Marlene - My Tigger had an active leukemia when I began Winstrol, based on his 
bloodwork..... and he also was not eating. I gave him an appetite stimulant 
called Mirtazapine, only a half of a 7.5 mg tablet, every 3rd day, and that 
boosted his appetite. I also fed him the canned cat food that they sell for 
after surgeries - it is very calorie dense but I don't remember the name of it. 
Sometimes I had to clip a towel around him and syringe feed him a little. I did 
not want to do that because he didn't like having me do that, but I made up my 
mind that if was going to make it, he had to have some food in him. I believe 
Amani knows the name of another good appetite stimulant. When he would not 
drink any water, I gave him clam juice (we called it his kitty cocktail)- he 
loved it. It is just shameful that Winstrol is not legal for this use - they 
hold a grudge against it because of the misuse of it by a few athletes. So our 
kitties have to suffer without the one thing that can help them. It is also 
important to combine it with the Prednisolone and the Doxycyclene because the 
Doxy has some property whereby it prevents the virus from replicating. Best of 
luck with his treatment!!

Don't apologize for questions, that is one way we learn.  I have had no 
problems, but am sure Amani and others do have answers for you
