I don't know the whole background of your cat, but my vet just recommended baby food to me. Apparently cats love it (go figure!) and it has a lot of nutrition and also has some moisture in it. We just bought chicken and turkey flavor dinners and Allie loves them! My Allie hasn't really been eating since she came home from the hospital last week and has lost one pound in one month so the vet suggested trying the baby food to see if she would eat that. I can get about 2 tablespoons into her daily (without assistance) which I think is a decent supplement to the hard food she is taking in. You can also assist feed with it with a small spoon or something (I had a friend who feed her cat baby food every 2 hours) and since it's something they like, the cat may be more likely to take more in without forcing making it a more pleasant experience for both of you! Good luck!

Hi, Belinda, thank you so much for your encouragement- before I started
assist feeding, I did consider feedinb tube - my vet thoughts that she
could put one through his nose without anthesia (I was really concerned
about him going through the anethesia) Is feeding tube very
uncomfortable? I don't know what it looks like or feels like... 100cc
food -wow, that's a lot..I have been using 6cc syringe with Hannibal -
which means that I have to give him almost 20 of them.. He DOES eat on
his own, as a matter of fact, he has been feeling good for the past
couple of days as he went to outside enclosure to get some cool air
which he hadn't done for a couple of weeks -
How bad is Bailey's kidney, Belinda?
My Hanniba's kidney values weren't bad at all until a couple of months
ago.. As a matter of fact, with fluid therapy at him, it was almost
to normal.. Until I made him go through anethesia for a dental.. He had
a problem eating because of a bad teeth.. Then his kidney went down
hill.. I so regret this for the rest of my life.. I wish I figured out
way that his tooth could have been taken out without general
