Hello everyone, I apologize in advance for the length; I wanted to be thorough, but I tried to keep it as short as possible... didn't do well it seems! I’ve been lucky enough to bring a kitten into my life for the first time; her name is Zoya and she’s almost 6 months old now. As an overly enthusiastic new kitty mother, I did a ton of research on the best types of food and schedules to keep her in the best health. We decided on the following: Feeding Details 3x/day wet food: Animonda Carny for kittens (400g tins). After every tin is finished, we change flavors of Carny (between the 4 available) Every 3 weeks or so, we introduce a random brand gradually (about a teaspoon to start) alongside the Carny so she gets used to different ingredients, textures, etc 1x/day dry food: Animonda kitten dry feed I’ve understood dry isn’t ideal... but we chose this: So she could eat more frequently, even while we’re away at work (we heard various small meals throughout the day is healthier than 1-2 big meals), To give her variety, To help her teeth in the future. Each meal is served about 4-5 hours apart, from 8am to 10pm The Problem In the beginning, she was only given wet food. She was never quick to eat it; in fact, she would commonly only eat a few bites, leave, and then continue eating hours later. Mostly, she would finish the food, but occasionally she would leave a tablespoon or so overnight that we’d throw away in the morning. Once we introduced the dry food, though, she would eat all of it nearly immediately. I feel like the problem is getting worse... she barely touches the wet food and seems really excited any time she knows we’re about to give her dry food. She always finishes the dry food; now more and more, she leaves quite a few tablespoons of the wet food that we end up throwing away. She often only begins eating a serving of wet food 3 hours or so after we’ve given it to her, without taking a single bite before that. Our Attempts at Problem-Solving At first, we thought she might be bored of the food... but we change the flavor of the Carny after every can is finished and occasionally add in other random brands a teaspoon at a time (not mixed, to the side) to see how she’ll react to it; we do it also to give her variety in hopes she doesn’t become picky. She treats the new food about the same as the Carny. Then we thought it might be because of the temperature of the food. I had been giving it to her refrigerated since we first got her and she didn’t seem to mind. When she started not eating it as much and I researched that cats might not like cold food, I decided to zap it in the microwave for 7 seconds or so (as I had seen recommended in these forums). She treated it the same. Even when the can is freshly opened and room temperature she treats it the same. It's also weird because she seems to prefer the food “old.” For example, I can give her a normal serving of wet food at 8am, then when it comes time for her next meal at 1pm, she still has from 1/3 - ½ of the food still sitting there. I push that food to the side and add a new serving to the other side of the bowl. She doesn’t come immediately, but maybe after an hour or so when she does come, she eats the old food instead of the new. Every time. I don’t like that she seems to be eating food that has been sitting out, especially now that it is summer and raw meat shouldn’t really be sitting out like that. Conclusion – Any Suggestions? Has anyone had a similar issue with their kitten? I’m so worried that she’s starving and just waiting around for the dry, but I also want to make sure that she’s eating healthy food. Or since she’s a kitten should I just give her more dry food to make sure she’s eating enough, then try to switch her back when she’s older? We just weighed her and she’s about 2.9 kilos, so she seems to be about normal for her age (she'll be 6 months old on August 10). Last we had weighed her she was about 2.2 kilos (a month or so ago), so on top of the issues above we just realized we were also feeding her too little based on her weight and age... So starting tonight I will begin giving her even more food which I’m afraid will just go to waste (except for the dry, of course). Any ideas to get her to eat more of the wet food? Should I be worried? Thanks very much for your time – I really appreciate it.
