I agree to a point as cats CAN tell that something is not quite right- but Da Lip, aka His Royal Hairiness, does have problems eating certain styles of food - he just cannot manage large kibble or large chunks of tinned food. You see, when I got Da Lip as a bitty kitty, he had a huge scab where his bottom lip used to be, and he was fed watered down tinned food so he could lap it up at first, then graduated to regular paste style until I wised up and realised a cat NEEDS that bottom lip to eat without making a huge mess. Found shreds and gravy and started him on that because it had the smallest pieces of food andI tried everything including premium chunks and gravym the operative word being chunks, huge chunks. If he gets the same flavour two days in a row, the third day it becomes poison and he walks around yowling, and for some reason, I find bits of chewed and spit out kibble in my shoes.......nah, he aint spoilt much!!!LOL He is also 8 this fall and healthy and if I am careful about what I feed, he is also happy. For the record, he also considers Fancy Feast to be poisonous as the only flavour I could find when they had the intro offer was salmon, and he hates fish. Nope, not spoilt at all, is he??
