I don't like giving him a consistent diet of junk, but I'm not sure what else to do. When he's on a hunger strike, he never gives in.
The next most picky eater in the clan is Oliver. He turns up his nose at Friskies Shreds and the Fancy Feast Pate style. He'll only eat a few select flavors of the Fancy Feast Grilled style. He's also rather choosy on what dry nuggets he'll eat. I suppose he's not a starving stray anymore!
Meanwhile, I've been working on converting the indoor cats (except Buddy) to dry grain-free (Taste of the Wild). After a few weeks of mixing the old food with the new, the kitties have taken to it just fine. However, the litter box tells a different tale. Several of the cats have been having fairly loose poops since the conversion.
In the past, when I switched Theo's food he had some nasty diarrhea for quite a long time. After much medical testing, it was decided to give him a regular fiber supplement, which helped. Since it worked well then, I have since restarted that fiber and again it appears to be helping him. But with other cats showing some poop-consistency problems, I'm wondering what to do. I don't really want to switch back to the old food, but at least it agreed with their innards.
Has anyone else out there had troubles converting over to grain-free? I would love to hear what you did to solve the problems?
In other non-poop related news... last weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing a real Battlestar Galactica Viper Mark II up close! I was dying to hop inside and fly away.
The Viper was at the Battlestar Galactica exhibit at the Experience Music Project, in Seattle. They had two full-sized Vipers (Mark II and Mark VII) from the show, a full-sized Cylon Raider and tons of other props and costumes. The level of detail in these items is absolutely remarkable.
In June, another sci-fi exhibit opens at the EMP which will feature an Imperial Dalek from Doctor Who, Captain Kirk's command chair from Star Trek and lots of other great props from other classic sci-fi movies and TV. Certainly something to look forward to!
