Has any one had a cat who suffered from a food intolerance? What did you do for your kitty?

Stink gained weight when we moved last summer (no more fenced in patio to roam freely in)and tipped the scales at 10.5 lbs last Nov. For her frame, that was potbelly heavy. After the New Year's she started to throw up and lose weight. I was in the last days of my pregancy and the tension level in the house was high so I assumed it was stressed related.

A few weeks after the baby arrived Stink visually mellowed, but she would still spit up. It got worse, and several weeks ago she crashed - dropping down to 7 lbs. She is only 2 but looked 20.

The vet said the mostly likely cause was kidney failure, bloodwork showed nothing which wasn't surprising. A few days later she called back and said the fact Stink is only 2 bothered her. Her office cat has a food intolerance that mimicked kidney failure - what if Stink had the same?

We're on a two week plus two week trial. I stopped feeding premium food when Romeo died and went back to average food for average cats. Currently Stink is offered presription food daily. That doesn't mean she eats it.

Can anyone share their kitty tummy troubles?

Purrs,
Elizabeth
