I am a pal of ladycurmudgeon, just wanted to let you know I've been through the same thing recently with a kitty (bad tooth made her stop eating). Everything you described is what they had me do with Mimi, down to the same food. One thing I want to suggest with the IV fluids, move the needle to different places so she doesn't get sore with the multiple pokings and be prepared to hang out for 5-10 minutes so she can get her fluids. Also, the vet tech suggested pulling the skin onto the needle, less painful to kitty, it seems. Hopefully you won't have to force-feed. I like to give a half can of food, 3x a day, slightly warmed (10 seconds in microwave, 15 if refrigerated leftovers).

Mimi is recovered nicely and slowly putting weight back on. Hopefully Jazz will be recovered soon too.
