refused to eat....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, guys, I need an advice from you!
When I just got Solomon, we only had dry food to feed him with- and he ate it perfectly. Then I bought him some canned food and also Wiskas choce bites and beef bites..something- it is the only one that was available for kittens that time. So, I gave that to my kitty and he ate it with pleasure, but from then he refused to eat dry food at all! He only will eat if it's canned!!!! Is it OK? I have no problem ( right now! ) with buying canned food, but should I give him some dry food till he'll get to used to eat it again! I thought also it might be tooo hard for him, and I drop some warm water drops in it- so all the food got real gentle and soft- he wouldn't eat it either...So, what should I do?

Feeding him canned is fine, some people believe it is better for them, and others believe it isn't. Leave out a small amount of dry food for him so he can nibble if he wants. Just as long as he is eating, you are staying ahead in the game.

But I did a little trick on my kitty..bad, bad, mommy Leeka!!!! I bought Wiskas cat milk and warmed it up a little bit and just put it on a dry food- oh, yammi, Solomon said and ate it all!!!!! So, now I can make his food different so he will not get too bored....
Also, on almost all wiskas food it said- great for kittens and for cats.... I am confused now- how can it be? I thought that food can be only for cats or for kittens.....

WHen I first got Dori I couldn't get her to eat the dry food either. I was trying to feed her Iams kitten chow (free feed) and also let her have the canned only in the mornings. For the first few weeks, she refused the dry. I assumed it was maybe because she was still young and had trouble chewing the dry food. I fed her the canned for a week or 2 more and then slowly started mixing in dry with the canned (similar to what your doing with the milk)after a while she ate the dry food when it was down and I started giving her canned mornings only. She has eaten that way ever since.

Feeding canned food only is fine. My Spyder has never eaten dry catfood...he won't even smell it! And he's doing just fine.
