Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Converting a kibble addict
Kyubey is being VERY stubborn about switching to canned food. He is definitely a kibble addict, he LOVES his crunchies, but is VERY reluctant to eat the good stuff.
We've tried sprinkling it with kibble, waiting until he's REALLY hungry (no longer than 12 hours though), heating the food a bit, and an assortment of canned foods from the top end all the way down to fancy feast.
Last night I put some shredded bonito fish on his wet food, and he actually took a few nibbles. This is the closest thing I've found so far to an actual solution, but he didn't eat more than a few nibbles, and then he stopped. This morning he got a fresh serving, and he ate the bonito off of it and stopped.
We did allow him a few bites of kibble because I don't want him to wind up with hepatic lipidosis, but I'm concerned that if we keep giving in and giving him kibble he will NEVER get transitioned.
