Certain antihistamines that are given to cats are also an appetite 
stimulant.  Chlorpheneramine is one.  I think it's a little yellow pill 
if I remember correctly.  It's better than giving cortisone which also 
increases appetite but I believe would be contraindicated for a cat who 
has a malignant tumor.  You need to ask your vet about this.  It has no 
harmful side effects as far as I can remember.  I gave it to a cat who 
had terminal salivary gland cancer and it kept her eating right up until
 the end, that and anti- nausea drugs because she had had a chemo pill 
every week for several months to stop the growth of the tumor. I have 
since decided that that treatment, the chemo pill was a waste of $2000. 
 Another cat who had a tumor in a different location lived just about as
 long as Baby Face,
 without getting chemo. Chemo is also very hard on other organs, causing
 diarrhea, fur loss and exhaustion.
