We WERE feeding him Max cat dry food and once a day wet Wellness cat food. (which is grain free) the vet gave us some Royal Canin to feed to him it's a high calorie food. We never feed him fish flavored food, makes there poop stink worse. The vet says he will never be able to eat dry food again. He has two water dishes at this time we did have one of those fountains, we got from a garage sale but it made a lot of noise, so I took it down. I should get a nice one made of stainless steel. I will try the Aloe juice, will go to the the natural food store and get it in the morning. Thanks for the tips. We are trying everything we can right now.
