My maincoon, who used to vacuum up anything that wasn't tied down, has gotten quite picky in his old age. (he's either 14 or 15 - which is old for his breed) I tried outwaiting him hoping he would get hungry enough, but that really didn't work and he lost weight. It's not that he's not hungry, he just doesn't want most of anything I offer him.
Currently the only thing I have been able to get him to really chow down on is the really cheap garbage in a can variety of food. While I'm happy he's eating in general - and happier still to get some weight back on to him- it's really not what I want to be feeding him. He's still generally healthy, and I'd like to keep it that way. His former food was Evo. He's also turned down Royal Canin and Eukanuba. I tried my hand at homemade, but he didn't want that either.
Currently he is eating Meow Mix wet for a main and Friskies dry any time he wants a snack. I've tried mixing in with better food, but he either will pick out the garbage while leaving the good behind or completely turn his nose up at the whole deal. This from a cat who used to be locked up at dinner time to keep him from eating everyone else's food after he scarfed his down.
Does anybody have some advice?
