Well after a long 8 to 9 months she finally ate a rat Sunday. My brother attempted to feed her one XXL rat. He dangled it in front of her as she lay in her "pool"(small shallow tote) and he said she came up out of it and snatched the rat. He checked later that evening and she was holding the rat down. Said he could see it in her stomach. This tells me there is significant weight loss. I asked him to feed her another today. If this goes well then we can try for a 3rd in a day or two. I'm not wanting to gorge or power feed her but need to get her weight back up. I am happy about this but by no means is she out of danger. Still have no clue as to why she quit eating or shall I say pinpoint the cause. Just thought I would update what was going on for those who care.
