A few years ago my now 19 yr old cat Squeaky stopped eating and hid under the bed. After a few days the vet kept her overnight on an IV, ran tests and unable to find anything wrong with her explained that when cats get ready to die they stop eating and hide. He wanted to keep her another night but I felt so helpless and desperate I took her home instead trying different things to get her to eat. That Sunday I power walked around the track at the gym for an hour praying so hard in between crying and when I left I stopped at a local pet store and found this product. It was high in nutrition and I knew she needed the taurine and calories soon or she would get a liver disease. I didn't think she would eat it but as soon as I got home, I squeezed some out and she lapped it up straight from the tube. A half hour later she was in the kitchen eating a can of cat food.

A few years have passed and although she has since gone deaf, she cries out for her JIT several times per day. She walks to the bedroom, cries out "NOW! NOW" over and over and waits for me to lift her up to her spot where she laps up as much of it as she wants. She did go through a spell for about 2 or 3 weeks a couple of years ago where she wouldn't eat it and we could see all the bones in her body. I feared God was ready to call her up to be Jesus' pillow cat. After a few weeks she decided she wanted it again. I truly believe this product sustains her and keeps her alive. Although she spends most of her time on a heating pad, she still likes to play on occasion and is fairly healthy. My youngest 2 yr old likes to clean up the tube after her and my 4 yr old likes it.

If you are considering this product, I would start with one tube if you haven't tried it yet. Not all cats like it.

I bought this product in the store -- but had to leave a review on AMAZON due to its amazing result.

My at-the-time 12 year old Persian Himalayan stopped eating, and kept tanking-up on water.

After x-rays we determined one kidney was dead, and only 1/3 of the other kidney was working. The vet subscribed the only answer available to them -- subcutaneous fluids. Most of you reading this probably already know what that means, but if you don't -- it's where you have to stick your animal on the back with a needle and allow a bag of fluids to drip down under the skin. This is done daily on up to once a week for animals with KIDNEY PROBLEMS, for the rest of the life of the animal.

I refused to do that. Did it with a rabbit of mine -- too awful for me to do again.

So - in desperation I went hunting through pet stores and found this.

I started squiring 4-5 rounds of 3 cc's into my cat, daily (a couple of hours in between each squirt), as it says "ideal for cats who are finicky, who are 'off food' or who require an additional source of energy." After 1 week of this daily regiment -- and squirting water into her mouth too as she had stopped drinking that as well -- she began eating on her own.

..

After a couple of weeks I decreased the regiment to one squirt daily.

Now - 3 years later - she only needs one squirt every 2-3 days. No meds. No subcutaneous fluids.

She's okay with the taste; the good news is she'll swallow it - and pretty much likes it - and will not go frothing-at-the-mouth as you well know how some horrible appetite-stimulating med's cause animals to do. This one not only stimulates appetite - it gives them a regiment of nutrients that keep their body going.

NutriCal was recommended by a vet for a week old, abandoned kitten. It stimulated her appetite. Unfortunately we lost the kitten to an infection shortly thereafter. We then decided to give it to one of our 15 year old cats that was losing weight. She HATES it. Then again, she hates anything that isn't cat food from a can or bag. We put it in a syringe and then squeeze it into her mouth. She acts like she has a mouthful of peanut butter. After about a hour we notice an increase in her appetite and activity level. We gave it to her daily for about a month and she started to put on some weight. We got overconfident and stopped the NutriCal only to see the weight drop off again as well as the activity level. Even though she doesn't like it, we are starting to feed it to her again. I look at it like the icky medicines I had to swallow as a kid. It wasn't fun, but it did the job. Putting up with the mess and protests are the least I can do for my friend. Conversely, my other 15 year old cat loves to lick the stuff from the tube (she also likes hairball medicine from the tube, cake, cookies, fritos, table scraps, ice cream, pizza and pasta), but she needs more poundage like she needs another tail! (We don't feed her all those items, but she can steal like a veteran politician!)

My little best friend is almost 15. As a kitten, she swallowed magnets (playing with those darn pics we all post on our fridge. Tell all you know - don't do that! Use a photo album or tape instead!) Ever since her little lifesaving surgery, she can only eat certain kibble and only 10 or so of them at a time, and each feeding spaced well enough apart. Any more, and she'll get sick.

Needless to say, she is always begging. She just doesn't understand her situation until it's too late. And then, well - it's too late for my carpet. Not to mention that she doesn't feel well afterwards.

She has been healthy as a horse otherwise until a scare a few months back. At the vet visit, she weighed in at a mere 5.5 lbs (runt of the litter, asian persuasion --not starvation by me). While she was deemed utterly healthy (and sweet :) by the vet (albeit, diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia --the probable reason for her 'unwellness moment' (see my Excel Glucosamine Cat Paste review)), I felt as though we could put a bit more weight on her to possibly help with her hips and all-around health... it couldn't hurt, she's so darn kitten-cute-small and wirey --and I'd sleep better at night.

Here's where Nutri-Cal came into play....
I'd spent at least an hour at the local big pet store reading tubes, canisters, you name it. I had to be careful in my final pick as it needed to be easy enough on her tummy. I ended up with 2 choices. I found one of the employees and asked her about the two (one being Nutri-Cal, the other some 'senior supplement). The minute she said that Nutri-Cal was recommended by vets -- my decision was made. She also added that anything 'senior-oriented' would not include good-for-you-fatty-type nutrition (if you're looking to add a bit of weight onto a cat).
