It's strange that I didn't notice how pale his gums were until I saw them pink  ;D
Tonight he is back to his old ways with his head in the bowl before I can empty the pouch  ;D ;D
Shame it's not h/d food but it's food  ;D

Y es I thought that it does sound like he must have been anaemic.

That's brilliant news Mark, am so pleased for you both  ;D  Definately worth mentioning to the vet about his gums being noticably pinker, he may have been slightly anaemic before.

That's not to say he eats it all! - he is very selective, sometimes he justs licks the gravy, other times he will lick the bowl clean (he hadn't done that for a long time until this week) After having roast chicken yesterday, he won't eat at all today but I think he is playing me  ;D

Anyway, it's there if he wants it - I know that he can't have chicken all the time.

Clapton said thanks for all the good wishes

His fur is finally growing back so it's a shame they will have to shave him again for bloods  :(

Aww, fingers crossed that the vet is happy with him next month and that his bloods show some sign of improvement. That does sound like an awful lot of food though - did the vet check his thyroid?
Please spay your cat

Fortekor finally working after 2 months?

Clapton was diagnosed with moderate CRF about 2 months ago and prescribed Fortekor and a prescription diet. He refuses to eat the food but he will eat Whiskas senior. I have been getting worried that he isn't his old self and very nervous. Over the last few days he has improved a lot and something I didn't notice before but his gums are a lot pinker. He is due for bloods in about a month so fingers crossed, it is under control. Is it normal for improvement to take this long? -  I can't believe the difference in him - he is back to chasing leaves in the garden and has discovered the joys of skidding around our new wood floor!!  ;D (and back to eating 5-6 pouches a day + chicken and fish!!)
