After reading up on a lot of forums about how cats need wet food I have tried to feed my cat wet food from about November until recently (February). I dont try every day, more like every once in a while when i go to the store i try a different brand and have even tried one or two off amazon. I've tried just a small dollop in his normal food, ive tried just wet food without his food, and ive tried a mixture of both evenly and nothing worked. He hasnt touched wet food any time that ive tried this. When i mix he will leave the whole thing, when i put dried food on top he will eat it off and around the wet food but not touch the wet food at all.
I should mention i have a scheduled feeding time and amount and i have only tried an evening time for the wet food. I keep him on poultry for the most part but on the wet food ive tried even branching to Salmon as a 4th ingredient. His dry food is chicken and turkey based and he eats fine.
He drinks a decent amount of water when i am home, sometimes ill hear him drinking randomly in the evening and every morning after i shower he jumps in right after i get out and licks the floor of the shower for a little bit. I could shower right after he drinks from his bowl and this will still happen so its not like he is dying of dehydration (from what i can tell). His coat is really nice and im taking him on a checkup soon.
I am wondering if this is a problem? Should i keep trying different wet foods or should i give up? Is there a specific process to transition? Is there a specific temp or way to serve the food that makes a difference?
