Well, we went back to the vet today, Skootch only ate 1/2 a teaspoon of food last night, and today I tried smearing some food around his mouth to make him lick it off. I also tried using a food syringe Dr. Jeff gave me, and only succeeded in squirting it on the walls and ceilings (it was very unpredictable!), none in Skootch's mouth! So I took him back to the vet today for more fluids. I even tried tempting him with tuna juice, which is the cats' absolute favorite treat. He only had about 3 licks of tuna juice so far. Lucy, on the other hand, was very happy to clean up the tuna juice in Skootch's bowl. Hmph. I'm stumped.


  1. Poor Skootch! We is worried! Not eating is not a good thing. Wes is all purraying for Skootch!
    Neliie and Kozmo

  2. Vet is pretty sure there's no blockage. I guess if this persists we'll have to get an x-ray. Oddly, Skootch doesn't seem to mind riding in the car, as long as he's in the old-fashioned carrier. Also, not having Lucy singing opera next to him must be more restful.

  3. Purrs more for Skootch !!!
    Eat up !!! Little friend

  4. Hmmmm! It's a bit of a conundrum?? I hope all is sorted soon!
