    Any suggestions for a picky kitty ?
    Snickers my former stray kitty will not eat any wet at all. He does eat good other than that.
    I think he looks beautiful.

    Hi!

    He IS beautiful!!! and that's a terrific picture of him - nicely done!

    Would you be able to obtain some fancy feast, or could you order Paws and Claws from Tractor Supply? There's also Merrick Backcountry, Natural Balance, and the foods that are available in your local grocery store are decent.

    Try a flat paper plate, sometimes that helps cats to eat, and maybe there is something here if you aren't already familiar with this article;

    I am presuming he likes dry good. Try mixing some wet good with the dry, at first just enough to coat the wet. If he eats it, slowely add more wet.

    Hi. Thanks for the pic! I have nothing to offer about the food, I just wanted to say I love hearing those words "my former stray kitty". Yay Snickers!!

    He looks quite regal.

    We have a picky kitty. So far he only likes the Caru stews and Life’s Abundance pate. We started by topping the food with some cooked chicken to entice him.

    Have you tried a couple different textures? My picky kitty won't eat chunks or most shreds (some Tiki Cat is an exception) but she does like mousse and pates. I actually thin pate with bone broth or kitten milk replacer and she dives right in! Serving it warm or with some crumbled kibble/freeze dried food also is a way I entice her :)
