Have to feed the neighbor's kitties for a few days. Spent almost an hour with this little fuzzball.

One of my cats is sick. Wife took him to the vet last week because he wasn't eating much, and acting listless. Scans showed nothing obvious. They gave him antibiotics, which were a huge pain to administer because they tasted so bad the cat would run and hide. Stuff actually made him drool afterwards. They thought he might have eaten something that didn't agree with him.

Now, a week later, and no improvement. He's not eating or drinking at all. Vet appt. in an hour, and I'm very concerned.

Well, no idea what's wrong. He had blood taken, and peed on the doc. So urinalysis as well. Pumped him full of fluids and let me take him home. He's resting.

So sorry to hear about your little guy. My first post here - I was surprised and happy to see a cat thread where I come for turbo Miata info.

Have a bit of advice on medications and fluids in case it helps (and you're not familiar with this already).

My wife and I have been together for over 20 years. We always have had multiple cats and been through a lot medically with them, especially as some have aged and passed on.

Whenever we get meds for them, we always ask if it's available as a SubQ (under the skin) injectable. Much easier than oral. You just pull up the cat's skin behind the shoulders ("make a tent"), push it in through the skin, and inject. With modern thin needles, the cats don't even seem to notice.

If it has to be given orally, there's a compounding vet pharmacy in Texas that can make cat treats with the meds in them.

Doing SubQ fluids at home is pretty easy too. We learned how to do it for some of our cats with failing kidneys - regular fluids regimen was needed. Easier for them and you vs. going into the vet. Your vet can show you how to do it and provide the supplies or give you a prescription for them that can filled at any big box pharmacy. Two tips - Terumo needles are the best and warm the fluid bag in a pot of warm water.

Good news: Gadget appears to be on the mend. This morning, for the first time in over a week, got up to greet me. He's looking haggard, and moving like he's got the world's worst hangover, but he's on his feet.

Still not eating like normal, but at least nibbling at the canned food. I am hopeful he will be back to normal in a few days.

No clue, but I believe it was/is salmonella. He's an outdoor cat, and does eat birds, mice, etc.

Still not eating that we can tell. Tried to give him some "kitten milk" stuff the wife got, but he doesn't seem to like it. May have to take him back in for more hydration.

there have been a few recalls for EVO/Natura for potential salmonella contamination.

Related, but not the same brand. The cat treats we suspect of causing the problems are "Greenies for cats" dental treats. Other cat, who wouldn't touch them is fine.

Search for Greenies and death or illness brings up dozens of hits. I surprised they still sell the damn things. I'd like to kill the president of this company. Slowly, and very painfully.

Lola has been acting up recently, lots of hissing and striking when we go to pet her. She usually gets a bop on the nose and corporal snuggles in return for such activities. She's almost 3 and finally filling out into being a real cat so I assume its teenage angst. She's also been staying up late discussing things with the neighborhood ruffians.



At least she still finds time to be a lap kitty

Lilah has turned really strange in the last few months. She used to be really stand-offish.

Now she's ridiculously clingy. Won't stay off of laps, won't stay out of my way when i'm playing Borderlands, and follows both of us around all day.

And hides under the bed 30 minutes before we start getting ready for bed, and refuses to come out. Like she can't deal with us being in another room with the door closed for a few hours.
