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.

2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable
3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG
4/2010 Negative biopsy
5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)
5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

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.

So sorry :( I know how hard it is to make the right decision for our furry babies.

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...
