The wonderful people here will give you great information...all I can tell you is to have patience....it must be extremely stressful for poor Spicey. Give him time and a safe place to hide until he is ready to deal with the world on his own terms. My heart breakes for him losing his "mom"...and I bless you for taking this baby into your home (and hopefully your heart)....this disease is cruel and unforgiving. I wish you all luck possible.
