My Cats Have Gone Off Their Food
by Sarah - Registered Cat Breeder
In the last two months I have started feeding my cats days old chicks (not live I might add) as part of their raw combo diet. Every cat I have absolutely loved these tasty morsels and all of them seemed exceptionally hungry all the time.
Then for no apparent reason they seem to start being sick and throwing up a greasy yellow bile and going completely off their food for just over a week. I have managed to coax them back to normalish eating patterns by offering cooked chicken and top quality kibble and finally seem back on track.
This happens around the time of season change summer into autumn and winter into spring every year and I wonder... is it a bit of a case of cat S.A.D. disorder or do they just need to rest and cleanse out their systems with a bit of a detox once in awhile?
Can you please recommend a homeopathic remedy to help the appetite pick back up? Even thougj I am not at all worried about the majority of my adult cats, I have one mum who is nursing 3 week old kittens and is barely eating at all at the moment and I would like to aide her back to her normal healthy appetite ASAP.
