My almost 2 year old, tortoise shell cat, named Korina, used to eat her wet food really well. She always has fresh water and dry food out for her. She has a set breakfast and dinner time, a pouch in the morning around about 8-9 AM, and at night around about 8-9 PM, and she would nibble dry cat food throughout the day and drink her water. She’s done this her whole life and I have always made sure she wouldn’t get bored of her food by changing it every now and then, and she would love it and eat the whole thing.
Then, all of a sudden, she stopped. I did her one pouch for breakfast and she didn’t even eat half of it. I had to throw it away, then at night she wouldn’t even eat half of it and I had to throw it away as well. I tried that again for a few more days and nothing was working. I even tried leaving one pouch in there for her to eat throughout the day, but again she didn’t even eat half of it. Also, I’ve changed her food up as well to see if that’s the issue - now I have to give her more dry food so she doesn’t starve because she’s won’t eat anything else.
She’s definitely drinking loads more, but she goes to the toilet fine and is popping better as when she was a kitten. She didn’t poop very much, she would only wee all the time, but I don’t know what to do. I still give her a pouch as I can’t just give her dry food as she doesn’t eat much of it and that pouch she is still only eating less than half. I’ve got to take her to the vets next Friday, as she’s booked in to be spayed.
Should I ask them what could be wrong? I’m really worried, and she’s my first fur baby I’ve had her since she was 10 weeks old and I was 16/17, I’m now 18. I’m moving soon and I’m afraid my baby could be ill. She’s definitely lost weight also, but she’s a small cat anyway she’s smaller than normal cats. Someone (when she was eating well and wasn’t even a year old she was 6 months old) said she looked skinny and starved - though I knew that’s not the case as I fed her well and she was the rung of the litter, and even now is a very small cat.
But now she actually is starting to look skinny and I’m worried.
