can't figure out how to use this site! I got an answer, but it doesn't address
my concern. My cat hasn't eaten, or had anything to drink, since her surgery on Wednesday. She behaves as if she is interested in food, even begs for it, but as soon as she gets it near her nose or mouth, she backs away. the vet only suggested to try to entice her with different foods, but so far - nothing. Tried tuna, baby food, canned cat food, cooked meat, cheese, beef broth, cat treats, beef jerky....... have gone as far as putting it in her mouth, and she just lets it fall out. she is playing with the other cats, and acting normally in every other way. I am beyond worried. Won't she be dehydrated by now?
