He keeps sneaking the wrong food
My cat DohG has been on a healthy diet from about 7 days old. I hand fed him, from the time he was ready to eat solid food he has eaten a a higher end food. Nutro, Natrual Balance, Chicken soup etc. He has only had wet food with a bit of dry food here and there.
However my sister came to stay with me for a few months, she has 2 cats of her own, 1 being DohGs sister. My sister feels that Cat chow, in-door formula is a great food and thats what she feeds her cats. Only dry food.
She also free feeds.
Well DohG of course LOVEs this food. Everytime I turn around he is in her room crunching away. He has gotten to the point that he will only eat on full meal of wet food everyday. Not anything like he used to, normally (Before his sisters food came into play) he would eat about 5 small meals a day, I work in my home so I can bring him his food often. I have tried to get him to eat a healthier dry food, but he doesnt eat much of that either.
He hasnt been to the vet for a few months but from what we can see he has gained alot of weight. Don't get me wrong he is big boy, but is much bigged now. My sister thinks its because of his wet food, of course we know better.
Is him eating this food for 4 months or so going to harm him? My sister along with her darling cats will be heading back to their home the end of this month.
How do I go about getting him back to his normal feedings....with less and less dry?
Does anyone have any advice?
