Note that one can transition kits to the much healthier wet food (and then healthy wet food, as opposed to Friskies, which is great for getting cats to eat anything) by adding in a little of the desired stuff at a time while subtracting the old stuff. Cats are instinctually fussy about food for a good evolutionary reason. You can also putting really smelly bonito flakes or tuna water on things they may otherwise not eat. I also use freeze-dried liver or salmon or chicken or beef (from save sources, not China), because it smells so strong. The nose is the gateway to a cat's stomach.
