Your Finicky Eater

Cats more than dogs are noted for being finicky eaters. You bring home high quality cat food and prepare a variety for your feline friend and what do you get, a sniff, taste and then up goes the nose as your fussy eater struts away. I have two cats. One cat seems to like nothing, that’s right nothing. She nibbles throughout the day and night, so I don’t get too concerned. My Siamese cat, is new to our family so I’m still trying to figure out his eating habits. In his last days with his previous owner, I suspect that he wasn’t getting much of anything to eat because his owner was too ill to feed him. When we took him in, he ate like a dog. He gobbled up everything in his bowl so fast. Now that I’ve stabilized his diet, his eating habits have changed. He eats a little at a time throughout the day.

If your cat is finicky, that’s normal but here are a couple of reminders. If you decide to add a new food to your cat’s diet, do it gradually. A sudden change may upset his digestive system. If your cat stops eating all together, take him to the vet as soon as possible. There could be a serious underlying medical condition causing the problem.
