So to put it simply-I'm watching my childhood cat
for about a week and essentially she is 17-18 years old.
She possibly has a brain tumor, she doesn't eat any food my mother gives her.
She was originally on food that was for her stomach but they haven't restocked it.
So my mom has been running around trying to find a food she likes and she basically turns her nose up to everything.

She literally nibbles on a bit of wet food each day.
I know that my major deals with animals and pets but I've been rushing around
trying to find homemade recipes that are cheap and that could be good for her.

So far I'm thinking of giving her a scrambled egg treat dish.

Then some boiled chicken that is torn up, with a bit of pureed pumpkin and rice.
Maybe put some flaxseed in there too.

But any other suggestions?
I know I can work with tuna just unsure of what I could mix with it.​

Salmon is really, really good for vitamins and essential fatty acids, some pet stores sell cans of just straight salmon in the dog or cat food isle. Otherwise you can buy canned salmon at the store, but check the ingredients first to make sure there's nothing weird added.

Also if you need a food suggestion, there's a brand called Nulo that is incredible.
Thanks! I'll keep this in mind when I'm shopping tomorrow for her!

Also a final suggestion is to maybe consider a CBD supplement (available at pet stores or online) to help with comfort and appetite.
