Tielfan and Mentha - I think you must be right....and whatever the reason, so glad 24 hours later just got done with a feeding and he seems to be doing better still!! Dally, I think after going through this with him, chances are excellent that I will be keeping him!! If I change my mind for some reason, I know I will be meticulous about who I would adopt him out to.
Chez - glad you got back online!! lol I've been going nearly insane myself :0)
