Oh sad!!! Are cats allowed that nutritional paste, the sugar paste you can give dogs merely for nutrition? I had to give that to Max when he woudn't eat. You put it on their nose and they lick it off. It has a lot of calories. Poor kitty. Sorry Peanut, welcome to mommy hood.

Hi Jen,
That is such a great idea! I used that nutritional paste for my yorkie who came to me very under nourished.

Hi Peanut,
My daughter told me that the vets carry something called recovery formula and no cat or dog can refuse it, it's so yummy and they give this to animals when they are nursing them back to health. Also some type of food call A/D. Maybe you could ask your vet if they have something like this.

Just a thought, my animals won't eat tuna but love salmom. They have expensive tastes. lol Hope you have luck with something so she doesn't have to be hospitalized.
Good luck!
Hugs, Piper

We tried to have pets. At least my kids did. But, our pets were Doomed from the get go. We just didn't know it. We bought a small 8 week old black lab. He was infested with pin worms and the vet took the name of the owner that sold us the dog and reported him. All his dogs were sick. He would never have been able to run let alone walk. So we got our money back. Then we had a kitten my husband brought home from work. He jumped up on my husbands shoulder on his way home from work and slipped and fell out the window onto the expressway medium. So my husband pulled over and got him and he was ok. We had him about 6 months and he got feline lukemia. So he died and then my mom bought my youngest son a rabbit. And we were out in the yard one day talking with our neighbors and the rabbit was running around with the kids in the neighborhood when the neighbors dog jumped the fence and bit the rabbit in the neck and he died. So, we got tired of the kids getting so upset we chose not to try again. We just enjoy all the fish in our lake. Oh! and we had fish. Expensive fish. We went away for a couple days and the heater malfunctioned. Our fish were all dead when we got home. So now we enjoy all the birds and turtles coming out of the ground and the cute little frogs. We have a yard of animals we get to enjoy. I take pictures now of all the little birds being born and getting feathers and my hummingbirds are always a joy. Enough. Sheryl

what a sad story Sheryl. that's my story in regards to plants. I don't always kill them but they always somehow die.

Ari is eating all kinds of things: bits of a q-tip, a taste of my husband's bean dip and beef sausage (hubby must stop feeding kittie) and a little bit of real cat food. She's very active now. I think it was that vit-B 12 shot. I'm getting one for me on Sat. I hope I have as much energy as she's had these last 2 days. I'm nervous about leaving her home. I had to scramble to wash all the dishes tonight lest she hop up on the counter and lick all the left over bits. I think we're in for trouble, fun trouble.

Thanks for the thoughts and wishes for Ari. I still haven't heard the results of her blood tests. Hopefully it will all be good.

Oh Sheryl...
Those are sad situations, but I'm glad you have the joy of wildlife in your realm :)
In my mother's yard live rabbits... as a result, our little dog has enjoyed them and they've come to realize she's not a threat!

Pets, whether they be domestic or wild... they're awesome, aren' t they?!
