Excess dry food can cause renal failure and feline leukemia is also a possibility especially if it has been in contact with feral cats or their fluids, etc.
If it is a long haired cat that grooms itself extensively it could have lost appetite due to a stuck hairball.

Some cats do lose appetite when the scent of mating is in the air and can lose weight. If your cat won't eat for several days and loses considerable weight and nothing will tempt it to eat you should take it to the vet. If it doesn't drink then take it urgently.

Problems with dogs eating cat food

The following is advice from the ASPCA
Cat food is higher in protein and fat, which may make it very palatable to dogs, but if you continue to feed your dog only cat food, over time you'll begin to see nutritional imbalances. It's also possible to see gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting and diarrhea, in dogs who continually eat cat food.

All of a sudden my cat won't touch this food. he is 5 years old, and has been eating it with no problem. He usually bolts it down with no problems, but now the food remains in his dish for days an

If he's been eating this food in the past, is it a new bag? Maybe it's not fresh or this bag tastes a bit off? If the Vet didn't have any suggestions, I'd consider returning the bag to the pet store, explaining the situation, and trying another brand. If it isn't a health thing it's a mental thing, so maybe try wet food for a while and then ease him into a different dry food to see if that breaks the mental block that seems to be occurring?

How come when I try to give my friend's cat rice and potatoes he won't eat it?

Cats are obligate carnivores, which means their natural diet is strictly raw meat ONLY. Cats biologically need the complete amino acid chain that is supplied in animal protein. Vegetables have amino acids but are missing certain parts, dogs and humans have the biological ability to synthesize the missing amino acid in vivo but cats can not. So long story short, no vegetables are not good for cats.

How much water should a cat drink in a day?

The amount of wateryou give your cat depends on his diet. If your cat eats mainly dry food, thenhe would need more water than cats that eat wet food (canned) or raw food. Inany case, you should always have water available for your cat so it does notdehydrate.

What shouldn't I give my cat to eat?

Onions are particularly bad for cats as they break down the cat's red blood cells, the same goes with garlic and chives. Milk is also not good for cat's especially adult cats as their digestive system cannot cope with dairy products.
