she won't drink, totally miserable due to neck brace to stop her licking meds off wounds/lesions, am sure it is ringworm, vet to re-test tomorrow and to work out game plan. so worried and cat so miserable, horrible horrible situation, never seen her so pathetic in the literal sense

Are you sure she's not getting any liquid inside her bitofcheese? (She might be sneaking it from odd places or getting some from wet food if she's eating that OK.) If she's really not, how long has it been for and does the vet know this?

she has been eating a bit of wet and i just got her to drink a little bit from a saucer which was a relief. it's been nearly two days. i am so pleased she is going back to the vets tomorrow. i can't imagine her having the plastic collar on for two weeks. she can't groom herself, her fur is a sight not to mention the continued appearance of these lesion things, really rotten situation. i keep washing my hands every time i have touched her incase it is ringworm. my hands are so dry. i keep cuddling her, giving her facial tickles (as she can't) so am in and out of the bathroom :)

Try and get her to have some more and eat some wet. (I wouldn't offer her any dry in the circumstances.) You don't want her to get dehydrated.

Best of luck tomorrow.
