Getting Finicky Cats to Eat

There are any number of reasons why or times in your cat’s life when she may become a bit finicky about eating. There are, however, some things that you can do to help encourage her to eat. First, break up her meals into two to four small portions each day. This ensures that her food is fresh. Second, gently warm the food to just below body temperature, making certain that it isn’t too hot. This often makes the food more aromatic and more appealing. Last, don’t leave your cat’s food down too long. Leave it out for just ten to fifteen minutes and remove it if she isn’t interested. Give her fresh food at her next feeding and she’ll likely be more interested.
