Thanks but I did'nt ask about going to a vet, we've been to a vet he's on his last days, I would like him to eat....again the question is any suggestions on what he might like......
I see you edited this to add that your cat is on his last days...I am very sorry. You may still find that you can help your cat eat a bit by using onion-free baby food, that you put on your fingertip, and gently smear on your cat's tongue. Or, you can try getting some A/D - a prescription food from your vet that is soft and very high in calories and nutrients.
It may be, depending on what is wrong, that nothing at all will help, and then I hope you'll consider if it's time to help release your cat. Some diseases can cause such a lingering death, that it is far kinder, imo, to lovingly pts them.
I know that is a very personal decision, just wanted to suggest it may be time to consider it.
Generally speaking, fishy foods that are very strong in aroma go over well, some cats prefer plain boiled chicken, some will eat with catnip sprinkled atop their food...if your cat has mouth ulcers or bad teeth/gums, then a pureed food may be easier (and the baby food I mentioned).
Plain chicken broth (made without any onions or garlic) may also be appealing.
I am sorry, I am sure this is a very painful and difficult time,
