Bella eating problems

Sean

Well she has picked this time to play 3 year old child and not eat
anything other than kibble. She walked away from the beef and the chicken.
She still tried to get into the fridge and "find" something and that is normal.

My question should I just let her not eat and not up the kibble to offset
the less meat that she is not eating?


Thanks

Sean have you tried rabbit? Or duck or something else like stella and chewy's, etc?

If you want her to eat more raw, then yes like Paige says try other types of meat. All of my cats love rabbit while only some like chicken or will eat beef.

but if she continues then yes, I would increase the kibble you offer to offset this, or find a canned food she likes...

Some cats just don't like raw, and there's not a lot you can do about it. Sometimes sprinkling the crumbs from freeze dried chicken over it will get a cat to sample the food and realize that it's not so bad after all...

I agree with Patti, I think when choosing our cats' diets... it ends up being a compromise between what we think is healthiest and what they will actually eat.
