Mittens Update

Mittens seems to feel pretty good, although, she doesn't eat much. I have tried everything I can think of, including baby food. She will eat canned chicken but seems to prefer the juice so I keep adding water and letting it soak. She eats a few crunchies, but not enough. She is taking her steroids in a pill pocket, but if she won't eat them I have decided not to force her to take them, anymore. It is so upsetting for her; and me. All in all, she is doing very well. Thanks for all your wonderful comments.

    Sounds like you have a good plan to keep Mittens and you happy as things progress. Lovely picture of her soaking up the sunshine.

    I am glad that in general she is doing well. Our Georgia didn't eat much at all for several weeks but she seemed so happy--I think so long as they are content that is a good thing.

    You may want to try sprinking Brewer's Yeast on her food. I did that with Fiver whn she did not want to eat and she would lap it up (Coincindentally getting some food in the process). Be sure to get the diet supplement, deactivated rather than activated. I found it at Whole Foods, but most health food stores would have it.

    Oh, oh! We are glad Mittens had a good day, but our hearts are saddened by the news she will not be with much longer. You all have our purrs and hugs and puppy cuddles.

    We are sending you both our purrs and prayers. We hope Mitten's appetite picks up.

    Have you tried sprinkling a little bit of Nutritional Yeast on her foods? I will eat almost ANYTHING with some of that on top. My Mommeh had to stop giving it to me for a little while because I refused to eat anything unless it had some nutritional yeast on top. It's yummy!

    Is there an oral liquid version of steroids? I fought takin my thyroid pills real hard, but Im OK with the liquid version...

  • Blogger William posted at 6:18 PM  
    I wonder if she'd like some butter...or mayonnaise...or both! (Just don't get that weird gravy stuff in a bottle that's supposed to entice cats to eat [Mom tried it with Eddie]--oh, yuk, that was gross.)
