Timmy is a brown tabby that is possible 3 years old. Finder noticed the cat wandering in his building but very friendly. Finder decided to hold on to the cat but the cat appeared ill. The cat was not eating or using the bathroom. Timmy was introduced to a neutered DSH cat that was 5 years old. The cats played chase and lounged around the house together. Timmy enjoyed a diet of Friskies wet food. He was litter box trained but appeared to have difficult using the bathroom. He became lethargic within the 3 days in finder’s home.
Timmy during intake appeared sick and laying on its side and slowly breathing. He meowed when picked up. Minimal handling was done. But he was friendly and allowed to be petted.
