UPDATE: stacy just stopped by. her medical opinion is "this kitty needs to be on IV fluids. she (it's a she) might not make it till tomorrow, you need to take her to the vet hospital."
however, after she'd said that, she was able to convince kitty to eat more and drink a lot of water.
so the plan is ... we're going to take her over to vhup at about 9 tonight. i have two shoots in the meantime.
