We have recently acquired a cat. This was not through choice: he is a local stray that has decided to come and live in our house and, despite trying to persuade him otherwise, it is clear he is here to stay. Having realised this, we felt obliged to start taking care of him including a trip to the vet for a check-up as we had noticed he was getting some lumps and bumps. The vet thinks that these are an allergic reaction (to what we are not sure). He was given some injections and is already looking better after just a couple of days. I am wondering whether the food we were feeding him may be responsible for the allergic reaction (it was just a supermarket brand of cat food). I have no experience of cats and am not sure how varied a cat’s diet needs to be with regard to different types of meat. The cat can’t have anything too hard as he has lost quite a few teeth (it is likely he has had a run in with a car in the past). I have tried giving him some of the dog’s raw minced meat but he turned his nose up at it; however, tinned tuna and cooked chicken (minced) have been a huge success. Any advice / suggestions would be welcome.
