What if your cat stops eating?

cateatA healthy cat usually has a healthy appetite. If your cat suddenly stops eating, these are the things that you should look for. Is he still drinking water?  Is he lethargic? Is he vomiting or have diarrhea? If he appears fine and is drinking, he may be having a couple of “off” days. Try moving his food to a quiet place, or adding some wet food to his diet. Try giving his some cat treats. If  he does not start eating normally in two days, contact your vet. If he is vomiting, or has diarrhea, get him to the vet immediately! If you wait too long, it may be too late.  Cat illnesses come on very fast and can really take it’s toll on your cat.
