Kali, one of my kitties, is a very sick girl. I took her to the vet's last night and they diagnosed her with a severe case of colitis and a UTI. She has dermatitis on her backside due to having the runs. She has always had weird digestive problems, but this week was strikingly worse.

So now she has to wear a ruff collar (the keep her from making her backside worse, and I am applying a cream twice daily. And she is being dosed with antibiotics and a strong anti-diarrheal medicine. I think it is working, but she is visibly miserable and forlorn, and I am worried that she is not eating. It's hard to tell since her sister Parvati can eat like a trucker. At least she slept next to me last night and seemed to enjoy having an extended snuggle.

So folks who have dealt with sick kitties, I need your advice: does medication make kitties anorexic? What should I do about this? I have a follow-up scheduled in two weeks (after she is finished with the antibiotics) but I am anxious about the loss of appetite.

Thoughts?
