Poor little Lilly, it does sound like she may have a pain issue. Hope the med helps!

The vet on the mountain (I liked her!) said she has a lot of arthritis in her back and her knees.  I need to take her to the vet again and get something for that.  She was much better on the Tramdeel.

I know someone whose elderly cat is on gabapentin transdermal daily for arthritis. They feel it helps her a lot. So that is another option that is out there for Miss Lilly if needed.

My old guy was on Onsior daily for over a year and he did very well on that.  No sedation, good pain relief.

She is feeling better, thanks everyone.  I'm sure it was the arthritis.  As soon as that chain of storms passed, she began to be herself again.

So, I think I figured out the spontaneous vomit!  She throws up the shredded food, but not the puree food!

Now that I have made that connection (why did it take so long?), I can feed her more appropriately.

That's a great discovery!

Fri isn't able to stomach shredded chicken or tuna unless it is served at dinnertime. 

I'm so glad you found the connection!

If you don't have a mini food processor , they work great to turn cans of shreds into pate . Glad you figured it out !

Miss Lilly has slowed down.  She is no longer able to get up on the counters, so she has not been eating anything other than brown packing paper and carboard boxes that I have not put in her bowl. 

She is a complete love bug, enjoys hogging my pillow and sleeping beside me.  When I come home, I find her in my chair or on the cardboard bolster of the Big Baby jr. bed.
 
She is almost 10 lbs, and totally a butter ball.   Kiss

Merrihart, have you considered supplements such as Senioraid gel for Miss Lily?

https://www.viovet.co.uk/Senior-Aid-Nutritional-Support/c1501/?sct_t=1526620497&sct_q=senior+aid+gel&sct_r=1#subtab-extra_info_2

I use this for Mitzie, and it seems to be useful. I also started Sophie preventively on it since she will be 12 this summer, and ragdolls as big cats are more prone to arthritis. Mitzie likes the taste, Sophie hates it so can't really comment on palatability but it seems to help.
