(which untreated can lead to more serious things)? He
may hate the car, but if he was mine, I'd take him in

Cats can dehydrate in a hurry. Whatever it is....you
want to catch it quickly, and if you do, maybe it'll

Thank God I got him to the Vet in time, to save his life!!!!!!! He
was throwing up big time, so I knew I should get him to the Vet. I
knew I could not do anything to help him.!!!!!
