Default Mamas kitty

My moms cat is feeling under the weather. He's not eating his regular food. So I got her some wet food to get something in his tummy. She was wondering what could she do to get him to eat? He's starting to get more active since I got the wet food. But still not wanting the hard food.

He may have dental problems if he'll eat the wet food and not the dry. Probably a vet visit is in order. Or does he have other symptoms like a respitory infection?
Time in a steamy bathroom can help. Cats have to be able to smell their food.

Eating the wet food is a good idea. Smelly foods too, like Wellness chicken and herring. Add a little water to the food to make it easier to lap up.

We added tuna water to his dry food but he picked around the dry food to get to the tuna

Maybe let the dry food marinate in tuna water until its softer?
