Oh, I'm so sorry. She's just so young! You'll get more good advice here, but quickly, you should get some A/D from your vet. It's stinky in a way cats love, and it's a paste. You can try syringing it right from the can, or you can water it down and blend it and squirt it down the throat. It's richer than regular canned food. Or you can go and get some Gerber meat baby food, making sure there are NO ONIONS in it.
Good luck with your baby.

My son is one of the vet techs so they know us and have been with Macy since we got her at 10 wks old. She was a feral cat in the neighborhood. We even tried catnip on her favorite toy, Mr. Lion. After an exam, urinalysis and blood work, the vet came in and just stood there, too upset to talk. Macy's blood count is so bad they don't know how she's even walking, although she still jumps up on furniture but not with much energy. They said she only has a few days. I've read about assisted feeding but don't recall anyone saying what they're feeding the cat. She is still eating a very small amount but if more is going to help her, we're willing to try anything. I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions.
