Romeo, page 2

Looks just fine, doesn't he?  Acts just fine also...purrs, rubs his head against you, plays with Sienna... does EVERYTHING a cat should do.  Except eat and drink.  That he does NOT do.  And if you force him to do it by making food or water go into his mouth, he barfs.  End of story.  
The vet - today -  did an xray.  It looked just great.  Everything is in place where it is supposed to be, nothing is enlarged, nothing looks odd.  We are now at the $700 mark - even with my senior discount - and he is still not eating or drinking.  So we did fluids under his skin so he wouldn't get dehydrated and we forced some food.  The cab driver on the way home was not particularly happy, though none of it got on his cab, when that food came back in a return to sender kind of way.  

Clementine regards this as a Christmas situation, since we try all sorts of things to tempt him to eat and after he spurns them all she gets to eat them.  She is REALLY happy about this.  She is the only one.

I'm so sorry Romeo isn't feeling well. Hopefully you get it sorted out soon and he's alright. Poor thing. At least he doesn't seem to be in pain or anything. We're all thinking about him.
