Progress report.....

Here I am to let you all know what is happening at the moment. Jasper came home yesterday tea time and immediately did a tour of his domain. Looked in every nook and cranny, checked all was well. Jasper looks better on himself than he did although painfully thin. he wont let us have lap cuddles yet even through they were his favourite but is staying nearby. last night he got in one of his favourite spots sat behind Barrie's head on the chair. Jasper has not hidden behind the sofa which is what he was doing. All this is brilliant but we know that we are far from through the tunnel because Jasper will just not eat anything, not a morsel between his lips and he must eat as this is the crucial test. Sue the vet did say that the 48 hours we get to have him home were so crucial and that he must eat as they had really performed a feat getting him back from the brink and would not be able to pull his damaged heart and kidneys back again. We were told that coming home was to be quality time. I just pray that our boy decides that he will eat but we will all enjoy our quality time and cram in all the love we can , while we can.... Thank you all ...... Hugs GJ Carol and Barrie xxxx

We will get pictures to show you later xx

Hope Jasper will fine....

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are delighted to see GJ went round checking everywhere when he got home and then sat behind Barrie's head. We are praying that he will eat even if it is a few bites at a time.
Would he eat a pilchard or sardine as with them being strongly flavoured and smell wise pungent it might just trigger his appetite.
Lots of love to you all
Hannah, Lucy and Sue xx xx xx

Old Kitty said...

Awww GJ!! You are making me cry because I know you know you are home - you know you are safe and you are loved and yet you are so ill. I can only imagine how your mum and dad must be feeling at this time. I can only hope and hope and hope that you find it in yourself to eat - even if it's just a little bit of food paste. Please eat lovely GJ. Please, please, please. We all love you so much. Take care

Have you tried Gerber's baby food chicken? Tuna water? If vet approves, those always work for me in desperate non-eating situations.

Oh, how good it must feel to be home. All of your favourite places to nap and sit to watch the world go by. We bet you didn't want to cuddle or eat because you were so tired and stressed. A good nap and you'll be feeling like your loving self again.
Now you know, your mum and dad will have all of your favorites on hand so just take a bite of each!! Maybe because of your illness you might want something totally unexpected. Anything, precious love, eat anything your heart desires. We are praying our very hardest for you. We love you beyond words. God bless you, darling.

possumlady said...

I remember when my dear Bill was so ill. He would turn his nose up at everything but would occasionally eat chicken baby food (just make sure it doesn't have onion or garlic powder in it).

When he would turn his nose up at baby food, I would just sit with him, not talking, and continually stroking him gently. He eventually would start eating. My vet said that a mom cat licks her babies to stimulate them to eat so my stroking his furs must have felt the same way.

Strong purrs are being sent your way...

Cassie said...

We're hoping Jasper starts eatting soon. When our cat Chuck stopped eatting due to stress, our vet gave us a special canned Hills Science Diet feline food that was made for annorexic-type cats. I think it was a/d and an actual prescription. He ate it readily when nothing else would pass his lips. Don't know if that is available where you are...it was only available through the vet by Rx. Here is a link online if you want to check it out: http://www.hillspet.com/products/product-search-results.html?brand=Prescription+Diet&species=cat&form=canned&condition=&x=20&y=13

Good luck with this.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Oh GJ...we are getting hungry just reading all your fans 'Please Eat' comments, so we are hoping that they have the same effect on you! We are glad you felt good enough to do some of those things that you did when you felt better, and that is a good sign. Did the vet send you home with any fluids for your humans to give you to hold you steady til your appetite comes back? We hope so and we hope that you are being a good patient at home for your 'nurses'. We think they probably have a product like Pedialyte for human babies in England, and you might want to lap that up as it just tastes like water but is absorbed by your tummy better than plain water. Also, if they have strained meat baby food in England, that's tasty, as well as some prescription diets your vet probably has, Hill's a/d and Royal Canin Recovery

Forty Paws said...

Oh Jasper! You must eat! Your Mum and Dad are going to be giving you tons of luf and hugs and quality time over these 48 hours. Hang in there bud, and EAT!
