So we had to bring Boo back home to my parent's house (where I lived a couple months ago) because I was coming to stay the week and had noone to look after her. We decided to lock her downstairs where my room is because she does not get on well with the other cat and I didn't want her getting to the dry food because I was afraid of what would happen. Also she has a problem with territorial defecation so we don't want that to start up again. The thing is, she ran right to the food cupboard as soon as she escaped from downstairs and she pulled it open and started gorging on dry food (what my parents feed their cat).
Unfortunately with this one binge a lot of progress has been undone. Boo would eat everything raw except for liver, which I have to mix a lot of gravy in with to get her to eat. Now she won't even touch chicken, her favourite, which I gave her for breakfast this morning. She usually gobbles it all within a half hour, she just loved it before!
Its like she expects she'll get dry now. I even mixed some gravy in the chicken and no luck so far. I don't want to have to resort to giving her dry but I know I might have to if she doesn't eat anything soon, as besides the dry food fiasco she's had nothing to eat for a day. I just know if I give her dry she's going to expect nothing less and she'll refuse to eat her raw, like she's doing now already.
She was eating chicken fine downstairs before she got upstairs and got to the dry food.
Also, she keeps trying to run upstairs to get to the cupboard where the food is. Its like she's a crazy addict or something, I don't get it! I thought she was over dry food but boy was I wrong.
Has anyone else had problems with regression? Any advice? Even the old tricks I used to entice her to eat when we started this diet aren't working. All she wants is dry.
