Default Fussy on Food

My cat is very fussy about food, i had her for only about 2 months and i changed lot of food, she eats it for a week then nothing and she is hungry. Right now i`m feeding her almo naturals which are quit expensive and she already refuse some of them... has anyone else experienced this? My other cat did the same last June, but after 1 month he got back to his usual food. Can it be a sign of stress?

There are many possible reasons.But often fussiness is more down to the way you serve food rather than the food itself. Do you have many people around the house? Cats generally prefer to be left in peace to eat.

Try preparing the food for your kitty in a quite, out the way place (I feed our in our pantry, with the door closed half way). Some kitties like to be left alone in quiet to eat.
Some cats are just naturally fussy over food. My Cami will only eat when the food bowl has been filled to the rim (I empty it back out after she's had her feeding time) and will only eat once everyone else leaves the room.
If you are changing foods all the time, it could be causing stomach upset, hence the refusal of some foods. Food changing should be done gradually over a week to 2 week time period, giving your kitty time to adjust to the new food.

Both of my cats are extremely fussy about food as well. I think lots of cats are. I have tried all kinds of cat food and of course they only like the expensive stuff. Try to stick with one brand of food though because changing it often can cause stomach upset.

Same here my cat Sooty is picky sometimes. I buy this expensive fish cat food and he turns his nose up at the sight of it in his eating bowl.

I’m afraid its trail and error with some cats.

I have to bowls one with Go-Cat the other with wet cat food Whiskas simple fish cooked.

When my cat as finished he’ll start scratching the cupboard to tell me he wants more! I just go to the kitchen pick some of the Go-Cat out of the bowl with my fingers and drop it back into the bowl and he goes for it.

He knows its right next to his wet food bowl, he’s just a greedy little bugger. LOL
