If you don't want to loose him then your only alternative is to take him to the vet.

Beg, borrow, do what it takes to take him to one.

Pet lovr 4 life, you MUST take your cat to a vet. How old is he? It may not be worms, it could be something like diabetes, hyperthyroid, kidney disease, all of which are treatable, but only if you know what you're dealing with. There are organizations that provide financial aid for those who can't afford veterinary care, so check out these links:

Most require a diagnosis first, so like Love4himies said, beg, borrow, or pawn some stuff to get your cat to a vet. Apply for Care Credit (link above). Do whatever it takes, you owe your cat that much.

I can't offer anything more than the others BBers' did. Beg, borrow, credit card, whatever it takes (legal) to get him to the vet, get him there. It is crucial! Good Luck :pray::fingerscr:goodvibes:
