My old cat Whiskers (10 years) and his brother Rascal (but mostly whiskey) have been losing weight. They had worms, and were treated. (going back to vet this week to make sure they are gone) but lost a bit of weight. Were already slim cats, and because they are old, a little scrawny. They aren't very thin, between 11 and 13 pounds. But whiskers did lose a few pounds when he was lost about a week. (got worms and was lost in the care of my cousins while we were moving into a condo that doesnt allow pets) but my dad went up, found lost whiskers, and brought him and his brother rascal back to his new place that allows pets. Its not that Whiskers and Rascal aren't eating, its just that they are old and have been sick, and I want them to be plump and healthy for winter. ( dont want them to get sick) We keep them inside mostly all winter, they dont like snow anyway.) Is there any good food that will help them gain weight and will support their immune systems. Whiskers in particular need to put on some pounds and could use something that will make his coat provide him a little more warmth. Its pretty shaggy right now. I know this sounds like my cat is in poor shape, but really he is okay and not sick anymore. I am just overprotective and worried about him. my icon is a recent picture of him and as you can see he is fine and dandy. I just want him to put on a little weight from the small amount he lost. His brother too
Also, is there a way that I can get my old cats to have more fun? I am not going to let them out as much now that they are getting older, but is there something I can do to get them to have more fun and be happier? Anything that you as pet owners know cats love and help old cats. treats? games? toys? Whiskers and Rascal have had to deal with new additions to the family, have had three other cats brought into their home and a dog. but now they are just living with one other cat in their new home. (dog and other cat are with cousins temporarily) They deserve a calmer happier life especially since they have done alot of moving around and gone through some illness in the past year.
