So Miss Luna had to go to the Vet again, we now have to try a Proteins free diet (if I spell that right) so no more chicken for her... :(
Let's hope it works...Luna is a trouble with food.

A protein-free diet for a carnivore? -?

That was my reaction. My cat squeaky may have the opposite problem. He started losing weight rapidly and lost a pound in just three weeks before the vet finally diagnosed his condition correctly. His ailment is very similar to Celiac disease found in humans. Celiac disease is an immune system disorder that is triggered by gluten in wheat and several other grains. Gluten is a plant protein that the immune system reacts to by destroying tiny cells in the lining in the small intestine thus preventing absorption of Nutrients into the bloodstream. The treatment was to give him prednisone. The prednisone stimulated his appetite which helped tremendously to give him energy. But then the prednisone caused him to develop diabetes. In retrospect, I think that the dosage for the prednisone should have been less, but his condition was so serious that he needed something drastic to turn his condition around. Now it is a balancing act ... the prednisone dose has been cut in half and we have bracketed the insulin injections that will hopefully keep his blood sugar within the normal range.

You might want to follow up with your vet about the protein intolerance in Luna. I have a feeling that ithe protein might be gluten and not animal protein that needs to be eliminated from Luna's diet. It is surprising how much wheat gluten is found in cat food, especially the dry cat food. I also found that their favorite foods have the greatest amounts of wheat gluten. Some cat food that doesn't have wheat gluten has corn gluten or starches such as potato starch. NOTE: I am using the American definitions of wheat and corn which are probably different than British English.

Thanks Bill, for Luna it is probably proteins from chicken, we have now started with an elimination diet. No let me say that correctly she is going to start. First thing is to get her to eat again. She also gets prednisone. And we stop with feeding anything Chicken.
She already eats grainfree food, as I would like them to eat raw, Yari is not having it Luna likes it more. She is a trouble eater but for now I bought things which she is aloud to eat.
So two days she can eat anything because she has to start eating (and she does) and than a chicken free diet. And if that is not it, we have to eliminate other things than can cause her to vomit because of that she stops to eat.
Thanks for your info hope squeaky will feel better soon too.

Cats are picky eaters. One day they will like one kind of food and the next they don't. Perhaps I should try some of their natural foods like lizards, mice, and birds. :rolleyes:

Wish you the best with Luna and her change of food.
Cats can sure be picky some times but to have to choose for them and the get them to eat is the hard part.

Good luck! Some cats are tough to handle with the food - mine is now on the C/D prescription diet (which he likes, fortunately), but before that...

He likes Friskies well enough, but when I learned how bad that was for him, I tried ALL the high-quality foods and the only one he'd eat was Dr Weil's Pet Promise. They stopped making that, and it was a mad rush to find something, anything, that he'd eat, and he again turned down all the high-quality, grain-free foods, but this time, at whole foods, I found Spot's Stew (salmon), which he liked. I think it still had chicken in it, even though the first ingredient was salmon meal, but that's one you could check in case I remember wrong (if you don't already have the right food lined up for her).

Thanks for the tip, we can't buy that here (can't help that I'm Dutch... :p). At the moment everything is good with Luna, I decided to give her some differend type of raw meat and fish and I keep my fingers crossed that it works.

misty66, I really hope that your cat gets better after being on a healthy raw meat and fish diet. All that canned stuff is maybe not good for her. I wouldn't want to live on it myself :) Good luck with your lovely kitty :)
