Madi did not eat much at all today.
I bought several new foods and even browned her some lean hamburger.
Her vet was off on today but the assistant on the phone. She told me the vet on call might recommend an appetite stimulant
and science diet formula for digestive tract issues.
I picked up both. Got the pill in her at about 4 and was told it would take ~24 hours to work. When we were cooking supper, at about 5pm, her Dad asked if I thought Madi would eat if she had ham mixed in her cat food. We mixed in some ham and turkey. She had to lick the cat food off to get to the deli meat.
This was the most she had eaten all day and this was well before the
appetite stimulant should have started working.
10 points for Dad.
We will see her vet tomorrow at 3:30.
Madi Mom here:
Madi had a good sleep last night, no tummy distress.
We are giving her small meals several times a day.
This morning she has had 2 servings of fishy goodness.
I have 3 kinds of kibble here that she likes or has liked.
She has a kibble buffet fit for a Diva.
She has sampled all of them this morning.
We will continue with the Cerenia and call her vet back
on Thursday with an update.
Thank you so very much for all your meows, barks and prayers
Madi and Mom
We are asking for your thoughts and prayers for our own dear Madi.
Our First Feline Mayoress of Blogville is having several health concerns, likely due to or complicated by, age. Although she can still twerk with the best of them, her body is just not cooperating. Most concerning is the rate at which she is losing weight (from 9 pounds to 6.5 pounds).
We're hopeful that her vet can get her through this and back to good health. In the meantime, please send POTP for Madi, her mom and dad, and for her vet to make the best decisions for the course of her treatment.
