last meal suggestions please

so one of my cats is really sick...i spent as much as i could on treatment and short of doing the surgery, which would be a few more thousand that i already spent to remove the stone from his bladder i have to put him down.


i want to spoil him tuesday/wed morning since he is being put down wed afternoon.....what do you think a cat would love for his last meal? the only thing i can think of is to get a variety of sushi for him and just let him pick out what he wants? any suggestions please?

I would let him eat whatever his favorite foods are. Tuna would make my girls happy.

Re: last meal suggestions please

Welcome to CatForum and I am so sorry it is under such sad circumstances.
I'd get a variety of things, but I also wouldn't get too creative. I would be concerned with giving the kitty stomach upset from extremely different foods than it is used to. I think I'd just offer some cooked meat, like chicken or beef. Maybe some fish like Salmon or Tuna. Whatever the kitty has shown an interest in, in the past. Or how about some canned foods?
Hold yourself together. You are doing the very best that you can for your kitty and this final act is one of ultimate sacrifice and love, to do what is best for your cat even though you know it will hurt your heart.
