    Hello all

    I just want to know if anyone has any advice on the following.

    (Candy 12 years old) She will eat her wet food for a week or so and then starts to lick the Gravy/Jelly off and leaves the meat. I have tried changing her meat, but the same thing happens. I have tried Gravy and Jelly, but all she will eat regular is cooked Chicken. She does have dry food down and she is healthy and fit, but I have been told she should have some wet food due to previous health problems before we got her(over active thyroid and cystitis) . Any ideas?:confused:

    lol what you have there is a Very clever cat ;)

    What she has trained you is 'I stop eating this food mummy buts nicer food' 'mummy worries when I go off of that and buys even nicer food...' :D

    We have all been there worried about them only to find they are just being cats! lol!

    Leave her food let her do that, let her not eat and stare at you for a day of 'your mean!'

    and she will start eating again!

    Elvis catchs me off guard and still does this to me! very clever little sods! :)

    I totally agree, Taylorbaby...
    When she notices that she will have to deal with the same food and you're not going to change it, I'm sure she will eat it. Cats don't starve themselves.

    Another possibility: when it's very hot (like these days), our cat doesn't like to eat wet food at all. When it's this warm, I only give her dry food. Don't ask me why...
