Luna, our 12 year old kitty began losing weight. Last week she stopped eating and drinking. Saturday morning DH took her into the vet where she was diagnosed. Since Saturday we have been force feeding her ($1.59 per can) , giving her 3 kinds of medication and giving her an IV for hydration. She had dropped from 8 pounds to 5.5 pounds and we were not hopeful. However, yesterday, she threw quite a fit when she found her food bowl missing. I called the vet this morning, went back and bought special food for kitties with kidney problems. She ate it like she had never eaten before! She has been perky all afternoon and is looking much better. So, things are looking up but she is not out of the woods yet. She goes back to the vet on Tuesday.
