when you can go out and get jars of baby food chicken, turkey, beef with no onion powder. Warm it to bring out the aroma. Mot cats LOVE that and will eat it.

In the meantime what do you have in the house that she is used to?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Just her dried food which all she will ever eat. I heated some chicken baby food but i had to force feed her and she took off after just a little bit

Did she eat any dry food or tuna?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No I still have to force feed her and she is on an antibiotic. It's very hard to get her because I am disabled and she is very quick. No one can get her ugh
Expert:  Terri replied 1 month ago.

The antibiotic should help after 4 doses.

Try warming the food again after she has had 2 days of meds. Sometimes the smell stimulates the appetite sensors in the brain.

Please keep me posted.
