I have a very old, very thin cat. He's about 14 years old, and he's been to the vet. He had a few battles with cancer, but that's been taken care of. The vet feels something in his belly, either an intestinal mass or lymphoma, both aren't really worth treating at his age because it's either (chemo) too traumatic, or (surgery) just wont buy him much more time anyway.
he's still drinking, still grooming, but weak. he doesn't have much of an appetite. i bought high fat, high calorie special food for him, but he's still not interested.
i'm going to try mixing it with ground beef (his favorite) but is there anything else i can give him? i want to keep him comfortable (and give him a LITTLE more strength and energy via calories) so other than things like ground beef, and the food from the vet.. is there anything else high calorie and high fat i can give him? is it safe to give him cream or half&half... will cats eat egg yolks? any other suggestions. sometimes when my dad cooks he'll save the grease from the meat, so maybe we can pour some of that in his food....
any suggestions? anything that an old kitty even with no appetite really can't turn down?
