Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Now I have to say that I am very worried about your lad.

Finding him collapsed, unable to rise, and withdrawn in an out of the way odd place is something we can see when cats are severely unwell or hurt and feel that they may be about to pass away. Therefore, I appreciate you are worried about lifting him, but you really need to get a thick towel and to pick him up safely get him inside. And I have to say that if he is collapsed, weak, dehydrated or injured; we'd really want him to his vet urgently. Because as he is, he is telling us that he is giving up and may die if left as he is.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
