A number of different medical conditions may be the cause of your cat’s loss of appetite. Always speak with your veterinarian if your cat has a decrease in appetite. Cats can become very sick, very quickly if they stop eating.
If your vet determines there are no medical issues contributing to the loss of appetite, stress may be the culprit.
There are a number of ways in which stress can affect your cat's appetite.
Visit your vet immediately any time your cat has a significant decrease in appetite. Cats can become very ill, very quickly if they stop eating.
Give each cat in your household its own separate eating and drinking area to help avoid stress caused by having to share its food or water with other cats.
See tips for promoting harmony in multi-cat households to help reduce potential conflict and competition for resources (food, water, etc) between cats.
Plug in a Feliway Diffuser in the room where your cat spends most of their time to help comfort and reassure them.
Apply Feliway Spray to your cat’s resting and hiding areas daily for additional, targeted support.
