Switch to canned food

We recently switched our cats to canned food and now the two older cats are attacking the younger cat! Our cats have been together for several years and this behavior is not normal. Is it the canned food? Do we need to feed dry only or dry in addition to the canned? They certainly love the canned food.

Hi and welcome! I presume you mean they are attacking your younger cat at mealtime in order to get at the food...as opposed to just randomly attacking your younger cat at various times during the day (?). If so, perhaps give your older cats their food first, so they're busy eating when you put you younger cat's food down. Hopefully, once the "newness" of the wet food wears off, the behaviour will subside.
