    Just back from the vets with kitty, and I feel bloody awful :( She has lost a Kilo from her normal weight and is now 2.56kg. :crying: She is such a fluffy little thing I never noticed :( She isn't weight baring well at all today and I can't get anything into her.

    She had 125ml IV fluids, bloods, metacalm, antibiotics, and antiametics. They teated her Kidneys, (vets first thought) and thankfully they are ok, not brill but it isnt those causing the problem.

    She looks soo poorly :cryin: I have managed to syringe 5 ml of goats milk and blended prawns. Have to try every hour. I can't get cover for work in the morning either, nor can the OH. We back into the vet tomorrow @ 11.30. Bless them, they are staying open for us. She may be kept in tomorrow, but they thought she is best off at home if poss.

    Please keep everything crossed :crying:

    Thanks guys, I have managed to syringe feed her 20mls of prawn milkshake. She is looking a ittle brighter, but we will see. If I can get her through the night, i'll feel a little better.

    How on earth did I miss her losing a whole KILO though :(

    She is cured up in the wardrobe at the mo, so leaving her in peace. Have whacked the heating up too as she wont let me wrap her up, and Harvey's coat swamped her :(

    S&H, good work getting some of the prawn milkshake in her. Did the vet offer you some Hills A/D at all? Highly calorific and highly palatable, which can also be thinned down for more easy syringing.

    Fingers and toes continue to be firmly crossed by me and everyone else on here no doubt.

    No they didn't, but if we make tomorrows 11.30 am appointment then I will ask for some. I think the priority was to see if we can get her through the night. I have some ham... ignored, tuna....ignored. I got some toplife and whiskers milk, so may do the next feed as top life.

    She is only 6 bless her :(

    Do they have any idea as to what might be wrong with her? Will they be having the blood works etc back tomorrow? Or have you had them back already?

    Prawn milkshake it is! Just whatever presses her buttons.

    They tested what they could in the vets, the rest has been sent to the lab, not sure when we are expecting the resuts. No ideas when the kidney resuts came back okayish
