Kali is still not eating. I tried giving her heated chicken baby food, heated chicken liver (suggested on a website). I gave her the antibiotic, but I don't think she has an infection. I also gave her  some of the Lickable Super Charger that Moki's mom recommended. It's similar to the paste they make to get rid of hairballs. It has calories and nutritional supplements in it. It's the only thing she would eat, yet she started gagging after she first ate it.  After forcing the antibiotic down her, I didn't have the heart to force food down her too. As a Tortie, she's always prized her dignity.  She still is drinking water on her own. But she looked me in the eye and I feel as if she asked me to let her go. 

I still have to go to work today and I don't want to spend the day tearing up in front of my first graders like I did last week so I'm not making any decisions about when I'll take her in exactly. School is over next Tues. Although I welcome a bit of time off before I'll work again during summer school, there is so much required of me right now. I feel as if I can't concentrate on doing as much for Kali as I'd like to. 

I bought so many foods yesterday that I still want to see if she'll eat. Chicken has always been her number one love, but I need to try the other things too.

Oh Kali, that's so hard. Always listen to your heart on this. We've never known a pet owner to be wrong (and we worked as a vet receptionist for a lot of years)

Oh Kali, we wish you would eat - though we understand if you don't want to. Spend some lovely time with your Mom and let her know when you are ready.

We are purring for you.

Only you and your Mom can make that decision and she will know when it's time. Moms have a way of knowing. Enjoy your time with each other.

{{{HUGS}}} to you both!

Kali, We hope something will tempt you to eat. But sometimes we just don't want to. Humans always want to feed us when we don't want anything, but we do need nourishment.

We send purrs and tail wags to you and your mom.
