What can i feed my elderly cat to gain weight

My elderly cat is constantly losing weight, she is now about 4 1/2 pounds. I am afraid she will get sick if she doesn't gain some weight by the time the winter comes. I feed her a high quality dry cat food with no high carbs or carbohydrates. I am currently feeding her Blue Buffalo Wilderness, but i'm running out of it. I really need a suggestion for a good food for her to gain some weight. I can't afford to get her a food with high carbs. Also, she has a sensitive stomach and i am afraid she will greatly dislike any kind of food with high carbs. I was hoping to hear from some pet food expert, so here is her picture. Thanks!


Cat Food For Weight Gain

Here's the best food I have found. It's a natural food, made by a company in South Africa. It's called Natural Balance, and you can get it at Petco. It's not cheap, but it is the best food I have found. I feed my cat Natural Balance, and she is healthy, happy, and loves it. I have a long haired cat, and she won't eat any other food, so I know it's good.

Blue buffalo is good but it has a lot of grains and I don't think it's good for your cat. I feed my cat to much. I think it's good for cats but not for yours. (15/11/2009)

I have a cat with a sensitive stomach and I would not feed her another food with grains. I feed her a high quality food with no grain, it's called the Royal Canin and you can find it at Petco or PetSmart. (16/11/2009)

I would suggest going to PetSmart and asking them to recommend a good food for your cat. They have a lot of vets that have worked with cats and I have heard that they have good suggestions. (16/11/2009)

How many pounds of a cat food do you feed your cat? My cat weighs about 10 pounds. I am feeding her Blue Buffalo Wilderness but it only contains about 8% protein. I think she should be eating closer to 15%.

While there are certainly some higher and lower quality pet foods out there, there are a LOT of misconceptions about what is and is not bad for your pet. Of course, everyone's pet is different, and you should feed what works for you! But don't demonize people who feed Fido Royal Canin or Hill's or Purina as bad pet owners and accept this new trend for what it is - great marketing! Read more

That is not to say that a cat doesn’t want to have any, in fact, there are frisky kittens out there, and they have their own kind of fun too. But sometimes you want to play with cats, and all they want to do is to just nap. Most doggies love to play, and they crave for interactive play with their owners. Read more

Basically wild cats only eat meat, but cats as pets could eat vegetables as well but make sure you just give a small portion. In terms of dry food, many dry foods cointain more than vegetables than protein (meat). If you give dry food to your cats, I suggest to mix them with the protein (fish, meat, egg) to balance the nutrition. Read more
