Well, Mom got this idea from catinfo.org about making our food. How Iz ses it is this: She can make me booties (like when I was a baby), she can grow us natnip, make us toys, but - Well, this one is a loser. She got this box in the mail full of vitamins and stuff. Then she went out and bought a bunch of chicken (that part not so bad) and some other stuff. Then she and dad ran all over Lexington to find a meat grinder cause her hand one just wouldn't cut it (sorry they call that a pun). Came home and did all this mixing and grinding and measuring. All the time wez cats is hungry and meowing for supper. It getting later and later, dark outside way past feeding Little Sweetie time. At last she has this big bowl stirred. She pickin' up our food bowls. Wow, dinner at last. What's this? She put it down for Lucy. She sniff it, then start eating. Milo, he do the same, sniff then eat. She put down Linus' and he just sit there. He don't even try. So now I a little anxious. She give me mine. I sniff it, give mom a rotten look and run away. I hear that Lottie did the same. Then she give a little to Phoenix. She scarf down hers, goes over and eats half of Linus'. First time something so little got his food! So, now we be hungry but not wantin' that stuff. Maybe we make a deal with Mom tomorrow.

Could your mom try mixing some of your new food in with your old food for awhile, eventually changing over to the new at some point? That might help you to accept it better. Some of us kitties are creatures of habit and it's hard to introduce something completely new. :)
awww why she gotta go and change the food? let her know if she cannot figure it out us kitties do not care for change, good luck with that deal making process
Tigger has a good idea about mixing. Just a little in with your regular to start. Maybe the deal can be just mix the chicken in at first heheee...that sounds good to me. Good luck Miranda. I hope you get something delish tonight!
Yeah, I think mixing it in is a good idea.
Miranda your mom did it too fast. You can't just plop it down, it takes time. She should start with a tiny bit in your food like Tigger said. Did your mom read my switching foods page? http://www.ibdkitties.net/switchingfoods.html

Yeah, she checked it out this morning and is gonna be mixing old and new and gradually switch it over. Lucy likes da new stuff an so does Phoenix. Lottie, Linus an' me not budging at the moment. She gonna go back to special diet and start over with us. I am a fussy eater anyway, same for Lottie. She never liked wet food much before. But Linus normally eats everything in site. He a bit of a surprise.
MOL that's funny The human has always wanted us to eat wet food. She thought when I came home from my 6 months walk about and skinny I might eat anything. WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT. I turned my nose up at the wet food and still insisted on dry. Shows how stuborn cats can be. I'M NOT STUPID I knew she had those biscuits in the cupboard.
Definitely agree with Tigger! Although, I'll eat anything! NOM NOM NOM! Brofur though? He's picky!
Mr D that be so funny!!!! When Linus came back from his adventure he went right to da fountain and played it in - well after kissing his momcat hello!
