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.
