Unhappy Diet for old sickly cat

I've been caring for a stray tomcat for a long time since it was little. It would visit almost on a daily basis and sleep a lot but then it started taking prolonged leaves of absence until eventually it got so claustrophobic that it resumed to random encounters when I would take it in my arms (once it would follow me enthusiastically but no protest) and take it home but usually it would head to the door after eating. Lately it is a frequent guest again but it has become thin and weak and it has a poor appetite besides drinking a lot of milk. I know what to feed it to make sure it eats but I'm concerned whether elevated cholesterol, triglycerides and stuff could only worsen its frail health. I'm reluctant to take it to a veterinary for now as I don't want to frighten it into avoiding me.

Your cat is old and you need to take precaution that she doesn't eat anything bad. You should go through this article (petsgroomingtips.com/food-advice-for-your-aged-cat. It is about the diet plan you should make for your senior cat.

There's a good article at KittyCatter, that talks about the best food for senior cats. That's where I found how to take care of my last cat and it made me realize I was feeding her crap sorry to say.

Ohhh sorry to hear that. Better take your cat to a vet. Prevention is better than cure.

I'm new here but your post intrigued me. You are so kind to be caring for the cat with such concern. How is everything going?

It is good you have switched her to wet, as wet is easier for an aging to cat to digest.
