When she developed kidney disease our elderly cat was given cat food specially for cats with "anorexia" but that was simple anorexia as in loss of appetite, not "anorexia nervosa" which, to my humble mind still covers a whole spectrum of cause and effect even before you add in other forms of human eating disorder.

But it's true, very few cats have body image issues. Even Pansy who is too stupid to sit on a wall without falling off, knows that she is lovely.

On the other hand I'd still trust our vet to diagnose and treat any eating disorder feline or human over at least 75% of the doctors round here.

At least "need for control" isn't listed as a reason.

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
