Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am so sorry to hear about your cat. Will he allow you to pick him up? If so, I would try to find a large cardboard box or a large storage bin (like a big tupperware bin) that are big enough for him. Anything you can get him into to transport him to the vet is better than nothing!

It appears that you are not online, and I have to sign off for the night, so I will open your question back up in case you come back online later, another expert may help you out.

Rose, please consider having a housecall vet come to you. You'll need to google the keywords "veterinary", "housecall", "Ocala".
