I need your help, /an/. My 12 year old cat recently had his first surgery, where he had two teeth pulled. He recovered nicely and is fine, but he refuses to eat. The dentist says his mouth is fine and theres no infection, and his bloodwork pre surgery was fine. The dentist said it was likely stress and that hed go back to normal, but its been three days since he ate regularly. We've been feeding him cat treats a couple times a day to sustain him, but how can I encourage him to get back to his regular eating routine?
He is out and about during the day, hes cuddly, hes begun communal bathing with his brother, hes 100% back to normal... Except hes not eating.
Please help me, /an/. I dont want my best friend getting sick.

Moths, as the clearly superior lepidopteran, require recognition and praise. So post your favourite moths, cute moths, creepy moths, cool moths or comely moths, and let us all rejoice in their furry splendour. This, for example, is the beautiful Deilephila Elpenor, or Elephant Hawk-Moth, which besides looking delicious, shimmers as it flies.

General funny pet stories
> It was Halloween, back in 2007
> My friends and I had just returned from trick-or-treating
> All in room, candy in piles on the floor, trading/eating said candy
> My cat Annie strolls in, she loves plastic bags and spots one
> Heading straight for it, she crawls inside and balls up
> I remember this one thing I do with her, not often but every once in awhile, and she actually sort of likes it
> I pick up the bag, grinning, and ask my friends if they'd like to see something funny
> They stare at me, bewildered, but agree
> I raise the bag up a bit, and make sure she's tucked inside the bag.
> I began a swinging motion, not heavy, just light enough to spin myself in a gentle circle and annie in the plastic bag.
> But it's right there, right then when I remembered there was a hole in this bag.
> Que slow motion
> Momentum built up, I was at the point of no return, I couldn't stop. My face revealed what was about to happen to one of my friends, they tried to grab the bag but it was too late, her fat ass already began tearing the hole
> Dear god.gif
> She got sucked through the widening hole, birthed into the air, still balled up. I tried to grab her, my friends flew back except for one poor soul, the one directly in her path.
> She slowly unfurled, it was momentarily beautiful actually
> Her limps began to spread in all directly, her eyes widened as she realized what was happening. She was on a collision course with my friend's face, and he was helpless/too fucking stupid to stop it.
> She attached to his face, full force, shoving his head back and into the wall causing a hole. She freaked out, but wouldn't let go
> We had to pry her off his face, she fell to the floor
> She went right back into the fucking bag
> Friend lying on floor, in pain, face bleeding
> Everyone dying from laughter, cat is cleaning her paws in a plastic bag behind me.
That friend never came back over, never spoke to me again. My friends never trusted me again
