Cat not eating

5 Replies

My 2 year old cat has suddenly started to refuse to eat. He seems ok within himself but just won't eat. Any ideas on how to get him to eat?

I'd take your cat to the vet to get checked out and to rule out any medical issues to be on the safe side.

Thanks Annies, I took him to the vet this morning as he is still refusing to eat. After blood tests and xrays they have ruled out a medical issue and said it may be stress. He is now on appetite stimulants for 2 days. If he is still not eating I have to take him back.

Definitely could be stress

I had a cat that lived to 21, at times, in her last year she had difficulty eating. I would make broth for her - boil some chicken or fish, preferably fatty bits with skin and bone, and wait for it to cool. No salt. Don't give milk.

Thanks for the replies. All of a sudden he has started eating again today. I'm very relieved but still not 100% sure why he stopped in the first place.
