Malcolm eats out
I could use some prayers/good thoughts for one of my fur-babies, Malcolm. He started getting sick on Monday, running a fever, lethargic, and not wanting to eat much. Antibiotics have taken care of the fever, but it is now Thursday afternoon and he hasn't eaten a thing since Tuesday morning. He won't even lick up tuna juice. This can be very dangerous in cats, especially overweight cats, and can lead to liver failure.

He's been to the vet twice, and is back again. He is getting a feeding tube put in today and some x-rays to see if there is anything else going on. He's 7, which is getting up there for a cat, but he's been pretty heathy up until now. I've gone through these kind of extended illness, big medical intervention stuff before with cats, but it was usually end-of-life care for 19-20 year olds. He can be a major pain in the butt, but he's way too young to lose him now!
