I Think I'm Just Being a Picky Eater?

Well, I thank you all fur responding to my last diary entry!!..yes Meowmy has often thought of taking me to the vet..but first of all let me clarify a few things: I am running around and playing, my coat looks and feels wonderful and my eyes are sparkinling and I do run up fur treats!!..especially at 9p.m...I just know when that time is and even call out and tell Meowmy it's bedtime snack time.

Now, Meowmy is concerned about my eating a eat habits are terrible!!'s almost like I have an eating disorder..I kid you not and am not sure if this is possible with a kibbie to have somefin like this.

Some days are better than other days...some days I will eat what Meowmy gives me and other days I will walk away from it and then Meowmy keeps trying with all kinds of is very frustrating as the other cats will try to help themselves to what I am given so theis just makes me back up even more. And NO!! I can not be put away to eat..I get very panicky if Meowmy trys to pick me up!! I jump out of her arms and run down stairs to hide!! Some days all I want to eat is treats, other days the hard food is ok and then I may have the soft..there is no rhymn or reason with my eating's almost like a disorder!!

This all started on Halloween day when Meowmy was in a hurry to get me to the vet clinic for a shot and she kept chaisng me around the house, trying to put me in the cage..I couldn't figure out what in the world was going on, and even jumped out of her arms at one the end of it I was crying and peed myself and Meowmy just sat on the floor and said, "what am I doing to you? this is not fair..trying to rush to make a deadline to get you to the vet before they closed". Mewomy sat there and cried..cuz she felt was a Friday and she was borrowing a car to take me to the vets a half hour away from home..

Since then I have changed and am slowly coming around but Meowmy fears I will never be like I once was and she really misses me!!

Has anyone ever heard if kibbies can have an eating disorder or an anxiety disorder? If so what can we do? Believe me, up here in Canada in a small town vet clinic I am not sure if they can properly treat Neiko for such things...I love my Neiko to bits and am very concerned about her..she does come and lay close to me and will sleep with me..but she doesn't lay on my lap anymore and spends most of her days looking out the window

It's kitteh's peragative to be a picky's when you stop eating and drinking get worried!
As for bonding, Henry and I bond when I brush him and play with him, that makes him want to sit by me and snuggle with me. Just keep giving it time..

I get picky sometimes, but I'm chubby so Mommy doesn't worry. If you have a favorite food, will you eat that all the time? If so, maybe you can stick with that.

Your fur and eyes sound good....My "mom" got us some EVO and we don't like it and will walk away from it. We do like Wellness and life's abundance.
Hard food is not that great. We do like our canned food because it has more water in it. Hard food tends to make us fat. We may get some treats but not every day. Alex is the begger here and loves treats so we have to watch them. You will know in your heart if a vet's visit is in order. Stop feeling bad about the last one. I bet that he isn't thinking about it as you are.

Thank you Tiger and Alexander for responding..I do not have a favorite food unfortunately..never know how I am going to be for food on any given day. I concurr hard food is not great and our Friday can't have any because of crystals..I live in a very trying household..Friday is put away to eat and its a guessing game what I want to eat.

Hi purrty gurlfuriend~~!!

aww..yes dis is what we suspect is da problem..YUP being chased is not great..I'm the only one with this issue at home..thank goodness..No, I don't like yeah..but it's a guessing game because I am never the same two days in a row...but I do get purrty vocal at night time..maybe because that is when I am most hngry? anyway..I jump on the chair and put my front paws on the top of the back of the chair and look Meowmy staight in the eye and holloer "feed me"..MOL!! the night time seems to be when I really want to eat..the daytime if very frustrating fur my Meowmy..while the others eat and even try to help themselves to my food..I just run away or shake my head and say, nope I want something else...and this can go on all morning!! but I realy love this stuff up here in Canada, it's holistic and it's from's pretty good..unless I decided I don't wantit today..MOL
