Why I think my kitty isn't eating: He is eating now. But he quit eating in the summer. I think it was because he got really sick with a cold and couldn't smell. But he had already lost so much weight and had a sporadic appetite. So the vet said we should put a feeding tube in before he loses any more ground.
