Hello

I’ve been trying to work this out by myself but now it’s time to ask you guys what you think I should do. My two-year-old Abyssinian female kitty seems to be always changing what she prefers to eat. She is my first cat, which I got about a year and a half ago. Once I think I have it figured out she changes what she prefers and when she wants to eat. She calls the shots, not me. That’s probably my downfall. Maybe I’m too accommodating. I’m home with her pretty much every day 24/7. If I put out what she liked before, she just lets me know she prefers for something else to eat. It’s driving me insane ha ha. Here is a list of what she likes whenever she’s in the mood to eat it: Solistic karma chicken, Nature’s Variety brand, Stella and chewy freeze dried chicken and turkey, Wild Calling chicken and turkey, Life essentials 100% freeze dried chicken which started out as a treat, only now she prefers more of it. I’m not sure Life essentials should be considered a balanced meal or just a treat since it’s only chicken. What do you think? Is this normal or am I being played which I’m sure I am? On a sidenote she calls me when she wants to cuddle, wants me to watch when she goes to the bathroom and calls out when she’s wants a snack. She likes to cuddle at least three times a day and then sleeps with me at night. She likes a lot of attention. She doesn’t like when I’m on my iPhone. Ha ha. I’m not complaining about that part which I enjoy. I tried feeding her on a schedule but because I’m home most of the day it seems she lets me know when she’s ready to eat. Maybe I need to be more firm with her and put my foot down so she follows my rules and not respond when she talks in that cute voice to me which plays to my heart. She knows how to play me. What do you do if she just refuses to eat what you put down. Do you try something else or do you stick to your guns and say this is your meal? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
