Condition today is markedly worse - seems painful- laying in back of kennel- not moving- plaintive yowling. No appetite- hasn't used lietterbox- dehydrated today. Unable to stand. rear limbs are remarkably stiff now. Recommend humane euthanasia- as cat is clearly suffering and pain is not being controlled adequately- if at all.
