ROSIE's RECOVERY

Rosie is now home since Wednesday afternoon. She has found her old places and behaves nearly normal she only is a little slow in her movements and avoids to jump high.

But she doesn't eat ! and this is what worries me the most. I still have to give her this special food with my finger and also use the syringe to force her to drink.

What comforts me a bit is that she is grooming herself and usually a sick cat doesn't do that, she even washed her darling Arthur.




I had to go to my private litterbox at 3 am and when I got up I saw her taking care of Arthur, it was so sweet that I quickly took these pictures.




She doesn't look like a sick cat ! Her fur is shiny and when she looks at me she has her usual big round eyes. What do you mean ?

Tonight I will cook chicken liver for her. Piccola my very first cat lived for 20 years with only eating chicken liver mixed with bread or a potatoe. 45 years ago there was no can food and no dry food either. Cats ate the left overs from humans. When cans were introduced, I bought one just for a try, but Piccola prefered her chicken liver and didn't touch it.
Now I will see with Rosie.

Oh sweet Gattina, thanks for update news, we can not stop thinking about Rosie.We are sending love and purrs to you and her.
I was think about "depression"or something like that, and I think she will be fine soon, with the lovely Arthur by her side.The pictures are so sweet.
And chicken is a great idea! :)
Good lucky!
all our prayers for Rosie,

Thanks for the Rosie update - I hope that the chicken livers encourage her to eat - sometimes it seems like if they stop they just can't get started again without help.

We are sending her lots of purrs and prayers to eat!

Rosie is looking fantastic! Hopefully she eats soon enough to keep up those wonderful looks. Good luck with the chicken liver!

Rosie looks like she is trying to tell Arthur to move over because after all she is the sick one. Not always a good idea to make your own 3am trip to the bathroom as you might find no space left in the bed for you when you return.
Eat up those chicken livers Rosie they will be good for you.

Cindy said...

I pray she start eating. She looks great, like nothing is wrong, that is good.

Yes, chicken livers can be the very best. When Anneliese was very small she wouldn't eat and was so small. I cooked chicken liver for her and she got to be a big strong girl!
I hope that Rosie is better soon.

We hope Rosie feels better with each passing day, and that the chicken livers get her eating!

Bless her!

I also think the chicken livers are a good idea and I hope dear Rosie continues to improve!

sorry to hear that Rosie's appetite isn't back yet but she does seem to be better. She's showing interest in Arthur so that's good news. Hope she does even better tomorrow!

Gattina, yes the chicken livers will do. I don't know if it will work with Rosie I remember when my dog doesn't want to eat, I just gave him a bit of chicken livers and he began to eat the whole thing. I hope it will work with Rosie.

We really hope that Rosie likes her Chicken Livers and gets her appetite back. It's lovely seeing Roaie and Arthur together. Sending lots of purrs to help Rosie to start to eat by herself,
