    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Hi There! I know we spoke about calories before..and gosh Sassy currently just has me all stressed out with at times acting like her self and other times just seems quite or unatttentive. As you said with your Feeby, similarly seems Sassy has her off and on days. I just don't see how this on...

Just since yesterday and now through today so far she hasn't been on her A-game eating wise, eating very little. I'm almost wondering if I should just call up vet next week and order...

    Re: Cat Food Updated Nutrition Chart/Values - Eg. Phosphorus amount - Canned Wet food?

    Thank you for that. I just checked it, rather interesting it shows the ingredients. I think though most sites of the branded food show the ingredients as well I believe, but this is helpful too. But I was looking in more along the lines of charts that show actual number/values of how much...

    Re: Cat Food Updated Nutrition Chart/Values - Eg. Phosphorus amount - Canned Wet food?

    Hello, I used to follow this site below where shows a whole variety of canned wet food for cats their Nutrition Composition. But its an outdated one dating back to 2017. I used it solely to check protein and phosphorus levels for my cat Sassy whom has CKD for past few years, and of late, she...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Hello, Sassy been doing okay since week ago or so. She still eating her frequent meals and specific 3 hourly intervals (though yesterday was nearly every 2 hours) and still some days where she doesnt eat as much as the other day prior. So on and off days but never a point where she stopped...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Well, this was the primary vet's response...as in past times, not as helpful... "Hi, thanks for reaching out. These symptoms are non specific and potentially could be due to numerous underlying diseases. I understand your not wanting to stress her with an exam, however, without further...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Totally understand. And I will be re-considering to take her in possibly this week. I just emailed her primary vet to see what feedback he gives me. Only reason I'm reconsidering is that today/this morning she didn't seem to interested in her food overall, both dry and wet. Didn't drink as...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Oh sorry I probably wasn't as clear as I was rushing to fit in the message before I had stepped out. It just feels like she has some automatic built-in timer in her now that she barely goes to sleep for any longer then 3 or 4 hours straight MAX. As mentioned before, she used to be on 6+...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    So as n update as of 1/02/21: Sassy ate pretty well last night and this morning but could be leftover effect of the mirtazapine...but also I tried ignoring her a bit and spacing her meals out a bit so she can feel bit more hungry at each meal. She has been sleeping bit more today and did not ask...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Hm, to your point about your Feeby may be content with refusing food even if shes hungry...then what happens? You mention that you think your kitty is content for rejecting a food...which may be the case for Sassy but that what triggers me the most. That's the primary issue I get and adds bit...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Hello, and Happy New Years!! To you, and family and lovely Feeby! :) I think (don't know where I checked as it was years ago), but Charlie's food did have low phosphorus in them. I will post in the Nutrition section to see if anyone else has further help for that nutrition chart. I googled but...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Ah ok yes, Ill add water. Should it be bottled water or fresh tap water or boiled water? As of this morning, she did eat even further less of her dry food as she really isnt chewing it and instead swallowing it, but she ate half of her fancy feast, 1/4 of a new flavor fancy feast I made her...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Yes, I have set up an appointment this coming Saturday with regular primary vet...figured Id try one last time with them at least for the bloodwork and possible Xrays. I did tell them though if Sassy does not continue to decline or appetite further lessen, then I may just hold off on it. The...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Another update as of this morning 12.30.2020 - 740an edt. So Sassy ate bit further more last night before bed so overall consumption I can say was about average. Then over night this past night she came in around 345am my room to ask for dry food. This was first time she didnt finish the dry...

    My cat Sassy 18yr old Short Hair - Appetite Issues (again) - result of early CKD progressing?

    Oh, yeah thats about roughly...7oz of food your Feeby eats overall a day give or take. I think my cat averages that around that amount too roughly with intake of dry food throughout the day/night. She definitely does not finish all her 5.5oz can at night and def doesn't finish all her 3oz can...
