Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to help you. It is very important to get your cat's fever down. You can place a towel over his back area and then also place some ice packs next to him against the towel. Also let me know if you have any antibiotics of any type because your cat should probably be on antibiotics. You will have to sit with him with the ice packs and check his temp every 15 minutes. Stop the cooling process when he gets down to 103f. Let me know if you have any antibiotics......and I can recommend a dose. I hope this helps you. dRB
