I don’t know. About Dart, that is. This evening she wouldn’t eat the scrambled eggs/cheese/cream I’ve been giving her, or canned food. Finally I made one last effort. Rhia had made a cheesy rice with chicken dish a few days ago, and we’d both eaten all we could stand. There was a little left over so I tried that, and Dart wolfed it down. Like she was starving to death. Which she is. Or has been.
I didn’t think she was gonna live thru wednesday night. Now this.
I wonder something. This all started when we changed to a low fat food for Kasha with the intention of supplementing Dart with eggs & liver, etc. But due to my migraines, she didn’t get anything but dry for several days. She doesn’t like it so didn’t eat it I think.
I know from experience that if you fast for several days, yoou lose your appetite completely & even the thought of food is revolting.
What if that’s what happened to Dart? Does that make sense? It jives with her behavior. If I put a bit in her mouth she spits it out but then would get interested.
But didn’t have to do that tonight.
I don’t know. But I do know, she’s going to sleep with a full stomach tonight. She’s not starving to death. At least not right now. And for that, I am very thankful.
