I still have half the can in the fridge. She doesn't seem to enjoy eating "rests".
That's a pretty common problem. Make sure you are warming the food for a few seconds in the microwave to take off the chill. Cats don't generally like food cold from the fridge.
I just opened the can of EVO 95% chicken and turkey (the two previous cans were tuna and fish) and she had less than a teaspoon.
My cats dislike the taste of EVO chicken and turkey. The only way they'll eat it is if I mix it with something else. I have found that my cats much prefer cheap grocery store canned foods like Friskies and Fancy Feast. They must contain a lot of tasty flavorizers, because my cats will always choose them over the pricey, premium quality brands.
You could also roast some chicken for her and feed her small pieces from your hand. She may love that, and it would be a good bonding exercise for the two of you. You can try the same thing with commercial cat treats like Temptations or Pounce. You really just need to get more calories into her system, even if it is in the form of kitty junk food treats
seems to be scared of the bowl.
Rinse the bowl very thoroughly in hot water only - NO soap or detergent of any kind. It's possible that there may be some residual odor from your dish detergent that Minoune finds repugnant.
I do add extra water to the wet food so she is getting some kind of fluids, but definetely not enough.
If she is becoming dehydrated, that can make her feel really lousy and inappetant. You may need to take her back to your vet to be rehydrated.
I bought a feeding bottle for babies and tried to force her to drink last night, but just a few squirts and the experience traumatized her.
I'm not surprised. She just had some pretty painful stuff forced on her at the vet's office, so anything that gets forced on her right now is likely to cause anxiety. Also, it's all too easy to cause a cat to choke and aspirate water into the lungs when squirting liquid into the mouth. That's risky business. If Minoune isn't taking in sufficient water on her own, a much safer way to administer fluid is to have your vet teach you how to administer subQ fluids at home.
She sometimes miaows when I approch her, but not from happiness. She spent most of the day hiding places
It sounds to me like you definitely need to get her back to the vet right away for a post-surgical check. Minoune may have deveoloped an infection from the surgery, and if that's the case, it needs to be treated immediately.
She figured out how to remove her collar while I was sleeping and she hid in a spot where I couldn't pick her up for a couple hours. I replaced it with a regular cat collar instead of the little ribbon that comes with it so she can't slide from it and she probably hates me even more.
You should take that collar off whenever you feed her and offer her water. She may be avoiding the bowls because she knocks the collar against them, and that jabs and irritates her neck. Poor baby. In fact, keep the collar off of her whenever you have time to supervise her to make sure she doesn't bother her incision. Only make her wear the collar when you can't keep an eye on her.
Here is what I meant by Minoune being skeletic for a 1 year old:
I don't know if it's just my internet connection or what, but your full-size pics aren't opening properly because of the huge file sizes. All I can see are the small thumbnail photos, and it's hard to see any detail in them. Can you reduce the file sizes substantially and upload them again?
how can you name your cat Love and give her up to a place where 80% of adult cats are put to sleep??!!
I gave up trying to understand the heartlessness of many human beings a long time ago.
Should I feed her like a kitten?
It wouldn't hurt to offer her kitten formula foods while she needs to pick up weight. They do tend to be higher calorie and more nutrient-dense than adult formulas. In fact, she might enjoy some KMR (kitten milk replacer) that you can buy at any pet store or maybe even Walmart.
And what should I do at the moment for the next 10 days with the collar?
First, get her back to the vet for a recheck ASAP to make sure she's not actually ill and to get her some fluids, if necessary. Second, take off that collar anytime you can supervise her. Third, don't force liquids into her mouth anymore. Fourth, feed her yummy treats and cooked chicken to pique her appetite. Fifth, spend as much quiet, loving time with her as you can.
Oh, are you giving her antibiotics? If so, many of them can make a cat feel nauseous, so that may account for some or all of her inappetance right now. If that's the case, ask the vet for a different antibiotic.
If it's still extremely hot there, set up a fan at floor level in the room where she likes to hang out. That way she can lie in front of the fan if she gets too hot.
Lastly, here are links to lots of tips and tricks to help get her eating:
I hope some of this helps you.
