I would post about this on the support list...tell them exactly how much she's eating per day and what you are feeding. I would consider doing either feeding her anything to get her eating right now, or handfeeding her the food you want her to eat (making little meatballs of the wet food, or making a blenderized food that can be syringe fed)

I'm off to (speaking of) assist-feed Tyler and baking my cassata, hope today goes well for both of you

Oh well Miss Sweetie turned into a brat, My daughter & I went to give her the fluid witch I did yesterday at the vets no problem it was perfect no one held her either She wiggled, cried, fussed every witch away so tomorrow I am having my other daughter who is a NA come, plus she is getting smart going under the bed from one side to the other I don't want her to hate me So will have to figure a game plan, Dad will be home on Tuesday night so I will have to train him up

Well, if she's being a brat that means she feels better! That is a good sign sort of.

I took her to the Vet today again as I thought she wasn't acting quit right still not eating very good and I didn't think she was feeling to grand, so she told me to bring her and let her check the Values today, and to my surprise and shock everything is in Normal limits,
The Bun went from 98 to 58 and today it was 19
The Creatin went from 10.2 to 4.2 and today it was 2.4
Red and white count are normal, blood pressure is fine, no infection showing in the blood work,she checked her eyes real good, she did loose a bit of weight from 9 lbs to 8.2 but like I said she was not eating that grand and I think some of it was stress for what she's been through plus every time she saw me I was having to give her something a pill, or antibiotic, or putting food in her face,
But Bless her Heart she has been outstanding such a good girl and so very forgiving to me for all I have had to do, 6 or 7 trips to the Vet she never gave them an ounce of trouble they just Love her to death.
So now we will see how she does and recheck the values in a month if nothing goes wrong in between... Thanks Everyone

Oh Lois, didn't know about the teeth...maybe that's her issue after all, with the not wanting to eat thing...Keep getting better sweet girl
post #197 of 203
Been away for a while, but glad to know Cammie is looking up! Probably her teeth are related to the problem, so good luck in getting them sorted.

Thats fantastic news Lois ........... I know you are so relieved I will continue to send positive prayers and vibes your way

As I noted I had Cammie to the Vet on Saturday 4/14 I took her because she is still not eating, she just licks the food a little bit, I have seen her drink but not for days, what she is doing again is going to the water bowel or in the closet where it is but not drinking, I have been measuring what I put in the bowel. I tried to give her some with a syringe she was not happy, threw a small fit. Bottom line has anyone had a cat that had blood work that was all on the the normal range that still won't eat or drink?
The only thing she ate was a few little soft treats and I think she ate them because she has never had them before. She has not eaten one bite of dry food, she has licked the wet food but you can hardly tell that.
Her throat was infected the first time I took her and that is what they treated her for, then the next time we found out about the kidney thing, I was told that was probably why her throat was sore from the acid. And she does have some bad teeth,
If it is her teeth why would she eat the treats and not drink water or eat the wet food ? I don't get that. And she did eat a few blades of Cat Grass I figured at least that was a small bit of moisture
I don't really know what the heck is wrong I just feel that things aren't a lot better here. I sure as heck am not looking to find something wrong I don't want anything else to be wrong, but she is plain and simple not acting as if she feels any better, Well except she was playing with that addicting DA BIRD Not as whole Hearted as she was though.. I now have her looking my hands every time I go into that room she's going to not trust me in a bit. I know she has been through a lot but she still needs to eat substantially and drink or am I nuts? She will be somewhat dehydrated by today I assume again.. I am trying to figure out if it could be her teeth I can't imagine them being able to really see that well without sedation or am I wrong there to ? I am up and down all night just looking at her. I am going to call the Vet here shortly bigtime

Lois, I wish I had answers for you...but when you talk to the vet ask her if this could be her teeth bothering her. Let us know!!
post #201 of 203
Is she taking antibiotics? That can make her tummy feel icky. There are certain medicines that will give her a better appetite. Also, is her nose stuffed up? If so, that may be why she eats the treats that she can smell, but not the food, which isn't so "smelly". I've heard that you can use Neo-Synephrine "baby noses" drops to unstop their noses. Not like she'd be too pleased with that, though.

When Dillon comes out of the vets, he sulks! When he was in a few years ago, after breaking a leg (another story!) he refused to eat for 5 days, I tried to tempt him with everything in the shop plus all the baby food. I noticed that when I wiped the baby food around his mouth, he licked it, but wouldnt eat anything else, the vet was talking about a tube down his throat when as one last resort, we bought some fish and chips from the fish shop, put him in a basket in the middle of the room, ate half of it and left it on our plates on the floor and went out of the room. We did laugh when we looked through the living room window from the garden and watched him crawl towards it and pinch it! From then on he ate. The vet said "oh he likes to be naughty", well that has always been Dillon. This last easter weekend, when Dillon came out, he refused to eat for two days, he is eating OK now.
Best Wishes
Chris

You know, that reminds me - supposedly cats are unable to resist KFC chicken - minus the bones & skin. Maybe that would jump start her.
