Several years ago the Chinese sold Melamine to American Pet Food companies as a protein. Cats started dying all over the USA. Certain companies admitted to using the Melamine. Fancy Feast did not. I fed my cat FF. She got really sick. Projectile Upchucking. Took her to vet. He did $160 tests and said nothing wrong with her. The next day the problem announced all over USA. I aM SURE the vet knew what the problem was but saw dollar signs. Dog came down with same thing. I had to cook chicken for them for over a year but eventually ok. The dog lived to 17 yrs old. Cat is now 13. Cat started getting sick again. Projectile vomiting, hair loss, eating 5 cans of FF per 24 hr day. Lost from 10 lbs to 6 lbs. Rack of bones. Took her to vet $145 tests. Vet said Liver disease. Special diet and Denamaren daily. Didn't work; Every time I gave her Denamaren, she vomited so dropped it. I went online and looked up symptoms not disease. Looked to be Hyperthyroidism. Said she needed High protein food. I went online and looked up all brands cat food. Believe it or not, FF is the highest protein on market. Turkey and tuna the highest, then chicken, so I changed her diet. She started gaining weight, hair got glossy and smoothed out. Back to vet he couldn't believe she was gaining weight, but said keep doing what I was doing. He said when the liver gives out her stomach will start swelling up and by then it will be too late to save her and will be in pain, so put her down (she must have both Liver disease and Hyperthyroidism brom the Melamine- Thank you China) She has spates of projectile vomiting and losing weight. Weight gets to about 8 lbs and then back down to 6 lbs. I don't know what keeps her alive except pure love. I will not put her down unless she is in pain. She will die at home where she is loved. Good luck with your cat.
