I've been wondering why my cat wouldn't eat wet food for the longest time until I gave it shreds and it's actually eating it, is this a normal thing? I've read siamese cats are picky eaters never has she been with dry food. I just find this odd behavior but I guess some are just picky texture eaters?

Based on what I have seen/read on this site, many cats prefer certain textures, so I am not sure it is an issue overall. I have a cat that refuses to eat any wet food that is NOT pate.

And on the flip side, I have one who won't touch pate with a 10 foot pole.

She also doesn't like any cat foods that look like real meat

My cats all dislike pate, they prefer anything but that with liquid is best. I can sometimes get them to eat pate if I mush it with water until it's lickable.

Mine eat Pate mostly but they also enjoy shreds and filet varieties as well,sometimes I mix them to really make it interrupted for them.

Cats definitely have texture preferences. Mine prefers pate over shreds. whenever I add some tiki cat into his rotation he is a lot less enthused to eat it.
