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.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Assisted Feeding

My Macy is only 10 1/2 mos. and I took her to the vet yesterday because
she had become lethargic and wasn't playing. 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.
