Why do cats lose their appetite?

Cats not eating can have either a medical or an emotional cause. Check with your veterinarian for medical issues.

Cats usually eat less when they feel disturbed.

Many things may conflict with your cat’s natural need for stability, such as:

  • Travelling upsets your cat’s routine which might cause them to avoid eating for a time.
  • Changes in the home can disturb cats as it causes disorientation (new furniture, redecorating...)
  • Cats can take a long time to adjust to new types of food. A recent change in diet could explain why your cat becomes picky with food.
  • Competition with other cats for food or water can keep your cat away from its food bowl or the presence of a dog.

Using FELIWAY CLASSIC Diffuser will help keep your cat feeling comfortable and get back to eating normally again.
