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.
Hey, MizB. I haven't had the heart to come back and tell everyone that my old cat, Prince Albert, died. It was more than lack of appetite. He was shutting down, I guess. At least it was a quick decline. I appreciate your input and everyone's.
Victoria, I'm so sorry. I'm so afraid that is happening to my Katrina, too.
I'm sorry to hear that, MizB. Let me know what happens with Katrina. It's hard.
I didn't have the heart to come back and say anything either, but little Katrina was shutting down, too. She had a series of strokes and died three days before my birthday last September. It was heartbreaking for us.
I'm so sorry to hear that MizBejabbers, about your Katrina. I know how hard it is. It will be a year in June for my Prince Albert. I wish he was still here. Thanks for letting me know about Katrina. I know she's still with you. :-)
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!
If your cat likes the lunchmeat diet be sure to search for a vitamin supplement, like the type suggested by Msbejeebers. I do not know how old your kitty is but it should help him stay around a lot longer.
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
And oh yeah, don't give kitty mollasses if he's diabetic. Forgot to mentiont hat but it is a common old cat problem...
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. :-
