Thank you my friends.....

Hello everyone.Firstly today I want to say thank you for all the support and tips on what to give mt to eat. Mum and dad are grateful for all this. To give me my medication I have to eat something so its not on an empty stomach as it would upset me. Last night I ate a small amount and a little cheese so got the first dose. Today I have eaten nothing at all. Dad has sat with food on his fingers, has chopped favourites really small and tried everything possible. I have not even smelled the food. I am very lethargic and didn't even want to go in my yard with dad. I cant tell you how worried mum and dad are. Although it doesn't show on pictures so much because of my fluff I am very thin with no fat at all. Mum and dad said if only we knew what was the problem we could fight it. One thing we are going to try after several friends suggested it is baby food.

I came out for a while and sat on dad as he worked on his laptop, but only for a short while. I then went and sat on mum's legs but again for a short while. I have spent most of the day sleeping which maybe is a good thing.


Thank you everyone and please keep those purrs coming as I am sure they will help.. Hugs GJ xx

Oh, GJ...this makes our mom's heart hurt...We all really want you to be well, to have a real diagnosis you can treat. Has the vet suggested an appetite stimulant to kick-start your eating?

All our Light and Love, continued purrs to you all.

(((Hugs))) and *kitty kisses*

Oh, GJ, we are worried about you. Please try to eat something so you can get your medicine in you. Have you tried having your food warmed just a bit? Maybe even warm the baby food, but maybe just try the meats without the veggies. We all have our paws crossed for you, pal.

When my cat who was diabetic was unwell I was told to give her small amounts of chicken or scrambled egg.
Perhaps GP ISN'T DIABETIC but it's worth a try,

Give him a hug from me,

GJ, we are sorry to hear you are not eating. Please try really hard so you can have your medication without it making you feel worse.

Ohh, GJ, we did not know you were poorly. This is furry worrying. I remember how worrying it was when Fat Eric went off his food. Hope you get your appetite back soon.

Sagira said...

GJ, I don't mean to make your mom worry but have them checked your liver? This happened to my kitty brother Smokey several years ago he was fine and then just all of a sudden stopped eating. He had some problems with his liver. We were able to get him to eat some grilled chicken and stuff but he ended up having to have a tube put in his tummy so we could feed him through that. I sure do hope that you just have a small bug or something and nothing more serious. Our vet also suggested baby food because it is nice and smelly. I hope you eat soon GJ. Our thoughts are with your mom and dad I know they must be awful worried about you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, GJ, you've got to eat. It's hard, though, when you don't feel tempted by any food. We hope you get better soon. Purrs and tail wags.

BeadedTail said...

Oh GJ, we're so worried about you too. We hope you feel like eating again soon so you can take your medicine. We love you and are sending lots of purrayers your way!

Sweet Praline said...

GJ - this is just getting to be a bad thing on the CB lately. I know your mom and dad are really worried about you, because my mom is doing the same about me and we know what is wrong with me. Has the vet done a complete blood workup yet.

My purrs are with you and mom is praying for your mom! Please start eating!

Cat said...

Oh GJ we are worried too! Definitely try baby food, it should help you gain a a little weight. We are purring for you GJ!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We ere so saddened to read your post, GJ. We are all purring and purring for you. We wish they could figure out what the problem was so they could do something about it. Maybe Eric and Flynn have a point in that it might be better to give you medication by injection, if that is a possibility?

Sending Purrs, Gentle Woofs and Big Hugs,

Max the Quilt Cat said...

GJ: I'm purring for you, pal. I want you to eat the food and take the medicine. You are such a good friend... I'm sending you all my happy and strong thoughts.

Katnip Lounge said...

GJ, we are very worried about you...please eat a little something...could your vet give you an appetite stimulant?

Huge purrs to you! The Baby is a little perkier today, still waiting to hear from the vet.

jen said...

actually, baby food would work. i know my in-laws' cats loved daniel's meat baby food (while daniel wouldn't touch it).

Old Kitty said...

Sweet GJ!! There is something very wrong if you are not eating or showing any interest in food. Me and Charlie just hope and pray that the meds are going to help eventually but you must eat. Resting is good too. We are so so worried about you - gorgeous GJ!!! Please please please get better. We hope your vets will know what's wrong with you. Please take care. Hugs and lots and lots and lots of love, xx

Laila and Minchie said...

Our mum use to feed two of our sisters-who-came-before-us baby food and they loved it. Only Mum had to "force" feed them. She sucked up some baby food into a dropper and slowly fed it to them while she cradled them like a baby. Perhaps this would work for you GJ? It's also a good way to give water too. We are worried too so please try to get your appetite back, okay? (((HUGS)))

The Island Cats said...

Oh GJ! We hope you start eating something. Baby food is really yummy...we hope that works for you!! We continue to purr very hard for you!!

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Marg said...

Oh GJ, this makes us so sad. Baby food might work or something that stinks, like some kind of fish. Please start eating. Maybe you have a hair ball or something.
Sometimes the really cheap canned food smells good and so is more attractive. We sure hope you start eating really soon.
So now we are sending tons and tons of purrs and the donkeys sure have their hooves crossed. Mom has all her toes and fingers crossed too that something will work and make you feel better. Take care. Hugs to Mom and Dad

Kari said...

