Thankful Georgie is Home


 Guess what?  I am home!!!  I got home Tuesday and I feel a lot better but Mom says I still have to eat more so I can get this tube out of me.  I don't remember much of my hospital stay cuz I was so sick that I was out of it.  But I knew when my humans came to visit every day and perked up.  The top photo is me waiting for my discharge papers.  Boy was I relieved to go home.


 I didn't even mind having to go into the PTU!


 It was Once I got home it was a lot of activity - the beans had to learn to feed me with my tube. Pop actually did the food warming and syringing since he is a chef and is used to making sure food is a good temperature for me.  It does feel funny not to be eating and having the sensation of food going down my esophagus and into my tummy.  This photo is me chilling after all the food, and medications.

Woody photo bombed this shot.

Mom put me in my own room but I got over the gate no problem.  So the gate will no longer be up - they don't want me to hurt myself trying to get out.  I get a buffet of food to choose from everyday.  I am picky and will eat maybe one food a little bit.  Mom is upset cuz she thinks this is why I got this fatty liver thing.  I would rather not eat at all than have something I don't like!  Anyone else have a kitty like that?  Mom would like some suggestions....


This is me right now sleeping after the whole ordeal of feeding me and then changing my bandage.  The beans did good though, right?  Thanks you all for thinking of me and purring and praying for my recovery.  I know it worked. 
My vet bill was very very huge...it took a lot out of our beans savings to pay it and we need to get some back in our kitty care fund.  With 18 of us cats, it is not easy to come up with green stuff to pay bills.  If you could share our donation page - it would help us so much!

Oh, sweetie, you're breaking our human's heart. We're so glad you're home and are sending tons of purrs and purrayers that you start eating enough on your own, so you can get that tube out. Kitty kisses from us and smooches from our biped.

Georgie, tell your humans that our kitties like nutritional yeast on their wet food...something about it really attracts them to it, and they eat food as they lick the yeast! Maybe it will help you eat more, Georgie? We've also sprinkled canned Parmesan cheese on wet food, when we switched from all kibble to all canned. Angel would not eat the canned food, but she did once we sprinkled parmesan cheese on it! Now nutritional yeast does the same thing.

Georgie, we are so glad that you are back home again. I bet you will start eating when you get rested up from being in that darn hospital. Hope you eat soon.

We are so happy you are home, Georgie. You need to quit being picky and eat.

For your pawrents: At the shelter, we often add very warm water to canned food to make a thick sauce mixture. Due to the age of many cats, they are fed only minced canned food. The warmer food and easy lapping encourages picky cats to eat. At home, I've added meat baby food to canned food. If your canned food is in "chunks" you might try pureeing it--may need to add a bit of liquid. I use an small inexpensive electric chopper for that. Last but not least, try a variety of new foods--just purchase single cans to see if any spark Georgie's interest. Good luck :)

Annie Bear said...

Sweet Georgie, I can only imagine how happy you are (and your mom & dad too) to be home. I wonder if you would like baby food meat such as ham, turkey or chicken (no added ingredients but the meat). In the past I've had picky kitties love that. I sure hope you start eating.

It's so good to hear you're home, Georgie! Now you need to work on eating so you feel better soon. We are all pulling for you.

Very glad you are home. I will keep praying for you.

We will share the donation page for you. We wishes we could do more. We are so glad you are feeling better.

When Socks first came home from Medvet she gave him whatever he would eat which means he got lots of cat milk, cheese and chicken. Because it was real important he eat no matter what it was. Then they had to transition him to just eating the y/d food.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I am very glad to see you looking perky, Georgie. The Human says when her kitties (well, only me right now, but there have been many others!) didn't want to eat, most of then could not resist Gerber's chick-hen or turkey or beef. She's also had some luck with Royal Canin Kitten Food (little cans like Fancy Feast--soft and digestible though prolly high calorie). We have fingers and paws crossed that you will start eating more!

Katnip Lounge said...

We are thrilled you are HOME!!! Has your Mom tried Fortiflora? Kona is THE picky eater and it works for her.

I.M. us on FB--we could send you a few packets to try.

Georgie, I am so so glad you are home. Much love to you sweet girl.
