I had a Keeshond once and she dearly loved raw potatoes. I kept the bag by the door leading from the kitchen to the garage. Whenever she went out she'd stop by for the biggest potato she could find to take with her.
She ate anything... sauerkraut didn't set well with her stomach and I only gave her that once!

When she got old the vet put her on a diet of lamb & rice which you could only get at the vet's office! $1.00 a small can. I never thought about hamburger and rice or I would have made her that myself. Instead I wrote Alpo and told them my dilemna... that you couldn't buy it in the store... and they now have come out with it. Too late for my dog, though, unfortunately.

luvs_food. You need to get your cat onto drinking water. I think your cat has strong instincts. In the wild, cats don't eat at the watering hole. Try placing water away from where your cat eats.

My cat drinks water from bowls I have set on the bathroom vanity, on the washer, in the living room, great room, and out in his special screened in patio and yard. He's always refused to drink any water in the kitchen where his food is.

The extra bowls of water is part of his crf therapy. Vet says cats are opportunistic water drinkers. They'll drink water if it's convenient. Otherwise, they'll stay thirsty and wait to drink until they are in the area of their water. Since he drinks his water, I don't have to stick him with the needle to give him fluids from the bag.

I had a dog that thought she was human. She would jump up in a chair at the kitchen table & sit with her paws on the table while my mom was cooking.

MY cat Sox's favorite treat is teriyki jerky.
I can open a bag of it in another room while he is asleep and he comes running.

He gets Purina Salmon and rice that's his favorite. But he won't hardly eat wet food.
I also put The Missing Link on his food.

He likes cheese and salami. But he isn't fun to sleep with after the salami.
:roll:

It is a vitamin suppliment. With lots of stuff in it and his coat is beautiful. My mom started putting it on her 8 yr old cats food. (one brother and two sisters) and their coats are great.. they talk more and play more.

georgeart, isn't it great the way that sort of thing perks them up?
advantage flea medicine helps them, too. my one cat had a reaction, though!
my one kitty has to go to the vet tomorrow, sigh. he must have a bladder infection. poor guy is straining and straining but nothing is coming out. it's so sad when the cats get sick; they don't understand why they are in pain or are feeling ucky, and it's not like you can explain it to them. okay, i'm getting tearful, i must go pet him now. poor guy.

luvs_food, I hope that your kitty feels better. My dog, Skidder, eats raw veggies. His favorites are: bellpepper, carrots, cauliflower, and spinach. He also likes bananas. Other than that I just feed him IAMS dry dog food and pedigree canned dog food. He gets a small bowl of milk every morning. When he is at my parents home gets one small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Bet your vet will put your cat on CD food.

How long has your cat been suffering? Couldn't your vet take him in sooner? My cat's vet will always see my cat immediately if he's ill. They don't make him wait for an appointment. If there's a problem, they want to see him yesterday.