This can't be happening, sweet Ginger Jasper. We continue to pray very hard that you begin to eat and respond to your medicine. It must be so horrible for you to feel so sick. Since your case is baffling you regular vet, is there a specialist you can see before you get any more sick? It will be easier on you and your parents if you are able to be diagnosed and the proper treatments started. Is there any way that you could have cntractedFIV? Our brother had sx of lethargy, weight loss, anorexia. He also had numerous oral lesions. He had been tested for FIV in the shelter and also upon adoption by mum. When he fell ill (and also had labs that didn't look bad ) the vet couldn't figure out what was wrong. Mum read about sx of FIV on the net and begged the vet to retest him. The vet couldn't believe it when he came up FIV+. On the proper mess, he lead a long life. We don't know if you have ever been bitten by an infected cat but it may be something to think of if all else fails. We couldn't love you more if you were our own. God bless you.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

dearest jasper...I am purrring my very best for you sweet boy. I feel helpless so far from you and wish I could just snuggle up with you...warm sleepy time is good when you don't feel well...we love you...Miss Peach

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh GJ we are so behind and are so so sad to read how sick you have been. We are sending you tons of purrs and prayers. We wish we had good suggestions - have you tried any baby food - mom hasn't checked anyone elses ideas but she has been known to try that when one of us won't eat. We think it does help a bit to get us eating (it is super stinky so it is tough to resist). We hope that medication works for you - we know that if you stop eating sometimes it is hard to get back into eating again so you have to take it kind of slow, and if your gums are irritated that makes it hard. Kirzon has that and he has stopped eating from it before and they have given him antibiotics to help them and he would start to eat again - maybe that is something your vet could try - and maybe if you could get it compounded into an ear gel that would help too because then it doesn't upset your stomach and you don't need to take it with food (and then you can feel better and actually want to eat again). Oh GJ we are purring and praying so hard for you to want to start eating again!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

GJ, your humans must be frantic! I know mine would be. I am sending you loads of purrs, and I really wish the vet could figure out what the matter is!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

We are sending the strongest White Dog healing energy to you GJ so that you regain your appetite and that the vet discovers (and fixes) whatever is wrong. We also send positive hopeful woos to comfort mum and dad and to remind them that the Power of the Paw is lovingly wrapped around you all. Be well.

The Lee County Clowder said...

Sometimes we will eat better if you mix a little warm water into the food. Not sure if it smells more or is easier to eat (or maybe both), but it might be worth a try.

If there is a compounding pharmacy around, maybe you could get the medication prepared so you could schmear it on GJ's ears, and get it absorbed that way.

Sending purrrrrss and purrrrayers to GJ and the whole family.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Maybe I need to send Ben ovFUR to help woo eat -

More purrs coming your way. Mom is very sad that you are nor up to par!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

one time when my Angel Bobo wouldn't eat the vet suggested that we give him tuna WATER...not the tuna but the tuna WATER....I think it has nutrients that he said were better than not eating at all.
The baby food that others suggested IS a good idea.
I pray that they are able to find out what the problem is so that you may be helped xoxo

Mr Puddy said...

GJ, Poor thing !
I am still sending purrs for you to eat..eat..and eat.

And I hope baby food is work well for you my dear.

HUG and Kisses

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Sweet boy,
Have they checked you for kidney failure?? I don't wish that on anyone but your symptoms are the same as Tigers and Amanda's when it turned out, that is what they had.
I surely hope not but I hope they have checked.....
xx, Bambi & Fern

Derby, Ducky said...

Continuing healing purrs to you GJ, we are worried too.

Cheri said...

We have been keeping up with your posts but our puter doesn't load right so we couldn't comment. We have been thinking of you and hoping you are doign better. Would your mom get a second opinion from another vet - perhaps someone new might see something your vet missed. Might be worth trying. Sending lots of purrs.,

Forty Paws said...

Oh my goodness! You must eat right away! What about tuna joose? What about rotisserie chicken? What about real live dead shrimp? Yes, baby food will be good. Maybe your Mom and Dad can squirt some of it into your mouth with a syringe. Get that from the v-e-t. We have fed cats that way before. Oh yes indeed.

Hang in there. We are sending tons of purrs and purrayers and hugs.

The Monkeys said...

Oh GJ! We hope the baby food works to help your appetite back! Mommy had a cat with lipidosis because she stopped eating from stress and it seemed if Mommy forced a bit of food in her mouth, she'd get hungry after she tasted it and gobble the rest up on her own. We don't know if that would help, but we just want you to eat, GJ! Your vet will know best though. Big purrs for you.

Hannah and Lucy said...

GJ - we hope you have eaten a little today but if not has your mum tried cooking a chicken breast and giving it to you while it is still warm from the oven - it works for H & L if they are being picky.
We hope you will be a good mancat GJ and help your mum and dad make you well again.
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Princess Jasmine said...

Oh GJ, we are purring our very hardest for you. With my cone on it acts like a loudhaler so hopefully that will help you even more. We sent lots of love to your mummy and daddy too, my mummy understands totally how worried they must be about you xxxx

Ludo van Doggy said...

oh GJ! So sorry I missed you being ill. I hope you get better soon and start eating! Maybe the tablets would help even without the food?
I remember how awful we felt not having a diagnosis for Pepe, so I hope you get one soon! I will read back to see your other symptoms. You don't have one of your pupils dilated do you?

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Sweet, sweet, sweet GJ, please eat, please, please, please!!!!!!!!! We are purraying mightily for you.

Love to you and your mum and dad.

Cory said...

GJ we are very worried about you and constantly purr in your honor.

Admiral Hestorb said...

Precious baby...what does the vet say now? Has he investigated what I have, idiopathic hypercalcimia? That makes you not want to eat.
