Getting Blue to Eat
- I had this problem when my Katchina had cancer and it was extremely
difficult to find foods she would eat. One thing she would eat was
very small strips of raw beef liver...yes, raw. And leave some blood
on the dish for Blue to lick up. Organic liver if possible. I think
there was something about the slippery texture that made it easy for
her to eat. This probably isn't the greatest for the CRF, so I
wouldn't feed this constantly, but it's worth a shot to see if Blue
If Blue won't eat you will probably have to force feed. Something
like A/D via syringe. I haven't checked back on your posts to see if
you've already tried this. There is also something called NutriCal in
a tube that can be used. You squeeze it out onto your finger and
smear it into the kitty's mouth. I think PETCO or Pet Supplies Plus
carries this and some vets have it, too. Dr. Smith and Foster online
have several products designed for force feeding or hand feeding.
I'm sending energy to you and Blue...
