I hope the cat gets better, it is always tough to see them in rough shape.
I have such a soft spot for cats too... I would feed half the neighborhood when I was living at my dads-lol
I would put out a big bag of cat food and then put dewormer in the water, we would see that cats from the neighbors actually cross the road and go into the barn to eat. But then it started bringing in other animals (racoons, skunks, etc...) so I just poured out so much everynight.
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
