    Sister, I'm so sorry. I know you're probably not thrilled with the vet right now, but please call them back with an update to see what they say. Maybe it takes a little while after the treatment. Maybe a little water from a dropper would help keep her hydrated.
    love and hugs

    If she's old, maybe her metabolism is slowing down and she doesn't need to eat as much.

    I wish I could help but all I can suggest is to try meat, pedialyte, or baby food, and keeping an eye on her. If she doesn't eat/drink for another day or two, the vet is recommended. I hope you don't have to, but sometimes force-feeding is a possibility.

    I'm so sorry to hear something is wrong with Princess. What is going on? What did the vet say? Are you waiting for feedback from tests? Big hugs to you and your Princess. Keep us updated. I want to be able to support you somehow. :) I'm here.

    Sister if you want to save that cat , go to Walmart and get Pedalyte sp? and a plastic eyedropper and force feed that cat the fluid. If the cat gets dehydrated kidneys will go and arrest. The Pedalyte is for children or infants which has a round of vomiting or diarrhea .and chemistry is messed up because of mineral loss. It like Ringer's solution which the Vet uses to hydrate animals in his office but also works when taken orally. I have saved a couple of cats doing that.

    Get a towel and wrap her to bind those front and rear paws so you don't get scratched up. Cradle her and use the eyedropper to the side of the mouth as the cat has an opening in the teeth where it can be slipped in and give a cc of the fluid. You need about 7 cc every hour.

    It's so hard to have a problem like this with a cat or any pet. They can tell us so much but when they get ill all we know is that something is wrong. I hope she gets better soon.

    I'm so sorry. Do call the vet, and try to at least get her hydrated. Maybe she simply needs the sleep?

    I'm really sorry to hear that Princess is still not eating or drinking. I've never considered the veterinary visits and blood-work to find out what might be wrong a waste of time and money, even when my animal friends couldn't be 'fixed' by what I learned by it.

    Perhaps Princess is just weary today. When my cat Katie started not eating or drinking much, I was advised to try baby food, and I tried that as well as many other tempting foods. Flavored cat milk sometimes got her to drink.

    I'm so sorry Sister. It's so very hard when something we love is hurting. We have a rat terrior that we've had for 14 years and his hearing and eye sight is going. He still wants to do what he's always done but he just can't keep up with the cats that run up and down our fence. My heart aches for him. So praise be to God! I'm praying for you!

    Not eating is serious. A couple of days without food or water is the most you should go before returning to the vet; all the sleeping is the animal's way of conserving energy. I would suspect an internal injury, infection, or possible tumor. I wish you well.

    It might possibly be lyme most of the time that can be fixed simply by pills, most likely they did not check for that when you went to the vet. But then again it could be something like a tumor, did they find any lumps on her at all?

    Mystifying. Keep watch for her gums turn white or if she gets really dehydrated. Call your vet if that happens. Does your clinic have more than one Vet? Might be time for another opinion. Best thoughts to you both.
