Great update....

Bear's appetite has slowly been improving over the last few days, I really think this may be it. He might be over this in 2-5 weeks if he keeps improving at this rate.

I was force feeding him 3-4 times a day, but earlier this week I felt comfortable enough to cut back to 2 times a day because he was eating enough for me to cut back some more. Yesterday & today I only force fed him once per day. He has been eating about 2/3 cups of dry food per day for the last 2-3 days.

Tonight I got him a few cans of Fancey Feast and Meow Mix in the plastic cups, just to give it a try again. He has not been eating wet on his own for a long time, except every once in a while where he woult eat a teaspoon of it, then make a face and walk away. I gave him one of the Meow Mix cups, he ate about half of it. I waited a couple hours and gave him the other half.  HE ATE IT!  It was a 2.75oz cup!!!

Guys, you have NO IDEA how happy I am about this!!!! I am scared to get too happy, because he could easily go back downhill but he is SO CLOSE to being normal again!!!!



I think he weighs close to 11lbs now, which is slightly overweight for him. I am not going to cut back his food anytime soon though. Not with known liver issues. When he gets better, and his bloodworks come back normal THEN I will focus on his weight.  I need your help again though,   I have some money towards the next vet visit, but not nearly enough. I really really want to get his bloodwork, I want to see if the levels are close to normal now (hopefully).

I've decided to not get the biopsy, he is way better now.  I feel that it really isn't needed at this point.


I just had to share the news, I can't even believe it myself.

Everyone has been AMAZING to us, I wish I could hug each and every one of you!!!!!!!!!!!!
