We rescued a kitten on New Year's Eve. She was about 3 months old at the
time, so she is now just over a year old. She tested FeLV positive and has
been quite well until 2 months ago. She had terrible diarreah and was very
lethargic.( In previous months she was so active and playful and naughty
that her nickname was Troublemaker.
The vet said that she had lymphoma in her intestines and the glands would
eventually cut them off. She was given antibiotics and anti inflammatories
and there was some improvement for a while. Then we had to take her back
for more medication.

She has deteriorated significantly in the last 2 weeks. Her hears are
floppy, she's gradually stopped eating - we've been trying to tempt her
with everything we can think of. She still purrs and paws, is able to climb
the stairs and get on the bed, but has stopped playing. Her tummy is very
plump - but we believe that this is the glands growing bigger.

Her quality of life at this point is such that we don't believe it is time,
but we want to get her eating. Is there anything we can offer her that has
been found to be successful?
