I hope Mori is a picky eater

My 13 year old cat Mori has lost over a pound.  You can feel every verterbrae in his spine.  He'd let Psephe eat his food, so Psephe was getting fat.  He's the more dominant cat, so this seemed odd.  He was also eating very slowly.

So we took him to the vet.   The vet tested his blood and urine and gave him an exam.  $300 later the vet found nothing.

The next step would be searching for cancer.

Later we remember that Mori had lost weight before when we switched his cat food. Doh!

So I'm praying that Mori is just super picky in his old age and would rather get super thin than eat Evo.  Supposedly a better cat food, but not according to Mori.  We bought his old cat food again, Innova.

Last night Mori was eating bit more quickly. Psephe walked close to him and Mori squared his shoulders and Psephe didn't even try to eat his food. Go grumpy old man!
