So...I'm starting to feel like some kinda superhero or something. Nikki was messaging me all day, he's really upset about how the cat is doing, she's hasn't been eating and getting skinnier and skinnier. So I told him stop at the pet store and get kitten canned food. Which he couldn't find, so we settled on Iams. The reason I was trying to find kitten specific food is that it has a much higher fat content to it, and I suspicion is very tasty. Yuriko did everything she good to scarf Logan's kitten kibble when he was tiny, and did she ever get fat on it until we got good at locking her in the bathroom while the poor kitten ate. She was hard to catch back then. I was kind of wondering all day if it was time to call the vet again, but I didn't want to say anything to Nikki in case my high-fat plan possibly worked.
And as of right now, it's going well. The cat is eating. I repeat, the cat is eating. She can't manage a whole can at once, so I suggested we offer her food three times a day to make sure she's getting plenty and fatten her back up to a normal cat weight again. It's the best I can do for her right now, I wish I had more. I don't want my cat to leave me. I really really don't. I know nothing is eternal, not even mountains, but I'm just not ready and need more time. So does Nikki. I'll spoon feed her if I have to. Of course, she's a lazy cat, she may have figured out this is the way to get everything she wants, including spoon feeding. Hard to tell, she's a smart one.
Bring on the next problem, I'll solve that one too.
