Place even the smallest amount of wet food in a bowl and more often than not your cat will be there in a flash.
The smell, taste and texture has made it a firm favourite with all different breeds, young or old, for many decades.
And yet it’s not uncommon for some fussy felines to all of a sudden begin turning their nose up to what was once a popular meal.
Believe it or not, temperature can play a role in this recipe revolt. If you’ve been serving wet food straight from the fridge, or setting it down near a window or door, it might be losing some of the aroma that makes it so appetising to our felines.
Have you recently changed recipes? It could be that one of the ingredients in this new wet food offering doesn’t agree with their stomach or tastebuds.
Another reason a cat may suddenly lose their appetite is that they’re struggling physically. Maybe they have a broken tooth, an abscess or they’re just feeling under the weather. Stress or anxiety can also have an adverse effect on a cat’s appetite.
Whenever you think your cat’s loss of appetite could be the result of a medical condition, contact a vet immediately.
