Jazmin is Eating!!! Update
« on: August 24, 2006, 02:20:22 am »
All by herself!!! YAY!! Fortunately Jaz didn't get her other feeding tube in because the vet had to order a different one. I got to bring Jaz home and was suppose to take her back today. However last night she started eating catfood. I'm so happy!!!

She does need to eat more then what she's getting tho. :-\ So what if your cat's favorite treat? It can be anything from people food to cat treats. The vet just as long as she eats something. I tried soft catfood, tuna and pork. She loves marshmellows, so I'm going to the store today.

Good!

When mine were not well they loved jars of baby food, turkey, chicken, and beef.

YAY Jaz!  She has to be feeling tons better to be eating so soon, that's great!  I agree with the baby food idea.  Years ago my cats loved any kind of lunchmeat.  One of my kitties, Bailey, had gotten very sick and my vet had given me some really gross canned cat food to feed.  It actually entices them to eat and it's loaded with calories and good stuff to get them healthy again, you may want to call your vet to see if that have that kind of food.  I can't think of the name of it at the moment, but your vet may know.

I have the pickiest cat ever!! I went to the store and bought salmon, crab, stinky 9 lives soft catfood, chicken, sliced turkey and she wouldn't eat any of it. :-\ I also got hard seafood flavor treats, liver treats made for cats and of course marshmallows. Those she ate, go figure.

I also heard from the vet he wants to put her on a Science Diet hard catfood made for nursing moms and kittens. I guess it entices them to eat and is packed with calories. At least it's only temporary until she puts wieght back on.

I just talked to the vet and Jazmin is not eating enough food. :( My poor girl is going to have the feeding tube put in on monday. I'm still hoping that this weekend she starts scarfing down food!

OK Ms. Jaz you NEED to eat!  April I think you're going to have to sit her down and have a heart to heart talk about this!  I really hope she starts eating soon!  I'd try the baby food, chicken stock, veggie stock, beef stock, anything to entice her to chow down! lol

Jazmin is doing well. She's a very happy cat! She's drinking plenty of water, but the food is still an issue. I put 2/3 cups of food down on friday and she's only eaten half. :( She's going in for her feeding tube on monday. Hopefully she won't have it in very long. Good luck with the kittens!

April, if you haven't already, try a jar of meat baby food. Put a little on her nose with your finger. We've always had success.
