hopeful..... I crushed up the appetite stimulator pill and coaxed Skootch into eating 4 or 5 licks - he gasped and drooled and almost yakked, but didn't. Then he was all lovey-dovey. And LO, ran to his food dish (which he never does) and gulped down the teaspoonful that was in there. He wanted more - I gave him the tiniest bit (Dr. Jeff said not to give him too much at one time). When I didn't give him any more, he ran to Lucy's dish and ate HER leftovers. An hour late I gave him another 1/2 teaspoon and he gulped that down. He also started mouse patrol and detected rodent visitor dropping in our kitchen trash. I have NEVER seen Skootch so enthusiastic about food! I can't believe that pill worked so fast (about 20 minutes). I hope tomorrow he continues to eat.
Cautiously optimistic......... paws crossed. :)
