Thanks for the replies. Jamie is a neutered male, and will be four on April 28th. Oddly enough, he insists on new foods - he will eat something for approximately 3 months, and then refuses to eat it for another 2 or 3 months. He won't eat the same brand more than twice a week, so I always have 3 or 4 different brands of dry food open, and have to sort the canned food so that he doesn't get the same brand & flavor more than twice a week. I've tried warming up his food, garlic powder, adding dried fish, and so on. He doesn't like RC, although that was the first brand I gave him after I brought him home (he got Whiskas for kittens before that). He "supervises" me when I'm filling his bowl, and for some reason he has totally ruled out pouches and cans that contain more than 3 ounces. If I fill his bowl when he's not in the room, he won't even sniff at the contents. He won't eat poultry unless it is mixed with fish (I worry about heavy metals), and doesn't like any canned food that has more than a 1.5% fat content. During shedding season he gets dandruff, and I've had to give him supplements because he's not ingesting enough fat. I give him lactose-reduced cat milk every day, which seems to help. He's not underweight (he weighs c. 13 lbs.), and I don't have a problem with his eating patterns, but my husband and our catsitter do. It would be easy to just give him premium dry foods, but I worry about urinary tract problems. The funny thing is that his littermates all love poultry and won't eat fish, and most of them will only eat canned cat food. His only sister is actually allergic to fish.
