About Me: Female, 60, housatonic, MA, member since Mar 2013
I have rescued and cared for stray cats in fla. and ma. 2 of my cats are brothers that i have bottle fed as 2 week old kittens they are now 15yrs. One of them Cha Cha has been very sick off and on for a year. the vet cannot tell what it is exactly. at this point he had
[More] an eye problem where his head was very swollen. we have been trying neo-poly-dex then neo-poly-bac, tear eye drops, homologus eye drops, antibiotics, hydration in the skin with added b vitamins, and buprenex for pain. I am trying to get him back up but he wont even eat now and turns his nose up at juice from tuna out of the can. I saw the article about force feeding and will ask the vet about it, it kind of sounds like that could help.
