    Litter stuck in paw pad

    This looks like an ulcer and infection and not necessarily cat litter stuck. Its scabbed. Definitely go to a vet or send pics to the vet. Try gabapentin to calm kitty before vet visit - ask the vet about that.

    Experience with Mirtazapine?

    While kidney diets are great, if she was doing fine maybe looking for low phosphorus foods but still giving her some of what she likes may be best. A fed cat is better than a cat refusing to eat.... kind of like fed is best in the breastfreeding/ formula discussion.
