|Mina's mom here:
So here's the deal...I've been feeding our 3 cats wet food only for the past month to prepare them for the switch to raw food. They love the wet food only diet. No problems there. Been doing that for about a month.
Now I bought the powder mix from feline future and made a batch. I've been slowly mixing it in with their wet food. Right now it's about 25% raw, 75% canned. The two boys will eat it. I can tell they don't really like it, but they'll eat it because they're starving. Mina, on the other hand, won't touch it. If her wet food has the slightest bit of raw and she smells it in there, she'll just walk away.
I've let her go without eating breakfast and lunch, but at dinner time, I'll cave and give her a bowl of canned food (this is after she's walked away from the mixed food for a 3rd time). It's like she'd rather starve than eat any raw. I've tried putting a bit of the mixed food on my finger, but she just looks at me like I'm crazy. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice?
Right now I switched back to feeding her canned food only and I'm putting her in a separate room. But the boys can smell her food and have started to wonder over to her bowl. I'm not worried about the boys stealing her food and leaving her with nothing because they're scared of her. But will they stop eating their mixed food?
