Do cats get bored with their food?

Mine has stopped eating her wet food but still eating her dry food. I remember her doing this before and we changed brand and she was fine.

Mine seems to, usually when I have just stocked up on it.

Same here, I buy it in bulk and she stops eating it.
I don't know how true it is but my vet insists that some cats would rather half starve than eat some foods that they have gone off for some reason.

Unlike dogs.

Mine have had the same food ever since I adopted them. Last week they were ignoring cat pate etc in favour of their biscuits. (One of the little buggers has broken her jaw and was supposed to be on wet food only) so I don't think mine are that bothered.

Yep. I have 4 or 5 brands on rotation usually confused

Cat soup is a favourite this month, the only dry food that she will eat is Hills tiny size hmm

Yep! DCat is currently on the last few packets of a bulk buy box, and has started sniffing it and walking away...... 🙄

He's done well though, as I usually rotate 2 different brands so he doesn't get bored.

Yes, it's a constant challenge.

I have to rotate all the time, one decided just this morning they no longer like the one that yesterday they were munching away on - looked up at me as much to say "stupid human today is not the day for Sheba" so he had gourmet, served that to all of them this evening and same look from a different one, who then wanted Sheba smile

I find myself shaking my head on a regular basis

My cats did this and I mentioned it in the pet shop as I was looking for new brands. If you look at the ingredients on the food and it says fish 20% then what makes up that fish content can vary depending on what's cheap at the time. However if it says Salmon 15% then it must always be salmon. So you think you're buying the same recipie but actually it's changing.

Mine do with it the same blooming box smile but that is very interesting I shall have to keep an eye on it!

Mine likes to change both wet and dry every few weeks.

Parky gits.

I try and buy a few different brands at once (pets at home do 20 sachets for the price of 16 I think, mix and match) so she doesn't get bored. But she would happily live on her biscuits, so only gets these at bedtime. I think dry food is like junk food to cats!

I have a continual rotation
I wouldn't want to eat the same thing all the time, so why should she? wink
