You are doing about the best you can under the circumstances. By all means you should continue to force-feed if she is not eating adequately on her own.

This is weird, but I just heard about someone who used incontinance pads as a sort of "litterbox" for a cat. She cut them and laid them in the litterbox and also around on the floor where her cat had been peeing. You might try this in the cage where she is - in the litterbox of course. However, this will complicate matters when she does get well and needs to get box-trained to real kitty litter.

You seem to be keeping in touch with your vet - please continue to do so. It sounds like you have a really good handle on what to do.

Best wishes to you and the cat. Keep us posted as to her progress.
