How slow should I go and how much vomiting is reasonable? This is likely a 15+ year old cat and he has loss of muscle already. Not being able to digest a couple meals makes him a bag of bones again. Honestly, I brought him home to make his last days peaceful so thatís what my priority is. Giving him raw snacks seemed to make him thrive so I wanted to give it try full time. Did my research, tried a bunch of things and now I have a freezer full of meals that he canít keep down. It started off so well (at the beginning of August) but now Iím not sure.
Between the vomiting, hunger in middle of the night and the weight loss Iím wondering if he just canít be switched at this point in his life. Or, what the benefit is of trial and error when heís been doing fine with canned. On the other hand, we are going to be getting a second, younger cat very soon and I plan to feed raw so it would be great to have them on the same food.
Iím open to any suggestions on how to work this out that donít include him not having those last peaceful days he deserves. Other than a couple chicken necks, Iíve tried chopping up his food really fine, in small pieces and extra chunky but he throws up that and ground turkey/chicken just the same. None of this was a problem until a week ago so Iím really at a loss now.
He hasnít had kibble since the first week I brought him home, although I was tempted to put some out when the middle of the night wake-ups started.
Iím mostly feeding Wellness grain-free turkey and chicken and tried Nature's Variety chicken and Primal pheasant, neither of which seemed to agree with him.
