hello friends. thanks for the heartwarming comments.
it seems that linden has teeth infection. i thought this existed only in dogs. we were never told when we had adopted him to watch out for his teeth. i feel like a bad neglectful pet owner.
he is staying overnight at the hospital where he can get a blood test, iv and antibiotics. i am relieved that he is not dying, but still very scared since we don't know the extent of his infection.
how can you resist a kitty (as old as he is) like him? it's sad when he's not there to meet us at the door when we get home. he hasn't been doing that for days.
