.... and she ends her strike.

Yesterday I talked other vet who told me that sometimes kitties are so mortified and overwhelmed by wearing the ruff collar on top of being stuffed with all kinds of medicines that they just retreat. She also gave me some good advice on ways to tempt her to eat.

Well, we removed the collar, and within the hour she was diving onto a bowl of fresh tuna juices with gusto as well as pounding down a plate of finely minced boiled chicken. She even tasted her new rabbit and peas dinner and lapped up a teaspoon of goat yogurt with live cultures.

I gave her a long snuggle until she purred. then we stuffed her with more medicine and she retreated back under the bed to sulk. I did catch her playing with a mouse though-- a very encouraging sign.

Whew is about all I can say right now.
