My 13 year old female cat has become afraid of eating, it started when she choked on a small treat 4 weeks ago. I have tried giving her food in different rooms and in different bowls, but she would eat a little morsel and then run away from it and then she stopped eating completely until I brought her a cooked chicken and for 3 days she ate but has stopped again. before she would eat dry food morning and evening and a small portion of wet food in the evening. I really need help. thank you
Your cat could have all kinds of medical problems (esophageal problems, a dental abscess, kidney failure, etc.) I would take her to a vet.
Not to be confused with throwing up or coughing up a hairball, I have read choking (obstructed airway) in cats is very rare. I have never actually seen a cat choke, and I watch a lot of cats.
I am not sure how much your cat is actually eating. If a cat isn't eating its normal food it is super important to get them to a vet as soon as possible as that means something is very wrong.
I'd be taking her to the vet ASAP.. while it's plausible that it's just a fear reaction to a one-off choking incident there could be a medical issue that's preventing her from eating properly and at the very least you need to rule that out as a first step.
If she's still drinking okay then you could try getting her some soup (the kind that's made for cats not humans!) e.g: https://www.purina.co.uk/cat/gourmet/product-range?filter=tags.texture.soup&gclid=CI2g_4Lj09QCFcqd7QodTw8PBA which will at least be getting her some nutrition but I still think a vet needs to check her out.
