So I have this little cat. Increasingly little, in fact, because she eats very little and has to be tempted to eat even that. Which is typical of many old people so I guess it can be typical of an old cat as well. And if I’ve been at work all day, she’ll ignore food in favor of cuddling as close to me as she can, all evening long.
So this evening I had the inspiration: why not bring her food over next to me?
Worked like a charm. She immediately dove into her food as if she was starving, despite the fact she’d just spent an hour ignoring it.
I think it’s worth the odor of trout feast next to my chair, if it’ll get a few calories into my rapidly disappearing cat….
