Feeding Dried Food

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Indie won't eat dried food. he was eating dried food when i got him but was not eating the first two days I bought him home as I think he was missing his family. I tried to entice him with wet canned food adn he loved it. Now he won't eat dried food and I want to get him back to a mix of both. Can I mix them both in the same bowl?

Sure you can.....it is a little more labor for you. Alot of cat owners mix their foods in the same bowl like this.

Thanks! That will be useful. I will be leaving him alone all day come September (he will be 4 months old by then) and I would like to get him eating dried food by then.

I read it is better for kittens to have food available all day. However, when can I start timing his feeds so that he knows when he will get fed?

Just put a bowl of dry food down all day long for "free choice", and feed the mix of wet and dry down 2-3 times a day. Don't keep the wet down for more than a couple of hours at a time as it spoils quicker.

I just gave him some mixed and he seemed keen on it although he had a few problems crunching the tiny biscuits, it was funny to watch.

You might also want to try a different dry food so that you can free feed. It took me about 6 brands before I found a food that Harry liked. I ended up feeding him Royal Canin formula for sensitive cats.

Yes I will be swopping foods to find the right now. I don't think wehave that kind here though.

Try to find a kitten food that has NO "by-products" while reading the label. This is more healthy for Indie. It may cost more money, but is worth it in the long run. Good luck with your kitten.

here is one - it's called Life's Abundance and my Loki, who is very very picky, loves it.

the web site is:


It does NOT contain corn, wheat, dairy, by-products, artificial colors or flavors found in other leading brands.
