Cat stopped eating wet food

Bericht door tdh10 » 18 jun 2019 09:50

3 year old, fixed male. Very healthy. Huge appetite. We feed dry food (Purina One) in the morning, and a can of Friskies in the evening. He LOVES it all, and always wants more, but we measure his servings, and his weight is stable at 11#. Very suddenly, he has STOPPED eating his canned food. Barely touches it. He doesn't whine for more food. He just mostly ignores it, and wolfs down his dry food in the morning. Not sure what's going on. How unusual is this behavior? We'll probably switch him to 100% dry food as a result.

Have you tried another brand?
They need their wet food, because cats don't drink enough water

This is not unusual, to say the least. For no obvious reason, cats can suddenly refuse their food they happily ate the day before. It sometimes drives you crazy..... So, you must variate the menu, possibly before they don't want a particular brand or taste anymore. If you're lucky, they will eat it again after 2 weeks or so.

I would try different brands before you switch to 100% dry food.
Good luck!
