That is wonderful Kerry! I hope you shared the results with the lab people
and the vet...and I wonder what their reaction was...could save lots of
kitties in the future. Thanks for sharing with us!

after a good morning yesterday, now Whimsy is refusing to eat again. Tuna,
sardines, treats, nothing - have to try KFC today. He is having bursts of
playing alot, wants to cuddle, then gets pissed off and kicks litter out of his
box, paces around crying and begging to go outside. He is
I'm probably the only person in the world who has never been to one, lol, do I
get Grilled? or original? I always stayed away from the rotisserie ones in the
grocery store since i figured they had onion/garlic marinade.
Don't let him get to you - no matter how much he objects. Pretty soon,
he'll be more than happy to be safe inside! Have you tried heating up the
food or adding some very hot water to it? Does he have some toys, catnip to
keep him busy? BTW, if you get Rescue Remedy, you don't necessarily have

Yes, tried heating the food, too, added his fave treats; 4 flavors of tiki,
regular tuna, regular sardines, kibble, steak from Christmas, - he's got
several interactive toys that he loves, cat trees, scratching pads/posts, sunny
windows, catnip toys, loose catnip, filtered water,
I know I don't post very often but like to say that I use all of the things I listed below.
Original KFC chicken
Rescue Remedy in the water
I use and do all of this when kitties are not feeling good, not eating or just in a bad mood if they can't get their own way. My rescue
Shannon, I don't remember all the details about Whimsy, but it sounds
like he may need Prozac rather than Cypro. Cypro is an antibiotic,
and if he doesn't have an infection, but is merely upset and agitated
I wondered why Cypro was suggested??

Lorrie, I think she meant Cyproheptadine, an antihistamine. Some have had
success using it as an appetite stimulant. I worry about forcing a cat to eat
by using this kind of appetite stimulant unless you are sure the cat is not
nauseated. Forcing a nauseated cat to eat ill only cause food
Cypro is also used to enchance their appetite.
Cypro has many uses.

Hi Tracey..yes, agree, I asked the rescue group organizer if she was going to
speak to lab and vet. I'll be following up with her.

hi Sharyl, Lorrie, and Terrie,
Yes, I meant Cyproheptadine as an appetite stimulent. I did pick it up, but
have not given to him yet. I have it as a last resort. He might not be
pillable. I would probably try some pepcid first (to the point about whether he
could be nauseated). He turned
I let my vet know about this story, too!!

Actually, that's a great idea. Whenever I have ferals, I play radio with
talk shows so that they get used to human voices. But this little guy seems
beyond that stage. After that, classical music is very soothing to cats.
Have you tried the catnip spray?? Have you tried the cheapest tuna or
maybe raw hamburger (room temp)? Hot water on top of the hamburger
brings out the juices and has helped some ferals eat and/or drink
the juices. Re tuna: The nice solid white doesn't work. Even my
healthy guys want
This might sound silly, but I sing to my cats. Like when I'm taming and
socializing feral kittens... It seems to work and I have fun :-)
When I spend time (in the summer) at feral colonies I feed, I put out smelly/
yummy tuna or mackerel and sing.
I have no real proof that it works, but the
thanks, Katy! Whimsy loves singing too! he's got his own songs about him, and
a special fondness for Annie's Song by John Denver. I may try 'Food, Glorious
Food' from Oliver next

When I use Cypro I use pill pockets if I can't get them to take it by inserting it with my fingers.

Most will take it this way or you can mixed it in a little food and put it in his mouth.

I generally crush a pill (not necessarily this one) and mix with a tiny bit of
water and syringe it – total of ½ cc.
Syringing is easier than pilling at my house.
