Default I Broke My Foster Persian

Ezra has been with me for about 4 months. He's perfect, and I mean PERFECT! Except I fear that I have ruined him.

Both cats eat TOTW dry. Canned food results in an ugly litterbox for Ezra, and Chesh just plain won't eat it.

A few weeks ago, I brought home chicken feet for the dogs. Neither one of them would eat them, so I started tossing one to Ezra each day. He loved them.

Well, I'm sure you can already tell what happened. Now Ez won't eat his kibbles. He stands in front of the fridge and screams for chicken feet.

If he were a dog, I would just starve him out until he decided to eat his kibbles, but I know you can't do it to a cat for longer then 24 hours. He's actually starting to lose weight.

Suggestions for getting him to eat kibbles again? I've tried a different formula of TOTW, and a different grain free kibble, and he's barely eating enough of each to stay alive. If he were my cat, I would just shrug and start researching how to raw feed him, but he's a foster.

Try soaking his kibble in warm water with a spoonful of ground raw mixed in. If it works, slowly decrease the amount of raw. Then quit soaking it.

This is similar to what I have to do with Lacey, every few months she goes through a faze of not eating for days on end. After ~5 days I give in.

Solution:

Adopt him and let him eat raw!

Well, since you asked so nicely....





Isn't he perfect? He's been put in a lion cut since then, but he's just adorable. His little nose is nothing but a pinprick, much flatter then my Cheshire's, but I've gotten used to it.

Yep, you're gonna have to keep him. That's actually the only solution. At all. Ever.

OMGOSH, he is utterly adorable. He is just so CUTE!!! And miserable looking. I love it. I think you must keep him, thats the only solution to this problem. I also want to poke his little button of a nose.

Actually, this is good advice. Have you tried turning him off and on again?
