I bought some baby food for Kami to entice her on the days she's not really eating. Usually, if I give her something she likes it gets her started, but I really don't want to give her people food. I bought just one small jar of turkey to make sure she liked it and then I could have some on hand, but then I got to wondering if it was good for her with the CRF too much protein. I thought I'd ask here before calling her old vet in CA. We haven't spotted a new clinic we like yet.

Make sure there are no onions in the food.

Nope, no onions. Looks like turkey pudding. Blech!
If a CRF cats isn't eating, baby food meat is better than nothing. Another thing to try is Hills Prescription diet a/d.

She laready is supposed to eat k/d, but she won't touch the wet food, and uses the dry for nibbles. She eats the Science Diet senior food with the vet's blessing. Has been doing great on it since diagnosed just over 2 years ago. We still aren't on sub-q, but will probably start when I pick a new vet. All I'm finding are little storefront people with only 9-5 M-F hours. I'd like to have some that go a little later in the day or are open on Saturdays.
Anyway, I bought the jar of baby food on impulse because it was on sale and I was thinking about it. She reallylikes it. No dummy. Emotion: smile
My rule of thumb is to have the cat eat something, even baby food. I wouldn't make it a daily thing, though. I fed my CRF kitty baby food when he wouldn't eat his regular food.

Have you tried the new "minced" K/D? It only comes in the small cans, but Jacob LOOOOVES it. He likes the pasty, goopy "pate" style too, but not nearly as much as the minced. If you've not tried it, give it a shot.

Forget the pate, it's made mostly of liver and she HATES liver and HATE pate. I bought a can of the minced when it first came out and she liked it initially, but wouldn't eat the leftovers. She likes chunks and gravy sucks out all the gravy first and comes back to nibble the chunks throughout the day. Ground or minced varieties don't have the same appeal.
That "turkey pudding," though. She's in love and even pouted for a while before eating her dinner thinking she could guilt me into more. I guess it's like nice firm gravy or something.
BTW, is there really baby food with onions in it? Why?

Yes. In fact, I had to look a several jars of various baby food meats before finding a couple of onion-fee ones for my cat. Why onions are in there, I don't know, myself.
