Comm cat Blackie is in the house

Our commcat Blackie needed urgent help so we catnapped him and sent him to the vet.  He has kidney problems with his creatinine on 2.9 and his BUN values were high. His X-ray confirmed his cough and phlegm problems as well. He was given 250 ml SubQ at the vet's and we brought him to acupuncture to help him with his chest. 

It seemed he may have been in many fights as his top saddle was too tough for the SubQ needle as well as the acupuncture needles. But at least we managed to help him through. 

He was very good at acupuncture so we were very relieved. 

Yesterday was his 2nd SubQ and acupuncture and already he has not coughed or sneezed at all. He will stay with me for another week as he has to go back to the vet for review of his cough and kidney test. 

He has an even temper with a soft meow. I am trying to get him re-homed so he won't have to stay in the carpark and get sick again. But of cos it difficult to re- home a black cat and one that has kidney issues will be even more difficult but one step at a time. 
         Sleeping in safety in my kitchen. 
Popps was not at all pleased that we have a cat in her kitchen. She screamed and threw such a fit and spent much time patrolling the house.

Thank you for caring for this dear boy. He is beautiful and I hope he finds his forever home. I love black cats - my new kitty, Holly, is black, and a very sweet cat. I hope this lovely boy gets better.
