What to feed cats when out of food

When you’re out of cat food, don't try to soothe your cat with treats or empty food bowls. If you find your cat hungry, rush him to the veterinarian.

If your cat is not eating, you can keep him alive for a few days by offering him small amounts of water, broth, and canned food. Dump a small amount of broth in the water dish and offer him a small amount of canned food.

If you can’t make it back to the veterinarian for a few days, try feeding him a little water, broth and canned food.
