We recently adopted a cat from APS of Durham who happened to be very sick. When we picked him up they told us that he had an upper respiratory infection and should continue being on antibiotics. We were fine with that. However when we got him home we noticed many other health issues. He wasn't eating or drinking and was also throwing up and having diarreha. The vet said he was a very sick cat, and didn't seem optimistic about him getting better. We could have immediately returned him to the shelter, but couldn't knowing he would probably be put to sleep soon after arriving there. We are quite disappointed that APS of Durham did not inform him of his condition before taking him home. So if you are planning on adopting from APS of Durham make sure you ask lots and lots of questions before-hand.
