I've talked about Kelsey in other threads but she's my old kitty who recently lost her appetite and stopped eating. As I've now learned, when a cat doesn't eat they get liver failure. :( So, now Kelsey is on a feeding tube, which she most likely will have for 4 weeks or more. At the vet clinic, she was on feedings every 4 hours but now that she's just come home, she's on every 6 hours. Her food is a blenderized slurry of 2 cans of Science Diet L/D and 1 can of water and it's truly disgusting to look at. She's got to be confined because of the tube out of her neck so our vet was kind enough to loan us an enormous dog crate. Here she is:
Aw poor kitty! I like her, We're putting our paws and fins together here for a speedy recovery! The good thing is she's eating again, and hopefully after this she'll be an indoor kitty :) (I think it was you trying to get her to be an indoor kitty, right?)
Aww..Poor lil kitty..I know the feeling, I used to have kitty's and one of my kitty's was real sick with kidney disease, and I had to hospitalize him, and give him fluid treatment IV and it was hard..I had to euthenize him on my b-day..long time ago..haven't had a kitty since..I wish you well with your baby..looks like you had him a long time..he is the one in your Avi?
Not so good. She's thrown up her food twice and she's getting grumpier and grumpier to the point where she barely lets me feed her. We actually just got back from dropping her off at the vet clinic for an overnight stay. She needs her bandage changed and they can feed her and keep an eye on her. Waiting for an e-mail back from the vet.
Talked to a guy in the waiting room who had his old cat on a feeding tube for 8 months. He boarded her most of that time because he worked out of town. Wow.
