Question Kitty Food Snob

Hi, I don't know if there is already a post about this, so sorry if there is, but I had a look through and I couldn't see anything. Anyway, I just adopted 3 month old Norris From the pet shelter. The problem is that he doesn't seem to like cat food at all. He goes nuts when I have bacon or meat, and he's so full of energy that he's MENTAL , but it just doesn't seem to me like he eats enough. Norris will sniff at his kitten food when I give it to him, and lick it a bit, but the only time he seems really interested in finishing it is when I give him kitty milk. He'll crunch down on a few pieces of dry food, but he doesn't eat a lot of it. Is he just being a Kitty food snob, or is he stressed out from moving to a new place or is he teething or something? Any help would be appreciated. Thanx.

Hi Sandee & Norris, welcome!

Don't worry. Norris is still a baby & his little stomach cannot keep too much food. I think he needs to get used to the cat food or maybe you may try another brand...
My Lady Brenda was the same when we first brought her home from the breeder's, she won't eat wet food until she saw the others eating it. I remember the breeder told me they fed the kittens with dry food only...
That's because she ate this type of food only.
So, keep on giving him cat's food & nothing more but keep an eye on him. If it continues, take him to the vet.
Good luck!

Hope to see pix of the cutie soon!

Welcome aboard, Sandee & Norris !

Yes, do what Maya has told you. I just want to add : When I just got Princess, my vet reminded me NOT to let my kitties get addicted to human food. So I tried and tried to change her appetite, until she finally get used to kitty food. Oh of course, she is very choosy, that's why Maya suggested that you also try another brand.

Any pix ?

Hey, thanx you guys, turns out I was just worrying about nothing. Now he won't STOP eating! He's eating everything I put in front of him, so I think he'll be fine.

Seems that Norris has been adjusting well to his loving home. Glad that he started to eat with such a good appetite. Now just be careful not to overfeed him...
