let me, I'd FOSTER him in a heartbeat, but since they're saying they're giving him the OK for adopting out, that wouldn't be an option.
