The problem of the unhungry cat

Checkers, short for Chubby Checkers, is my love Barbara’s cat. As such he has come to live with us too. Mostly black with white socks and a partially white face he’s a very loving animal.

Problem is he won’t eat. Force fed he throws it up. Drinks water so he’s hydrated. Just won’t eat. Has lost three pounds in a week, down from 17 to 14. Still chubby. Has a drooping big belly. Got to fill it with something besides water. Got to.

UPDATE:  He’s eating! Could the solution have been as simple as switching a plastic food bowl for a ceramic one? Cats abhor change and Checkers has had plenty lately.
