My cat, Freddie often tends to go missing for a few days, but always comes back perfectly fine. This time, though, he came back limping, starving, and dehydrated.
He refuses to eat, even though he shows signs of clearly wanting the food we offer him (normal dry food, wet food, tuna, baby food, meat), and at first, he wouldn’t drink water either. We’ve been feeding him baby food with an eyedropper, but he dislikes that quite a bit, and it’s definitely not feeding him enough.
And now it seems to have gotten worse. He’s coughing every few minutes, and there seemed to be a bloody-looking mucus coming from his mouth earlier.
He needs to get to the vet, ASAP, but we don’t currently have the money to pay for a visit and treatment.

Donate here, or PLEASE, PLEASE pass this around wherever and however you can.
I’d really like this to reach today, if it can. He needs to get to the vet as soon as possible.
your words no longer mean anything to me
It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course).
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.
This is precious!
just before the guy gives the morsel to the cat, at the last sign, the cat /nods/.
A guy once told my lesbian friend that being a lesbian is a huge turn off for guys and that she’ll never find a boyfriend.
missin somebody a lot but not wanting to seem clingy
