I tried this on a whim because I knew he liked brothy food
March 27, 2016
My 16-year-old cat suffered renal failure (one kidney only, the other one still works) and lost his appetite. He got dehydrated and really sick very quickly. I took him to the vet and she thought he was not long for this world. But she gave him subcutaneous fluids and an appetite stimulant, and told me he could do well again (aside from the muscle wasting in his haunches) if I could get him to eat. I tried this on a whim because I knew he liked brothy food, and he loved it! He started eating like a horse, long after the appetite stimulant was history. He has maintained a healthy appetite, drinks plenty of water as well, and seems like a healthy cat again. He does have significantly reduced strength in his haunches due to the existing muscle loss, but he manages to get around very well anyway. This food has been a godsend for me. I supplement it with some expensive poached salmon and roasted chicken from Petsmart, but he by far prefers the Senior Lickables. At this point I will give him anything he wants to eat, but the bonus is that this food has extra supplements for older cats. It's not pure, organic, packaged by angels, but it's been great for my older cat so far. ** UPDATE: July 2, 2016 -- My beloved Mister Big lived a good long time after I wrote this and continued to enjoy eating this food even when he was at the end of his life. He licked up some of this food on his very last day, before he passed peacefully. Most cats will not eat when they are that sick, but Mister Big loved this food and would even lick the juice off of my fingers. I am very grateful for the pleasure it brought him, all the way to the very end of his life. Also, I thank all of you who have left such wonderfully supportive comments for me. It has meant a lot.
