Besides all the negativity going on in your life is there anything positive?? Maybe seeing a positive will help a little but also besides the cat eating chicken :-):-)

Question is the 5-YO drinking?



oh, my... sick kids would be rough. // Hopefully the kids don't get sick, nor do U, but stress lowers immune function, so even if U usually don't catch every passing cold, U are vulnerable, at the mo'.

Is the younger cat still drinking enuf water? // Cats have desert ancestors, & often don't drink adequate fluids - those recirculating fountains with activated-charcoal filters are great for encouraging cats to drink - the sound of running H2O & the fresh scent of oxygenated water make them "feel thirsty", & they drink more.
A good fountain, with regularly-replaced filters, can literally add years to a cat's healthy lifespan; kidney failure takes many older cats, when they quit consuming sufficient fluids.

this one's exceptionally high-quality; medical grade glass & tubing, lead-free porcelain, USA-made -

if the bowl arrives cracked, contact them within 10-days & replacement is free; if U don't like it, the whole unit is returnable for 60-days.


These are beautiful, food-grade, durable, & hand-made in New England -

...lead-free glazes, many styles; as big & as fancy as U like, or smaller, simpler models.

Sadly I can?t really think of anything. I know things could be much worse though. At least my kids are relatively healthy (even if they get strep).

He is drinking. My husband watched him drink some last night and I saw him drinking some today before I gave him the chicken.

U can offer low-salt or 'no added sodium' chicken broth, to entice him to drink more - or to get both cats drinking more.
Flushing the bad stuff is always good, so extra fluids are a bonus.

I'll be thinking of U all - i doubt very much the puppy will be sick, or at least, not with Parvo.
I hope Strep skips the family.
