Yesterday morning Au refused: roast chicken, chicken breast roll, scientific healthy biscuits, ordinary biscuits, the expensive healthy cat food, his favourite cat food, and salmon crunchy treats. I was in despair. At lunchtime he was interested in food but something seemed to stop him eating. I gave him a few shreds of chicken and made him swallow it, just to make sure there was something in his tummy.
At 430PM his male survunt came home. Au trotted upstairs and meowed for biscuits. He then sat down and ate a whole bowlful of his regular crunchies. An hour later he demanded cat food. He refused the healthy stuff and his regular packet and demanded to try the free sample that came with Boris' biscuits. Au at half the pack. An hour after that he demanded more biscuits.
I hope I'm not premature in saying this but I think our kitty is back on his paws. He ate biscuits and fish this morning, then went back to bed for a snooze. He's been in the hall cupboard all week, so being out in the open is another good sign.
Here's an old pic of him; I didn't want to disturb our convalescent kitty with the flashy monster.
Thanks for all the advice and support. Really, it's great to have it - especially when so many people around me tell me it's silly to have sleepless nights "because it's only a cat and not even a pedigree." If it weren't for you, and the cat girls, I might have committed murder by now.
And thank goodness Momo is eating again, and Annie is pooping, but KC still seems shaky. All the news is at the Cat Blogosphere, so do pop round and catch up on the mews.
