Later in the evening, I force-fed Felix with some steamed chicken. He fought when I pushed it in his mouth but would swallow once the chicken was in. After a few small pieces, I let him go and he was crunching at something so I opened his mouth and discovered he was chewing on some loose teeth. Which is understandable as he is now almost 6 months old. 2 of the pre-molars were dangling so I used a forcep to lightly tug at it and they came out easily. He has another 2 that are still half embedded in the gums so I left those alone. He may be sore from the loose teeth which would explain the not wanting to eat, and his lack of interest to play. But it doesn't explain why he vomitted in the first place. Good news is that he didn't vomit after eating the chicken last night. And I have seen him pee (nice sized puddles) so I know he's drinking.
I force-fed him some canned trout today (nice and cold to soothe the sore gums) which he ate (and no vomitting!). I hope when there's more food in him, he'll perk up. It's so sad to see him so miserable.
|Wonder if the cat toothfairy will pay for these? :)|

|A positive sign! Felix grooming himself|

|Felix likes to play with crunched up paper. He was definitely interested in the paper but I think he just doesn't have the strength to play at the moment. So he walked over to watch Coco play with it.|
|Meow-Me : It's okay Felix. You'll feel better soon. Make sure you eat what the human gives you, okay?|
