Allie's Strange Finicky Eating Behavior
I have two kittens, one with no worries, the other my white doll face persian Allie with finicky behavior.
She only weighs 6 pounds 6 ounces and has been bouncing around at this weight for a month.
Any little noise especially when shes eating disturbs her, not all the time but a lot.
Today for example..
I feed them both natural balance ultra canned, Oliver eats like a pig Allie begins covering her food after 60 seconds and walks out the door. I open a canned of friskies beef gravy and bring her back inside. She eats for two minutes and walks outside.
I follow her outside and feed her on top of her cat tree, she eats for quite a while and then comes down. I then put her food on a shallow plate(her bowl is already shallow)and put the plate on the floor in front of her face. She eats yet again for couple of minutes and is now finished.
Similar behavior almost every day, sometimes when shes covering her food I will stick a fork in her food and play with it and make a pile in the middle of her bowl. She will then proceed to eat again, if I am not watching she will walk away and not eat anymore...
I am not working right now so I am around to cater to her, if im working will she starve with her silly behavior?
I cater to her because shes a slim jim and I want a fatter heavier cat, her younger brother is not nearly as long as her but almost weighs the same as her.
She has me wrapped around her paws, I end up buying a whole bunch of pricey fancy feast purely food etc...Sometimes I end up going to the store special, they both was brought up on natural balance dry and ultra canned.
I try to feed them late at 9 am to make them extra hungry, sometimes it works with Allie, most times it does not. I do have dry natural balance that she munches on during the night in my room, but she eats that like a flea also..
Sometimes she holds out for fancy feast purely, if I dont eat this surely my owner will give me something better. The downside is if I do not she starves herself
