    Our little Tara is a very fussy little madam. She usually quite happily eats the Thrive Complete Chicken and would have the odd tin of the tuna as a treat - which she absolutely loves! However, with the building work going on she's got even pickier and I am worried that she isn't eating enough. I know that generally tuna is bad because of the high quantities of mercury and I also worry that I keep giving her the tuna she wont eat anything else. I have tried various other food but she turns her nose up at it. I am at a loss what to do with her.

    Gwen, have you tried Thrive Ocean Fish which is mostly mackerel, don't know if it makes a difference to mercury levels though. I give B & T that occasionally. Otherwise, what about Canagan which is similar to Thrive? It comes in loads of flavours, several different fishy ones, although its very expensive but the only one Bunty really likes above all others of course.

    Thanks for this. I will order some of the Ocean Fish as Tara is quite partial to mackerel. I found this online about mercury in mackerel:

    The Natural Resources Defense Council has a list of fish that contain the lowest levels of mercury. These include anchovies, catfish, flounder, hake, haddock, herring, salmon, trout, whitefish, pollock, mackerel, sardines and butterfish.

    Lith won't eat the tuna - will eat tuna & salmon. Won't eat chicken, will eat chicken & turkey. Absolutely no idea what the differences are to a cat! She has been rough for a couple of weeks with an ibd flare up & lost 400g. I just bought a large lot of both that arrived today. When she is like this, the only thing that stops her problems is the thrive. Along with famotidine & pro kolin. None of mine eating well, so, mr Tesco has just delivered a whole load of Felix as good as it looks double delicious. I know it is crap, but, they have to eat something! Fussy little beggars!
