I have kept two of Autumn's sons: Little One and Gypsy - Gypsy eats cat food very willingly, he doesn't care if it is dry or wet food. Little One, on the other hand, won't eat cat food, even as a kitten.......he preferred raiding the trash (still does) or stealing food from anyone's plate that didn't keep their eyes on their plate (and still does). . When I can, once or twice daily, I feed Little One as healthy as I can, but my DF believes that if Little One doesn't eat every day, he's starving , so he's taken to feeding Little One anything off of his own plate .....worse yet, he's bought canned tuna (people grade) and has been feeding that to Little One. Little One eats fries, potato chips (his faves are Pringles and Lays Original), noodles, milk, meats have to be cooked/seasoned lightly (some beef and chicken, he will eat raw, bacon, he will eat raw), chicken cooked eaten bone and all, deli meats, rice has to be seasoned lightly, some vegies (all cooked and lightly seasoned), you name it, Little One will probably eat it. I can't get rid of Little One because he is DF's "Therapy cat", as when DF is in alot of pain/achy, Little one doesn't leave his side, except for drinking and litterbox time, he even sleeps in DF's chair at night, and on our bed during the day. I'm going to have to buy a book on cat nutrition for my DF to read, so he'll be better informed on how Little One really needs to eat. One last thing, DF thinks it is A OK if he feeds my cat people food also, against my wishes he doesn't see any harm, so while I'm at work, my cat is sampling (not gorging - sampling) bits of people food, the amount he does eat is small most of the time, but I don't want him eating both cat food and people food, he'll become a "Pudgy Boy". I feed Gypsy twice daily 6am/6pm dry (wet, if out of dry) cat food - left in his bowl for grazing on all day long/ which it lasts around 1 hour after feeding, after that, he shouldn't have anything to eat until I feed him after I get home from work. Does any one know of any natural recipes for my boys (cats), so that I don't have to worry about the health of both?
