I have been hand-feeding him every couple of hours today and I have
managed to get small amounts into him. It is not much, but it is
regular and it is better than nothing. He will not use his water
bottle but I can get him to take several laps of water from a bowl if
I hold him.

I did see him pee a couple of times today and I did see him poop once
also. So the little bit he is eating is moving through the digestive
system. He is getting tons of love and attention and I will continue
his care through the entire night. As soon as the hospital opens in
the morning, he will be in there.

Thanks for everyone's kind words.
