Your fishy foods did the trick! 3 doses into Tommy as of tonight. (I'm going to remember this if any of my indoor cats ever need panacur again - much easier to put it in the food than to syringe it.)
Now I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. At least he is going to be worm free (for a while).
Thanks, everyone!

Awesome news!  I know that Tommy will be feeling much, much better. Let's hope that big tummy goes down and we're not dealing with Thomasina instead. Shocked

Congrats on getting Tom(asina)'s worm meds in him(her)!  Now it's just waiting to see if it's worms, or kittens  Smiley

Great job CM!  I wonder how quickly you will see results if the Panacur works?

Just wanted to update everyone and ask yet another question about Tommy.
He comes almost every night for dinner and the past couple has eaten everything - all the wet food and all of the kibble. He doesn't look like a pregnant or nursing mom, but I want to make sure, of course. IF (s)he was a nursing mom, wouldn't (s)he eat quickly and then get back to kittens right away? That doesn't seem to be the case - sometimes he sits and has a bath before he heads off to his nighttime lodgings.
Just hoping against hope that I don't have kittens to worry about now, too.
Any opinions?

Even if you can't get really close, a nursing Mom has obviously enlarged nipples. When he/she is bathing you would see them. Tommy is probably eating more to stay warm & because he is starting to feel safer with the moved feeding station.

Thanks - but I moved the feeding station back where it was. Being right next to the garage and so close to the house just was not working and he was so stressed. I'm glad to hear that I would notice the nipples. He likely is just eating more since our weather has become more wintery. The idiot neighbor left Miss Kitty out all day today, so I'm glad I took everyone's advice and set her up with her own feeding area and shelter.

It's so stressful to love a feral - having your support makes it so much better.

ETA I gave Tommy Wellness in place of Friskies this week - ran out of the Friskies - and he's been licking the bowl clean! Guess I'll be treating him to the Wellness for a while.  Wink

It's hard to tell, but most of the unneutered toms I've encountered had very broad faces, unlike the girls. Maybe there would a clue to Tommy's gender in that. But then there are the exceptions, like my Pretty Girl who had a lovely wide face. Huh
