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 don't 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, I've tried just wet food without his food, and I've tried a mixture of both evenly and nothing worked. He hasn't touched wet food any time that I've tried this. When I mix he will leave the whole thing, and 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 with the wet food I've 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 I'll 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 it's not like he is dying of dehydration (from what I can tell). His coat is really nice, and I'm 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 temperature or way to serve the food that makes a difference?
