Default My poor cat. :(

For the last three or four days, Sassy hasn't been eating very well. I had about 1/4 of a bag of EVO left, and she was eating less and less, just nibbling at it, so I thought she might be sick of it or something. I opened a bag of Acana (something she's eaten very well in the past) last night, and she had only eaten a few pieces by this morning. I coaxed her into eating some canned food this morning, but only a little bit. I'm going to pick up some Fromm (her absolute favorite kibble) at work tonight, so hopefully she'll eat that. If she hasn't eaten anything by tomorrow morning, we're going to the vet.

She's still acting normal, so I'm hoping she's just going through a weird picky stage. She's an older cat (around 10), and I really hope nothing's wrong.

With cats it might be worth taking her in for a blood panel sooner rather than later.

I'd say a checkup at the vets is a good idea.

I hope it's nothing serious Try to make her eat as much as you can, getting food in cats is extremely important.

Cats not eating can become very serious very quickly! I'd get her in sooner than later if at all possible!

I fed her some dehydrated chicken treats before I left for work, and she gobbled those right up. I picked up two bags of Fromm and PureVita (the two kibbles that she's ate in the past with the most gusto) at work tonight, put down about 1/4 cup when I got home, and she immediately ate it all. So it looks like it's a case of her being too picky for her own good.

I swear, she causes me more worry than the dogs and the birds put together lol.

Thanks for all the vibes, guys! I know I can always count on my Chazzers!
