Well, Max is toothless now. Unfortunately, he's so sore and swollen that he still doesn't want to eat. And I tried everything we have in the house.
So, today I went down to the Wallyworld and picked up a vast array of food items for him to try.
Salmon in a pouch
Tuna in a pouch
Frozen Swai (wth is that? some kind of fish)
five different types of cat foods in a variety of flavors
cat appetizers (yes, they make cat appetizers)
kitten pate (until this morning, the only food he would eat)
And a mini food processor to turn anything we try into a paste for Monsieur Gummer.
First up, the appetizers - shredded chicken in chicken broth. I took the container out there and he went wild trying to eat it. But he failed and gave up quickly. I then took the stuff into the kitchen, threw it into the food processor and made paste. He ate almost all of that. Score!
On the upside, we humans can eat the variety of human foods if he doesn't. (Thank goodness Hubs likes sardines. Blech.) And Kira can eat the cat foods he won't. So nothing will go to waste.
Yes, it seems insane. It may in fact be insane. But he's such a sweet boo-baby, he deserves whatever we have to do to make him feel better.
What's the weirdest, sorta-insane thing you've done for one of your furbabies?
