Fussy kittens not eating

My kittens are now 9 months old both with very different personalities one is very greedy whilst the other is very laid back and plays it cool. When they were very little I use to buy Whiskas kitten food, they seemed to enjoy for a while then they just stopped eating. They would go for a whole day without eating so I decided to change. I then bought a supermarket own brand kitten food and found that it contained less meat but more juicy with lots of gravy which they liked. Then just as last time they went off their food again! My mum feeds her cats Whiskas cat food from the tin so I tried this instead. For the first few days they loved it but after that they have now gone of their food again.

Cats seem to be very fussy eaters and mine do not really enjoy eating meat but fish is their favourite. When I have my dinner I have noticed if I give them some of my food they love it whether its meat, chicken or fish they gobble it down in no time. I have found my kittens to be the strangest because they eat a lot of human things that my friends say that cats don’t do. I recently tried to add gravy to their food because I know this is their favourite, they lick the gravy off and all they have left is dry food. This also didn’t work, I have been tempted to make homemade cat food but I worry that if I cannot give them any for whatever reason they will not eat. I also travel a lot so I cannot rely on my mum to make homemade cat food. Homemade cat food will be 100% meat, chicken or fish whereas bought cat food have a minimum of 7% which is disgusting no wonder my kittens enjoy home cooked food.

Do your cats eat the following?
Sweet corn, on the cob, popcorn, tomatoes, KFC, peas, potato, crisps, cheese and sweets. I don’t give my kittens these foods intentionally but when I’m sitting down and they come to me they trick me into giving them some. Just out of curiosity I give in but they do surprise me, my mum’s cats don’t eat half the things I give to mine. I’m not sure if my cats are strange or if other people’s cats are weird? I don’t ever give my kittens chocolate as this can be very bad for their heart, even though they will make their cute little face to say they want some.

Kitten Vomiting Advice

I have two male kittens that are just over 6 months old, one is a stripy grey colour called Tiger Billy and the other is stripy with a white face, belly and legs called Jet Li. They both have different personalities; Tiger Billy is very greedy whilst Jet Li plays it cool. The other day I found what looked like diarrhoea in the kitchen, I cleaned it up and checked the boys but they seemed fine. Tiger Billy was acting very strange he was very quiet and withdrawn.

We made a little area for him on the sofa and he slept for a little while and even ignored me whilst I served his lunch which was very unusual for him. After a little while he jumped off the sofa let out a very load meow and run under the table. I went to see and it sounded like he was throwing up a hairball, when I looked he vomited all his cat biscuits he cried for in the morning.

After I cleaned up the mess I called the vet, she advised me that he was over eating on cat biscuits and this was very hard to digest as it gets absorbed by water so he had to vomit it out. We have limited how many biscuits we give him  now no matter how much he meows and he seems to be fine.

It’s just really hard to ignore when your cat cries for food all the time you feel like you have to give in. My mum only feeds her cats twice a day once in the morning and again in the evening whereas mine get fed 4 times a day. Whiskas advises you to feed little and often recommending two pouches of food a day in small portions. I feed a pouch of kitten food in the morning and the half a pouch for lunch and another half a pouch for dinner. Just before we go to bed we leave some biscuits out for them. I have heard of neighbours who only feed their cats once a day, so I suppose it’s a personal choice.

Even after doing this my kittens still cry for food, other cats seem to survive on less than this and are perfectly fit and healthy. My mum has the third kitten in the litter that mine came from, he eats less but is so chubby whereas mine are long and lean. My kittens look like fully grown cats as their brother looks like a chubby kitten.
