Couple of ideas--try Fancy Feast for Miss Kitty...  all of mine always go crazy for it==sort of like a treat! LOL  And for Oz, if vet can't find anything wrong w. his hips--maybe give him Cosequin==I sprinkle a tablet on my guys' wet food every other day and it did make a difference..

An update for all:

Miss Kitty is fitting right in with the rest of the household, both canine and feline. She is the one who the lady actually abandoned. She is young, pure black Bombay kitty. Not a spec of @white anywhere. And she is a purring machine. She does have a strange habit tho.....she totally refuses to eat any type of Cannes cat food. Scarfs down the dry, turn her nose up at anything out of can.

Oz is the old battle scarred male that came along as part of the Miss Kitty package although, technically he started it all! While both treated negative for FeLV, he was positive for FIV. His sneezing, coughing, wheezing and runny eyes are much better and he has gained a lot of weight.

I was concerned that his back end stayed scrawny - almost like a dog with hip displaysia, And he gets very upset if you touch his hind quarters. I have another vet visit scheduled for him to see if we can figure out what that is all about. He also isn't much at socializing with ANY species and spends the majority of his time in a little cat house in the master bath.

Will drop a quick note when Oz has seen the vet again.

Sandy hit us hard!  We had 3 feet of heavy wet snow which pulled down trees
as well as electric and phone lines.  I had no idea we'd get hit so hard
this far inland, as we are in the eastern mountains of WV, but we had no
electricity for two weeks and we still don't have a phone or internet
service. We have to drive out to a place that has service.

Anyway, I was not able to check into the group all this time, and I was
very worried about that cat in Ohio who was abandoned.  Now I know both
cats are fine and have found a home. 

THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES for your kindness in taking these poor babies. 
The woman who abandoned them should be ashamed of herself. I'd like to
see her chained to her front porch all winter with no food or shelter!
