With Gerogie, since he is terminal, the vet told me to allow him to eat anything he wants so long as he will eat it (the cancer burns up the calories and he loses weight even when he is eating). So the goal is to stuff him as often as possible with ANYTHING that I can entice him to eat. This has resulted in trying a wide variety of foods that normally, I would not try. So far, the hands down winner has been Royal Canin Recovery diet - at $1.69 per 6oz can. And Fried chicken livers. I am frying chicken livers - for my cat. Fried emu, too. (while the dogs look on enviously licking their lips whining: Mine! Mine!) He also likes live minnows. He wants me to drop them on the floor so that he can watch them flop a bit before he eats them. He will NOT eat them out of a bowl. It is odd to make a trip to the bait house every single day to purchase 1/2 dozen small minnows - but I do it - because I love him. We all do what we can for them - because we love them. Our children with fur.
