Suggestions on what to feed an old cat who isn't eating very well?


Any high calorie stuff he might like? he is getting pickier and won't eat things he used to eat.

    Well, after making this comment, Katrina has gone off her feed and doesn't seem to care for anything. I hope it is just a temporary phase. About all she likes is the juice off wet food.

    Thanks, carter06. I think that's what I need to do. He is old and bony and needs calories. I need to think outside the box and feed him anything he will eat. I'll try some lunchmeat and other meats. Thanks!

    High protien greek style yogurt, not non fat, the cat needs the fat. It is easy to swallow, my old girl loves the honey flavored. Good luck ! Blessings your way

    Actually cats should be eating primarily wet food, they need the moisture otherwise can cause kidney problems. Vets have reversed their favoring dry food because of this. I still always leave a little bowl of dry in case she runs out of food.

    Yes, Earl, he died shortly after I posted the question. I guess there was nothing to do. He was 20 yrs old or so. I tried everything. I think I had Nutrical from the vet. Sorry about your Sasha. It's hard to lose them when you're so close to them. :-
