When my cat had kittens and I was weaning them onto wet food/ dry food, I used to put some wet food on my finger and they would come over and smell it then lick the jelly. Once they got interested (might take a few days) with it on my finger I would move it down near the food bowl and they eventually would eat it. That's if you don't mind touching the cat food tease. Also this might sound cruel but if your kitten is hungry enough he/she will eat it so I wouldn't give it chicken and ham.

Good luck

I had a cat that was vegetarian but ate eggs. Scrambled. He lived till 15 -16 years old. He even ate tomatoes... Freaky cat. i am sure he will start eating soon.

Completely agree Elyth, took a bit of time to wean mine. They eventually go off the milk (I started to add water until that was what they wanted).

When I first tried to feed them dry food when they were older, they wouldn't have anything to do with it. A quick sniff, look of disgust, heads up, tails up, then walking away like it was beneath them grin I persevered because I didn't want to leave wet food out in the heat of the day when I'm at work, So now they have dry food in the morning and wet of an evening.

Also I think some dry food is good for their teeth, most pet insurances don't cover cats teeth.

Remember: Dogs have owners - Cats have staff smile

Good luck

I have and she eats it but I would rather she ate proper cat food to get the nutrition she deserves.

Her coat is marvellous.
Really furry and has a nice pattern so we must be doing something right.
