Hi everyone, Has anyone got any ideas on how to get some food into my kitty? He has had FELV since 03. He was a very sick kitty and we were a breath away from having to put him to sleep. We wanted to try and give him a chance, even though our Vet and the Ophthalmologist that was treating

Well this was my second time trying, we warmed up the food and I decide to use my finger, It was so awful, we spoke our usual baby talk and I also warmed up the food a little, you would think we were trying to poison him, he reacted so badly. His stress level must be going through the roof

I've never heard of Nutrical, is it a food supplement? This sounds very good and quite easy to give, at this point I am willing to try anything. Thank you so much, I will be picking up a tube tomorrow. BLOCKQUOTE style='PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; BORDER-LEFT: #A0C6E5 2px solid;
