As we previously mentioned, Jack the Cat, who was lost at JFK Airport for over two months was finally found.
Before being sent home to his owner he had to stay at a veterinary hospital because he was dehydrated from being on his own for so long.
But new details have just been released about Jack's condition.
First, it turns out he was found when he literally fell from the sky.
"He fell through a ceiling tile in the customs office. Somebody in the customs room saw him and contacted American."
So after suffering the fall, and weeks of malnourishment, Jack is in critical condition at the hospital.
He is being fed through a nasal tube, receiving medication via IV, getting blood pressure support and wearing a cone.
A rep from the animal hospital said:
"Jack is still critical at this time. He has shown some improvement, but the biggest issue is some life-threatening skin wounds that are present.
He is severely muscle-wasted and has evidence of fatty liver syndrome, which lets us know his malnourishment was pretty chronic."
As for now, they're saying Jack is at "50-50," though his body temperature and blood pressure are improving and he's showing more interested in eating food on his own.
His owner is going to go to New York to be with Jack, and begin to make preparations to take him home.
We really hope Jack pulls through this.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to Jack and his owner.
