We took Basil to the vet. His spirits are still high. He made friends with the three other patients there. The doctor took blood and assessed him. He also came to the conclusion that we should not give up on him, yet. The will to live is still in his bone. It's just that he doesn't have much of an appetite. When the blood work returned, we found out that his kidneys and pancreas are not doing well. The vet suggested to put him in the hospital for hydration. miss_sophia will come to my house tomorrow afternoon and take him there. Here's hoping that we can buy him a few more years.
