FLUTD Diet, Need Advice

Smokey, my 4 1/2 year old blue tabby has been suffering from FLUTD for the past 6+ months. He's always been high strung, and has the more complicated form of FLUTD, with both types of urinary tact "crystals". He's been on a diet of Hill's Science Diet C/D for the past 2 months (per vet's instructions). The problem is that he is still losing weight and doesn't like the C/D canned. I've tried diluting with water, adding chicken or turkey baby food, microwaving the food for a few seconds to warm it up. He's gone from a robust 16 pounds down to about 7 1/2 pounds. The vet, who treats all of my animals, told me the outlook with this type of FLUTD is not good, but I'm not ready to give up on my boy yet. I'm desperate for any suggestions to get this poor boy eating well.

anytime

Before my sweet kitty passed away they had her on a science diet due to all her medical complication (she had FIP) and she hated it, she lost so much weight, so I talked to the vet, explained it all...and then we decided to switch her to a different food...I know it won't be that easy for you since your cats needs are so different, but maybe try talking to the vet and see if there is any alternative
