Cat has kidney issue

She is not eating so we are trying to force her to eat.

Anyone encounter this? Any tips

Have you talked to your vet? What kind of "issues"? What are you trying to feed her (wet, dry, same as she was getting before, etc)?

First thing I'd try is amping up the volume on the smell/taste, as well as increasing hydration, which means finding some good old smelly wet food. But if your cat is in the end stages of kidney failure, you may need to switch focus on their quality of life, which is painful but necessary to consider.

There is a pretty active U.S. based forum that has food and feeding recommendations for cats with kidney disease.
