I'm so overwhelmed and distraught right now, I don't know what to do. My 2 yr old cat just suddenly stopped eating this past Thursday night. Earlier that day he had very foul smelling stool, I could smell it from the other room; later that night he threw up his last meal and since then has eaten only 4-5 pieces of large kibble - total. He threw up again 2 days ago but it was just bile. He was at the vet most of the day yesterday getting x-rays, urinalysis, blood work and fluids. 630 dollars later, the vet couldn't find anything obviously wrong aside from some gas. I will get blood results today, but I'm preparing for the worst. I should think more positively but 5 days of no food or water?? I've been doing my best the past couple of days to force some food down with a syringe but most of the food ends up on me. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get some food and meds into him without totally traumatizing him? He will not sit still for me to try to open his mouth to feed him and he spends most of the day under the bed, so I can't even get to him most of the time. Any advice/help/personal experience would be really great right now, as I am completely discouraged.
