    Jack is our much loved Siamese cat. We have had him since he was 8 weeks old and he really is part of the family. He has never been easy to feed but is now becoming increasingly fussy. He has some dried cat food down all the time, which he does pick at occasionally, and has also a sachet of Purina Gourmet twice a day which until recently he ate well, but now seems to be going off. I think he is still hungry, just fussy. Our dogs have RAW and I tried him on a little minced chicken but he didn't like that. Before I go out and spend a fortune on all sorts of different types which he probably won't like, I thought I would ask here if anyone has been in a similar situation and what worked for them.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I haven't been in similar situation - but have you tried warming his food slightly and/or making a gravy to go with it?

    Have you monitored his drinking? Loss of interest in food often indicates a kidney problem but that usually means they start drinking more water.
