That was very polite of your cat. Did he use the correct fork as well?

Now, she won't touch the new food, at all. I even "on purpose" forgot to fill her bowl with the old cat food Friday. So, by Saturday morning there was a lot of meowing comming from the kitchen. Yep. Old food gone. New food untouched. I didn't know what to do so I just filled a bowl with old food again.

Try mixing the old food and the new food in the same bowl.

That's good advice by Lorenzo. I would definitely try that. There is not much else you can do beyond that except for finding another quality food to try. Unfortunately this is quite common for pets to shun a new food they are not used to. Unless of course you have a lab and they will eat absolutely anything.

I'm a little late for the party but good luck with your business, as mentioned Whole Dog Journal and Dog food Analysis are both excellent sources of information. We feed Canidae to our three adult Dobermans and Innova right now to our Doberman puppy, I can't stress the importance of a good diet for both dogs and cats if you want to get the most out of their lives.

I have a real soft spot for Dobermans. They are awesome dogs. One of my favorite breeds. BTW I couldn't agree with you more.

Again Cats can be more challenging than dogs. Mixing the food the best way start 80/20 then after a few days move to 40/60 etc. It may take a few weeks, it can be a slow process for some pets. Don't give up.

Success with the new food, when I mix it with the old like it has been suggested here. She'll eat both that way. I'll continue to mix it for now, then gradually increase the amount of the good stuff later.

Watching her eat, I think she's a whole food swallower and not much of a chewer. The old food is smaller and smoother, easier to swallow that way.

That's good to hear CatBrat. As you increase the amount of the new food it always good to keep an eye on the litter box and any strange new behavior like excessive scratching (which could point to a food allergy with that new food). It seems like everything is good though. The stools will tell you if the new food is a keeper or not.
