Got him to the vet and hopefully a new home lined up
Thanks guys. I was able to get him to the vet this morning, thank goodness. I was afraid I might not be able to get him into the carrier this time but after one aborted attempt and a couple of little scratches I was able to get him safely inside. I had some Feliway at home and this time sprayed the blanket and inside of the carrier with it pretty good and I believe it helped a lot.
Like I said he is homeless at the moment. He has a problem with his right eye, could be conjunctivitis according to the girl at the vet's office, I don't know. Yesterday afternoon when I saw him his eye was completely scabbed over and it scared me, I didn't know what might have happened. Soon after he must have cleaned it off and it didn't look good but I tried to carefully clean around it the best I could and knew I had to get him to the vet right away. He also appears to have worms, tapeworms I imagine.
Anyway, I told the vet to check him out completely, give him all his shots and do whatever needs to be done to fix whatever may be wrong with him. Hopefully I have a new family for him to go home to. I am praying it all works out for him and he gets to go to a nice, safe and loving home. I would appreciate your prayers for him also.
