my crf kitty, who was fed delicat from the time she was weaned at 4 weeks of age (i rescued her at years old), and REFUSED to eat anything other than that--she'd hold her nose and turn calico and BLUE before she'd eat anything else, WOULD eat a home-made ground turkey diet, with hard-boiled eggs for taurine, and brown rice to stretch it out (yeah, i know they don't NEED carbs).... then she stopped eating that, too..... now she gets whatever it is she'll eat--fancy feast, friskies, 9 lives--all meat ones, no fish..... i've tried to have the, "you have to eat well or you'll DIE," discussion with her, and she just gazes at me with her green eyes and says, "mom, i'm going to die anyway, in my own time. you know that, i know that. give it a rest." calicos can be a REAL pain.
