Basically, try anything in your refrigerator!  But things I've found that
sometimes worked:
Fancy Feast Classic Chicken
White Rose canned tuna (people tuna)
Cottage Cheese
Gerber Stage 3 baby food-ham or chicken or beef or turkey
Tuna water (from canned people tuna in water)
Ham or prosciutto
Kentucky Fried Chicken (boneless)
Chicken soup

None are recommended for long term use--but when you're basically just
trying to get something in the cat, go for anything they want...Also,
sometimes, just heating the food (not yogurt or cott cheese) a bit makes it
have more of an aroma.

Subject: [Felvtalk] What to feed a finicky, sick kitten?

Hello everyone!

This is my first time using this forum :)

I have a ten month old kitty, Polli, who was diagnosed with FeLV about two
months ago.  At that time, she started licking the walls and our potted
plants in addition increasing lethargy.  I took her to the vet where she was
diagnosed with severe anemia related to FeLV.  We were told we'd have to
assist her to the rainbow bridge within days of the diagnosis.  Thankfully,
she's a fighter and is still with us.  However, her appetite has been cause
for worry.  She's crazy about Temptations Treats and deli ham (I know, not
the most nutritious diet but I'm thankful for anything she eats).  The last
two days, though, she won't eat.  I've offered her baby food, Tiki Cat,
Ziwi's wet food, lunch meat, tuna and her favorite treats but to no avail.
I understand that the end may be near but I want to give everything a shot
before I make that call.  

So, my question is, what do you give your cat that they just can't say no
to? I'd love and appreciate any suggestions!

Thank you,
