    Cat pukes after eats some foods

    My cat is a fussy eater. If he’s hungry and eats something that isn’t his favourite he will puke it. Not sure why he does this. I am guessing he is so hungry but eats anyways. Not sure if behaviour issue or not but if I give him something he likes it stays down! Thoughts?

    Can Stella and Chewys be left out unmixed?

    We sometimes go away for a few days. My cat sitter will come once a day to feed and change litter. Can Stella and chewys be left out as a dry meal in replacement of a second raw feeding? If not, are there any other suggestions for cat sitters? Boarding/kennelling isn't an option.

    My vet recommended lysine for my cats so I purchased the paste from their clinic. May cats don't like it! Is it safe to give human grade lysine, like from a pharmacy? I found this one online.

    I've been researching and I have to admit I'm a little overwhelmed at all the options! Is it really necessary to put vitamins and supplements in the food or can I just use meat, organ and bone?
