My poor little kitten (13 years old, pictured in the icon) is really unwell at the moment. She's not been eating for a couple of days, and is not moving very much. When we went to the vet yesterday, she'd lost a lot of weight, and after giving her an antibiotic shot, the vet told us to come back at 5:00pm today (Sunday), so he's obviously worried, too. (He didn't keep her at the clinic, because she hates other people and other cats. She spent the entire time on his table growling.)

We started treating her for arthritis towards the end of last year, because she had been licking the fur off her leg-joints, where there was no visible skin problem, and tests for cancer came back negative. I'm wondering if we should test her again.

She did perk up a bit this morning - went and greeted Zcc when he got up, like she usually does, but without the usual purrs. She keeps sitting in cool spots, when the temperature has plummeted, so I don't know quite what to do. I've been spoon-feeding her bits of special squishy food which the vet prescribed, but she's eaten barely a desert-spoon-ful over the course of 24 hours.

Very worried about my poor little kitty.

Only because I have a diabetic cat, I ask, did the vet check her blood sugar? When my cat was undiagnosed, she lost weight, stopped grooming much and mostly sat and watched things.
