Smudge stopped gaining much and then started losing weight. He never stopped playing, but he lost interest in eating. So yesterday I tried all sorts of treats, many of which he liked, and then he barfed. Today I bought and cooked them some chicken and they’re eating it up. Smudge is a little under 2 pounds, but that should be temporary.
I don’t know if the problem was the shots Friday, losing the two bigger siblings to forever homes on Sunday, a change in cat food flavors, or illness. Once a cat stops eating though, you need something really good to kickstart their appetite.
