Pets react differently to changing environments, dietary patterns, seasons, etc. Some of them become lethargic or too active, aggressive or affectionate. But if the cat does not eat for no apparent reason for a long time, then this may be a symptom of a serious illness.
A healthy cat is distinguished by radiance in the eyes, a shiny coat and excellent appetite. The fact that the cat refuses to eat for 24 hours or more may be cause for concern. Such behavior of a pet often indicates the development of such diseases as: • A viral infection that dulls the cat's sense of smell and taste buds. • Disruption of the gastrointestinal tract. • The presence of a foreign body in the pet's stomach. Its presence is confirmed by constant vomiting and simultaneous constipation. • Internal bleeding caused by a traffic accident or falling from a great height. • Kidney failure. • Cancer. • Inflammation of internal organs. • Diseases of the blood and genitourinary system. To avoid complications., the cat should be shown to the veterinarian. Carefully follow all the recommendations of a specialist, and then your pet will recover faster, but not always refusal to eat is the cause of serious health problems for your pet. Loss of appetite in a cat (anorexia) may be due to a stressful condition caused by visiting a veterinary clinic, the arrival of a large group of friends, or harassment from another resident of the apartment (a dog). In this case, the cat chooses fasting as a protest. How to restore the cat's appetite Often times when the cat refuses to eat, are temporary. The proper care and attention of the owner will help to restore his appetite. Try to change the food in the pet's bowl more often, diversify it. Cats are finicky and will not eat the same food for long periods of time, so the pet should be comfortable indoors. If he is confused by the noise and fuss that accompanies the arrival of guests, then move his bowl to a quiet place for a while. There he can calm down and eat.
