This is Midnight Helen's mother:
About a week ago I tried switching Midnight's diet to canned food, after she had ONLY dry food for most of her life. She acted like she really liked it and then I noticed that all she was doing was licking the gravy off of it and not really eating it. I tried several different flavors--same thing. So a couple of days ago I started her back on her previous diet of dry food. She is constantly crying and meowing for me to feed her. Finally I broke down and gave her some tuna just so she would eat SOMETHING. She gobbled it down like she was starved. But now she refuses to eat her dry food!
Now....in the past I have given her tuna and then she refused to eat anything else for a day until she figured out she wasn't getting any more tuna. She acts otherwise fine. I would have worried about her thyroid condition but her blood work that she had done last week was great, everything was totally normal. Anybody have any ideas? I hate to just ignore her when she is crying for food but at the same time, I've tried all kinds of things! Should I call her vet?
