trying to find a food to help your older ones eat, something really soft, and something that they will like...I have a suggestion that's working for me. |
Our old Fuzzy (17 1/2) is bone thin, drinks constantly (wants only by syringe, I give him it that way, and he laps as it lands on his tongue). He drinks about 200 cc a day. But he didn't care to eat or couldn't eat well. I'd syringe watered A/D. Watered Baby food.
I tried buying pouches of broth treats in packets, that went ok for a while. He'd lap that on his own.
But now I found a canned that he likes as well, it's very very soft and he ate almost a can today. 3 oz.
It's by Royal Canin, and it's specifically Baby Cat Pate. Very very soft, easy for them to lick, and swallow. And he likes it.
On the negative side, it's quite expensive. $1.65 for a 3 oz can. But I don't care, I just want him to eat. I've basically pretty much switched to Fancy Feast now, and tons of specialty foods trying to get a few of mine to eat well. And I buy a case of A/D a week too. I spend more now on 13 (well 14 with Jenny) than I did when I had 30.
Still some issues, Red can't eat regular food, he has those allergies and horrible diarreha, I give him Proplan canned. Seemed to help. But now I find if I make him a grilled cheese (and just give him the warm cheese, that helps his diarreha). So I do that once a day.
Soooooo glad I'm not working. I couldn't keep up with these guys. They need me here 24/7.
Hope everyone's kitties are doing well.
Kinda quiet here again, so thought I'd liven it up!
