Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I applaud your attempts to care for Arthur but he can't be effectively treated by you. I work closely with cat rescue organizations who trap these cats and bring them to me to be sedated if necessary and treated appropriately. Google "cat rescue" for where you live and contact them for help.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
