There is a thread on here with his background and history, but basically he is an old, painfully thin stray with bad teeth - I wanted to give him a week or so of eating before booking him in for his dental, but he went off his food on Thurs, so he is booked in for Tues, and trying to get him to eat enough till then - took him to the vets yesterday who gave him an ab jab, Vit B12 and Diazepam for an appetite stimulant - sadly it had more of a sedative action on him, and he could hardly walk for hours yesterday - he still isn't great 24 hours later. I syringe fed him something yesterday, and he took some cat milk on his own, and then ate a small amount overnight, but back off his food this morning. Vibes that not only can I get him eating enough to get through till Tues, but that his bloods are good, I do have a niggling feeling about him, and am praying that I am wrong.
