How to Deal With a Cat That’s a Picky Eater
WebMD veterinary expert answers commonly asked questions about cats and finicky eating habits.
I’ve seen cats that stopped eating because the owner moved the bowl
somewhere and the cat was afraid to go there and eat.
Q: How do I keep my kitten from becoming a finicky eater?
A: Pick a good feeding site. And particularly in a kitten, feed it a variety
of flavors and forms of food. Always offer the different foods in separate
containers. Your kitten can’t tell you what he likes and dislikes. So keep
offering him choices so you can find what he’ll like and what he doesn’t. It’s
like kids. You want to expose them to lots of different choices.
