In the house of ancient animals

Footie, our 17 year old grumpy tabby cat (he's the short haired one) has been diagnosed with kidney failure.  Apparently kidney failure goes in stages, 1-4, and Footie is at Stage 3.   Fortunately, we don't have to try to get daily pills into him (getting pills into Footie is an extreme sport).  He will need a prescription food, but he's quite an enthusiastic eater, so I hope that will not be a big problem.
