Thanks XXX.

She's in the hospital now and they have force fed her and gave her water. We've gone thru the antibiotic they gave us, and I've got the scratches to show. At the end of my rope now, thats why I was hoping someone has had a similar experience. I am hoping the blood tests will turn something treatable up.

It still sounds like a viral infection of some kind as they do change a cats behaviour, cause fever, loss of appetite and that can lead to the cat having that little energy that its falling over etc.

Theres a list on this site here of possible things that cause fevers etc...

Im no vet of course. I just know what its like when you animal is unwell, I lost one of my cats on boxing day last year to cancer after four years of trying everything I possibly could.

Yes blue - we got her vaccinated last year. We were afraid she might have internal injuries after being thrown out of a moving car, so the next day after I brought her home I took her to the vet for x-rays and vacinations.

Sorry I hope she recovers well. I'll say a prayer for her. She sounds like she needs it.

Give her some cat nip and try to give her a dot of peanut butter and dab it on her nose.

If she likes it give her a little dot to like off your finger.

If she is liking that I would think it is more of a . thing. If you stomach is bad and hurting you wont go tasting stuff if you cannot eat it.

You know when your puking your brains out the last thing you want to do is eat right.
Kitties are the same and have very sensitive stomaches.

Good luck.

Got a lump in my throat XXX. I am an animal lover too, like you couldn't tell. I am thinking maybe an amoeba infection, which needs different drugs than what we've been giving her. I love that little baby. She follows me around like a puppy and sleeps on my back when I go to sleep - best feeling in the world. She makes "bed" on my side ribs which tickles like crazy, but I put up with it.
I want to get her well so much.

Thanks Rocky, I think God loves little animals more than us, or he should - they are better than us.

She's in the animal hospital, so hopefully they'll find out whats wrong and hopefully there will be a treatment.

I would also point you towards buying a feeding syringe from a pet store and using it to give the cat water if it is not drinking by itself. You might want to think about trying this with food as well, liquidise some cat meat and use a syringe such as this one here...

Buy some Children's Tylenol... It's weak enough to use on cats to help with pain (was recommended by our vet), and comes with a dropper you can use to both administer this, and water, etc.

I had a cat with similar symptoms, but he was far, far older (about 17), but I doubt it's a similar case. I think he was simply dying of old age.

Your issue may be one that will cure with time, but I too would echo what others have said, and seek out a feline specialist vet.

As for holding a combative cat...get some garden gloves (the leather kind) and grip with your fingers pinning in the front claws. Placing fingers just behind the shoulder blades will often also help keep the cat still. You're never using much force, so won't hurt it, if you do it right. May want to have one person hold, and another administer water, etc. with a dropper or syringe.

We've done that Gaz. I don't want to lose this little girl.

Hard to think straight - which just got pointed out to me. Im going to go back over all you guy's suggestions again. I've lost some sleep over this babydoll.

Spent an hour or so at the vet hospital holding my baby. I can kill a man breaking into my house and eat a sandwich while I call the police. But a kitten steals my heart and my lady love's heart - we will do anything for them.

They still have no clue what is wrong.

Sad to hear it. At least they are probably able to get her to eat or drink something, to help her fight it off.

Sounds not too disimilar to what my 3 cats are going through at the moment.

Starts with sneezing and coughing and progressed to wheezing and respiratory issues.

One of them had watering eyes and a snotty nose too but he has made a pretty good recovery after I gave him some medication from previous illness, cystytis, and the med was "Marbocyl". I looked it up and it's primary use was for respiratory problems so two daily doses of one pill seemed to help.

I'm keeping a close eye on the other two, keeping them warm and may take them to the vets on monday if they get worse.

I have been researching online and this might help you to make a diagnosis...

I am cutting out dry food for them from now on and will be giving bottled water only. Too much rubbish in "crunchies" and I want to eliminate any causes possible from tap water.

I've been racking my brains as to what might have brought this on. Food poisoning...possible, but wouldn't they all get sick at the same time? Bronchitis is high on the list as I have had it myself, other than that it's just love, attention, warmth and good food with a trip to the vet if needed.

It's terrible when our little balls of fluff get sick. Good luck to you and your lot. Prrrrr! Let us know how you get on.

Download a function generator, consult the RIFE FREQUENCY list, use your pc speakers as the output. It is legal to use the rife frequencies on animals so dont worry about the FDA breaking down your door. The pc speakers WILL work dont listen to the haters, I cured a massive cunjunctivitous invection in a kitten with its and also mastitous in the mother. You will have to find the right frequency for your cat, I would try spinal/brain fluid infection and then maybe blood parasites/infection, maybe also a nerve disorder.

Any updates on the lil kitty?

She is such a gorgeous kitten!! I really hope she gets better soon, I'll be thinking of her

That happened to my cat a few years ago. She ate the tail off of one of those blue lizards we have here in north Florida. She got really weak for three days. I put some meow mix pellets in water to soften them a bit. I force fed (put it in her mouth and rubbed her throat) her about 3 or 4 pellets of food every 2 or three hours and she was fine the next afternoon.
