    I've had this recipe archived at FD Library for years. I've always heard that it was great and that even the worst case of inappetence could be overcome with it. Never tried it before.

    A couple of weeks ago Harley (my 15 year old civie) had a stroke. Saddle thrombus. She is slowly recovering, but in addition to the heard disease that caused her to throw a clot, she also has an inflamed pancreas and has been unable to keep any food down. We tried everything to get her to eat.

    I finally dug up this recipe and went out and bought all the stuff. mixed up a batch. Looking at it, it was nasty. dark green frothy muck.

    Put a tablespoon on a plate and offered it. Harley, who has not eaten more than 2-3 bites of food a day for days, licked the plate clean! gave her 2 more tablespoons. she cleaned her plate again. And again. I am now a true believer in something i've always recommended but had no personal experience with!

    Here's the recipe. You may not need it today, but please save it and remember it for the day you do need it.

    THE '~LIVER SHAKE~' FOR SICK CATS

    This liquid food is appropriate for cats suffering from conditions where they are eating very little or not at all such as anemias, leukemias, deficiency states with symptoms of lethargy, listlessness, and weakness.

    1 cup RAW LIVER (BEEF, or CHICKEN)
    1 cup FRESH CARROT JUICE or V-8, or Tomatoe Juice
    1/4 cup *FRESH FILTERED WATER
    1 RAW EGG YOLK
    1 tsp.KELP POWDER OR SPIRULINA


    COMBINE AND MIX IN A BLENDER UNTIL LIQUEFIED. (Note: it will be frothy)

    Dosage:

    Administer 10cc daily 3-6 times a day. (6Occ per day max)

    Some cats will need to be force-fed with a syringe, while others will drink it out of a bowl.

    This food has a sweet and salty taste, and the energetic properties of tonifying (energy boosting), warming and stimulating and supports the kidneys, spleen, liver and stomach.

    This drink is a complete dinner for a sick cat until they feel good enough to eat by themselves again.

    *Substitute rice water if the cat has diarrhea. Rice water
    is made by boiling white rice (2 Tbsp) with water (1cup) for 30 minutes.
    This liquid aids digestion and assimilation and inhibits the symptoms of diarrhea.
