 Yes, for one of my kits, I spread a thin layer of baby food on top of 
 healthier food---just enough to get the smeller going.   You can also crumble 
 kibble on top of better food, or use other really smelly bribe foods as 
 toppers, e.g., bonito flakes, tuna water, crushed dried tuna, nutritional 
 yeast, etc.

 that, than losing weight and dying. Natalie

 There are some who believe dry food causes CRF, so you may want to research 
 more on this.   Try the Holisticat.com site and Googling for other folks.

 Thanks, Natalie and all who responded. I've got Manny on prescription K/D dry 
 food, baby food meats and lots of water dishes all over the house. He's 
 probably close to 15 years old and has had CRF for several years. He's put on 
 some weight recently and I'm hopeful he'll be around a few more years. Lots 
 of love from this sweet, black cat!
