Ricky Bobby has just refused wet for the first time! WHY? It's a brand and flavor he has always liked, By Nature organics Turkey & Liver. I got up to feed him and he ran to the kitchen like he always does and watched me serve him. I put it down for him to eat, he smelled it and just looked at me. Then "buried" it. I was so happy that I don't have a finicky eater. He's not bored, I give him a great variety of wet food to prevent boredom. He ate it this morning with no issues. *sigh* I'll leave it out for 20 minutes or so, then I'll try giving him another flavor. I'm sure it's not an issue of him not being hungry.

All four of mine will sometimes refuse something they previously scarfed up. Sometimes the refusal only lasts a couple of "tries" and sometimes I have to stop feeding whatever it is for weeks. Usually, but not always, they'll eat it again.

I *do* wish cats weren't so difficult about food!

It could be an 'off' can - maybe even just processed a little too much, or he's just off that variety for a while. Mine loved the little Nutro cans for over a year, suddenly hated them, so I had to try the big Nutro cans and a few other varieties, including the more superpremiums and others (they loathed Merrick) and now, two months later, just love the little Nutro cans again. Go figure.

I guess he just wasn't in the mood for turkey. Thank night I gave him another flavor, same brand but beef flavor. He scarfed it up. The next morning I gave him the rest of the turkey can I had open and he ate it fine! I have no idea what was going through his cute little head that night! lol

My guy does this all the time! He drives me nuts because things he "loves" one day, he won't touch another. He's too stubborn and I'm too much of a softie to force the issue. . . .
