I used to try to feed Luna Fancy Feast entrees when she was 9 weeks old and she would just lick the gravy and not eat the meat chunks. I think it takes cats time to adjust to different food textures as well. Luna actually really likes pÔtÚs. I think she prefers them to meat chunks.
I use the flat side of a fork to smash the chunks up into smaller pieces otherwise I have the same problem. They like Fancy Feast, almost any flavor, but prefer the meat varieties over the fish I think.
My Jack won't touch wet food. Only dry for him. Not even tuna.
Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"
Tucker likes almost every wet food I've ever put in front of him, lol. He even steals the empty cans from Tigerlilly's room--he pillages the trash can on a daily basis. I throw his cans into the big trash so he has to sneak into my mom's room to get into Tigerllily's cans.
Uh oh...what's wrong with the gravy flavours? That is what my cats like the best too....
gravy flavors are really carby (and carbohydrates are not good for cats) and contain wheat gluten, that is a source of these carbohydrates and also just a filler that actually might be bad for cats (it's a potential allergen and could be a source of gastrointestinal problems). my cats are addicted to FF because all their lives until I adopted them they were fed junky cat food, so I am trying to transition them to high quality wet food. I dont want to feed them food with grains so I only give them FF classic varieties with mixed in high quality wet (EVO, Wellness). Classic varieties of FF are not the highest quality, but at least they are grain-free and actually low carb.
Another for Fancy Feast. I've tried most premium brands and they turn their nose up and walk away. Disappointing! I feed mainly the classic flavors, and give fish flavors only as a treat. One of their favorite non-classics is the FF Elegant Medley variety, which is good to mix with all the leftover premium food they don't like.
All of them absolutely love Fancy Feast, the ones with the aqua colored label. I buy them expensive, all natural, grain free, deluxe food and what do they like: Fancy Feast. It is like kids only wanting to eat Happy Meals.
