Kitty changing food preferences in a boarding cattery?
Recently my cat Milly stayed in a boarding cattery while I was away, and a strange thing happened: apparently she wouldn't eat her usual food. The lady caring for her said she refused her usual food (Eagle Pack wet food) and when the lady offered her Dine (another wet food) she ate it.
The weird thing is, now that she's home, I offered her Dine, and she didn't eat it. Because I'd like to have her back on Eagle Pack, the next time I prepared her food I put a tiny bit of Eagle Pack on one side of her bowl. She went straight for the Eagle Pack and barely touched the dine. Today I increased the amount of Eagle Pack, and she did the same thing! What I'm trying to say is that it seems as though she prefers Eagle Pack, even though the lady said she didn't want to eat it at the boarding cattery!
Is this normal? My guess is that she was a little bit stressed about being left at the boarding cattery and didn't have an appetite, and by the time she was offered Dine, she'd decided to eat again... I'm just guessing, though. I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts.
