Hello, Margaret and welcome!My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you and Jai today.I need to ask you a few questions to get a better idea of the situation before I send you my complete answer. After you reply, please allow me a short while to compose, type and send your answer. Thanks!When did the howling first start?Is Jai neutered?Is he eating, drinking and eliminating as usual?Is his behavior normal?Does he seem to be in pain anywhere on his body?Does he spend any time outdoors?Thanks for all your additional detail.Cher
Yes he is neutered and I can't say exactly when he started to howl but he has been doing it for some time. He is eating etc. but I have had to change his diet to vet's food recommendation because he is having kidney problems. His behavior is normal and he does not appear to be in any pain.
When he was younger he used to be outside a lot as were all my cats but they are nor kept indoors and have been for some years.By the way his age is 16-17 yrs.
Jai is much better now thanks. I have worked out a feeding plan for him and he seems to be getting along alright. Thank you very much for your help and if I need any more help I will get in touch.
