Thank you

Thank you, everyone, for all your comments. You made me cry just now, unmoderating them.

Zoe still won't eat, although she clearly has an appetite, and wants to play. She just doesn't approve of the slightly moistened dry food she's allowed right now. She wants plain dry food, and the vet say she's not allowed it for a week. I foresee force-feeding in her future again. The good thing though is that she has not thrown up her force-fed food from last night, which is a minor miracle.

I love you all, and so does Zoe. =) (I got fifteen hours of sleep last night; clearly needed it.)

My prayers go out to you and Zoe! Good luck getting her to keep the food down.

Ms. Tomlin, I am not taking part in queryfail. I would appreciate you not making assumptions.

Jeanne Tomlin said...

I apologize. I was going by the post I read at theswivet.blogspot.com which seemed to imply that you were by mentioning your name:

"Agent Jenny Rae Rappaport and I have been doing this by ourselves about once a week and it's seems to be something that writers find helpful, so bringing it into #Queryday will open it up. . ."

I assumed that meant you were taking part. Again, I apologize.

I did want to post that I hope Zoe is doing better. Having a sickly kitty myelf, I understand.

I deleted my comment and again, Ms. Rappaport, I'm sorry for reading something into that comment that wasn't the case. I was disappointed because I do respect you enough to think you're careful in how you handle relations to potential clients.

Good signs - playing and wanting to eat. I'm sure she'll be fine in no time:-D

I was just finishing up a longish post when firefox quit on me.

I was describing how I lost a cat to liver failure, which had symptoms like not eating and vomiting a lot. My point was, never apologize for taking care of your cat. Sometimes there are things a little more important than work.

I wish you and Zoe the best.

Right now, make sure you only give her bottled water because she can't handle the additives in tap water.

After Zoe feels better, you really need to find a good holistic vet who can help you with a good diet plan. It's more than worth the extra trouble and expense.

My black Abyssinian is healthy, thank God, but my Golden Retriever had stomach problems for most of her adult life.

I gave us three extra years together by going totally organic with carefully prepared homemade, organic meals. She ate better than I did.

glad you got some sleep. Hugs.

Prayers go to you and Zoe! I've got seven cats myself and it can be hard when one of them is sick, especially if you can't do much to make them feel better.

Sabrina said...

Yay for sleep. It sounds good that Zoe has an appetite and wants to play. I hope she gets better soon, though, and you both get plenty of rest.

A friend who is wise in all things kitty suggests you try organic pureed chicken baby food mixed with bottled water to trickle down your kitty's throat to build her up.

Now is a good time to wean her away from whatever dry food you are using. Most cats become addicted to grocery store brands with their corn, soy, and preservatives.

Find a brand that uses organic meat as the first ingredient, and avoid Science Diet which is a bad joke.

I'm thinking good thoughts Zoe's way.

She's on dry Feline Id, and can't be taken off of it. It's made by Hill's, but its wonderful benefit is that it is BLAND. And bland is what she needs, not organic, unfortunately.

Her current wet food is the wet version of Feline Id. Mmm, pork liver, pureed. (Smells delightful.)

The vet says she can't handle the shock of pure protein into her system.

I'm glad she's started to behave like a normal cat and is back to complaining about the service.

Kaitlin said...

I hope your cat gets better. Pets are family, and family comes first. I'm glad she's feeling playful and getting her appetite back, it must be such a relief for you.

A little late, but still keeping Zoe in my thoughts - hopefully, by now, she's gotten over her grudge at having to have moist food.
