My Smeller Has Let Me Down

favs

Some of my foods I don’t like so I pick it out and leave it on the counter. Mumsy leaves it in the bowl to get me to eat. She says it stinks and my smeller don’t work like it did when I was younger.

I don’t eat if I can’t smell the food so Mumsy has to find me stinky foods. She also has to change my food often, I tire of the same food after a time. She rotates some of it but she mostly has to keep looking for something I will eat.

Do any of you have a smell issue that keeps you from wanting to eat?

    1. We are trying different foods and will update soon on how I am doing. We have tried Royal Canin but not the Vet foods. I would not eat any of the Royal Canin we tried.

      Mumsy says we are making some progress and she is hoping I will eat more each day and not stop after a few days like I have been doing for the past year and a half. Love and hugs

  2. Oh dear Mumsy, what will you do? Can you mix a little of the type of meat your shug fed Pooh with chicken, all mushed up together and decrease the amount of of process meat little by little. Maybe, you’re right, Pooh still misses your shug and the food he fed him. Poor Pooh.

    I’m doing well but I still mis my daughter a lot. It hits me once in a while. We were expecting her to visit a while this summer and it will be difficult as we were so looking forward to having her with us for a week. I hope that you are adjusting well and that you’re are in good health.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. I’ll eat anything that doesn’t eat me first. Since I’m blind, I can’t see my food, but my taster works just fine! BOL

    Thank you for all the POTP for my sissy, Holly. She’s doing so much better since the surgery and even her liver is getting better. POTP sure is powerful!

  4. My smeller works okay but I have become a very picky eater over the past 3 years. My mum despairs sometimes at trying to get me to eat. When she does find something I like I will eat only that and nothing else. Then I get tired of it and she has to start all over again to find something that I will eat.

  5. Dat’s not good gawjus. You have to eat. Sis Lexi got really picky, and mommy tried everythin’ she could find. She would sometimes add Gerber ham baby food, which is by da way, delishus. We eat freeze dried raw, so it doesn’t really smell dat much, but we like it and so we eat it. Your mommy might try a tad of tuna water, low sodium chicken broth, freeze dried livers, or fresh, ifin you’ll eat ’em. But just a little cuz ya’ don’t wanna unbalance your vitamin and mineral intake. Dat would apply to any supplement tho’. Maybe some probiotics, we use somethin’ called Pro Bios we get from Chewy. It makes things taste better. Another thing mommy does ifin we don’t seem to wanna eat is puts some in our mouth so we know dat it tastes good even ifin our sniffer’s off. When Raena joined our furmily, she had a cold and couldn’t smell anythin’, so mommy would offen have to put a few bites in her mouth furst. We’re sendin’ purrayers. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

    1. A spoon would not make any difference with me. It is all about the food no matter what it is in. If it don’t smell stinky and taste just right then I turn up my nose and walk off. Mumsy is still trying and will not give up on finding something I will eat.

  7. freeze dried green beef tripe. Available through Raw Paws Pet Food. The Kid Sage and I like having this added to our food because of the SMELL and it tastes good too! Mom L smashed up the freezed dried bites into something like a salt look then sprinkles it over our food. Worth a try

    1. Thank you, we will check that out. Mumsy says with the luck she is having I would probably lick it off and leave the food. She is going to keep looking and trying things though….surely there is something out there that I will like and eat.

  8. You are so lucky Mumsy keeps bringing you new things to try. Poor ole Minnie just gets the same ole kibble everyday. Not knowing any different, she eats quite well.

    1. For many years I ate like Minnie does. But now I am very picky and don’t want to eat cat food at all. We are happy that Minnie eats her kibble and does well. Mumsy hopes she can find something that I will like and eat well again.

    1. Thank you, Mumsy heated it for me this morning and I ate a little more than usual. She has ordered some toppers to see if they will work. I have stopped eating fish but Mumsy puts fish flavored food in my kibble so I can smell it. I take it out of the bowl and eat a little of the other kibble. The only wet food I will touch now is chicken and I eat very little of it. She is going to get me salmon and ocean fish and see if I will eat it heated. We so appreciate your suggestions.

  10. LOL-Picky Pooh! So far, Bella and Daisy have their keen sense of smell. As old as Goober got, he always had a good sniffer. Now, on the other hand, I have lost some of my hearing, taste, and smell. They just aren’t what they used to be. I admit to not letting that get in the way of my appetite-LOL Hugs sweet, Sis and nose kisses for sweet Chancy Man and Pooh ❤ Thank you for bringing cheer and smiles to my day! Love ya!

    1. It has just come to mind that the whole problem may be because my Shug let her eat what she wanted of what he was eating. He was a big meat eater and I am not. He ate wieners, Spam, vienna sausage or bologna every evening before bed for many years. I like her to have a balanced diet for cats and not just meat that people eat. I am not making much progress achieving this though.
      She is a mess and I have to laugh at her picking that food out of the bowl. I pick it up and put it back in the bowl. lol

      Sis, I think our taste and smell issues we can blame on allergies. Our hearing loss I guess comes with aging. Love and hugs ❤

    1. I am not fond of fish, I will eat salmon or tuna once in awhile. I really only like chicken and it is not stinky. I will eat people chicken but Mumsy knows that chicken alone does not give me a balanced diet. I ate Fancy Feast for awhile but now will not touch it. Mumsy says I am being a real pain in the pootookus!

      We are going to try the suggestions our friends are offering and hope some or at least one of them works. She is losing weight because she is so picky.
