Q. A cat is in the cold garage cat I want to help says has diarrhea she said for months since a kitten. Could I be risking great expense and heartbreak

A. you should bring him inside the house as he needs to be in a warm place. Kitten diarrhea could be caused by a simple gastrointestinal infection (which is treatable quiet easily), worms (needs to be de-wormed if not done so yet - kitten wormer can be bought from petshop) or panleukopenia virus (severe viral infection that can lead to death if left untreated). This cat needs to see a vet, it might not be that expensive if it's a mild infection (mainly antibiotic treatment and some diet changes) but he needs a warm environment to give him a chance to recover.
