Feeding Sick Cat

Anybody got any suggestions? Tuna is barely interesting, and only earns a mouthful. Mackerel, salmon treats, and chicken broth didn't even get interest. Chicken breast is currently cooking, so that's on the list.

I think we're off to the vet er in the morning... as our vet can't do an ultrasound for two weeks. It feels absurd, but oh well.

I second that suggestion--chicken or turkey baby food.

My kitties wouldn't touch baby food well or sick. Hopefully the cooked chicken worked. Some will also find some cooked ground beef tasty. I don't usually get the real pricey little bitty cans of cat food for my kitties so when my kitty was ill last year some of those were appealing to her. Hopefully the doctors have figured out what is wrong by now and she is on her way to feeling better. Once they know what is wrong there are meds that the vet can give to increase her appetite.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Sadly, the ultrasound revealed what was likely an unexpected intestinal lymphoma meets hairball blockage; nothing had indicated that could be the problem so the ER vet was surprised. I ended up putting her down, as her overall geriatric/low bp despite fluids/jaundice status was not so great for surgery outcomes, and it seemed like the surgery would be really invasive for not much gain as apparently the lymphomas tend be quite widepread. The surgery was waaaay out of my budget, too.

I'm sorry!. I thought about your kitty today & hoped she would be OK. Sounds like you did the right thing. Even if the surgery was free, doesn't sound like a good idea.

I am so sorry about your loss. It is a hard decision to make, as I know all too well.

I'm so sad for you! When you mentioned the problem with your kitty, I wondered if it was an intestinal lymphoma. I lost a precious kitty to the same disease a few years ago. My heart goes out to you...

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
