Thanks for your post Wendy. That other post did come on awfully strong, and she certainly didn't do anything wrong. She did the best she could, which is all any of us can do.
As for force feeding. I feel it helps if the cat has a problem that is curable, but NOT if the cat is so sick it is going to die soon anyway. I still feel terribly guilty about a cat I had several years ago that I force fed. He struggled to get away from me but he was too weak. When he began to gag I realized this was pure torture for him and I stopped the force feeding...... He died a few days later. I will never put another cat through this!
