I was afraid to take my ailing cat to the vet today, but did. She's been hospitalized and is being put on IV fluids in efforts to rehydrate her along with precautionary antibiotics. Due to declined appetite and lack of eating, my cat now has a compromised liver and is jaundiced. The vet hopes to get her eating again, which is really the only "cure" at this point. I really hope my cat rallies and comes through this, but realistically her prognosis does not seem good at this point, especially if we can't get her eating again. I will work to stay positive, but positivity doesn't pay vet bills.
