I'm so sorry to hear about Autumn's troubles. It's so heart-breaking to see them go through this, and it just doesn't seem fair. How old is little Autumn? I don't know anything about vets and Interferon, but I do know that you are a wonderful person for helping this little soul. I hope she improves, and I hope that you find joy in her small triumphs. Stay strong for Autumn, and believe that she'll do well. She'll pick up on your confidence and your vibes, and of course she already knows how much you love her. Give her a snuggle and a smooch for me.

We just came back from our second vet visit in two and a half weeks. The first time Autumn was slightly lethargic with fever and swollen glands so they put her on Amoxicillan. She responded quickly and perked right up. However, this week she lapsed into sleeping all the time and retreating into dark places away from people. Friday she wasn't playing but she was still eating - though not as much. Saturday we bought her some Innova Evo soft food which she gobbled down. Yesterday scared me though. She quit eating except for treats and her eyes looked glassy. She was also vomiting yellow bile. I worried about her hydration so I used her antibiotic syringe to make her take water. That seemed to help. Today she wouldn't even eat her treats. We took her in this morning and the vet gave her Nutri-Cal - she ate it. He also recommended Pedialyte (unflavored). He was very concerned for her having these kind of symptoms so young. I asked him about Interferon-A. This is the second vet we've talked to that doesn't treat with it. I dosed her with the antibiotic as soon as I got her home and I also gave her more Nutri-cal. She slept again for about an hour and a half then she got up to come see me and threw up again. This time I gave her the Pedialyte and more Nutri-cal. She looks better and she did a little exploring. She didn't retreat to the other room or her carrier but stayed on the couch. They gave us some prescription food for sick kitties and I wonder if I should start her on it right away or let her tummy settle a bit first? Emotionally this has been hard. I kept crying every time I thought about life without her. She brought so much joy to our lives and we love her dearly. Today I'm doing better because I can actually be Pro-active with the Pedialyte, NutriCal and antibiotics. I would give anything to have her playing with her toys again. How do you find a vet who treats with Interferon? ~ Susan A.
