When your mucus refuses to eat, it's not always an indication that something is wrong. there what to do if the cat does not eat, when to worry and some tricks to entice him.
The cat does not eat
If the cat does not want to eat for more than 24 hours, the animal may have a basic and potentially serious problem that requires immediate attention from the veterinarian.
Indeed, cats can develop a disease secondary, called hepatic lipidosis or fatty liver, if they don't eat for too long.
But if your cat chooses to skip a meal and refrain from eating for only a few hours, it could just be a tantrum.
In particular, active and more playful cats stop in front of their bowl for a couple of seconds and then move on to their next adventure, without having eaten much, if not nothing.
Other times cats do not eat if they have not been used to eating everything; if you have always given dry food to cats, when you give them wet food they don't eat it because they don't know what it is.
What to do if you don't eat: strategies
All cats are different which is why we love them. Whatever the reason your feline is picky about the food on offer, try these simple strategies to help him eat again.
Remember never to force your cat to eat, as this can lead to a negative situation and potential food aversion.
The first thing to do is to try offer the cat food for the kittens.
The latter contains more protein and more fat, precisely to help puppies build their growing bodies, and has a tastier flavor than adult cat food.

We often wonder about what flavors actually feels the cat . If taste is a secondary matter or if, indeed, it turns out to be a determining component for our little furballs. If savoring has the same meaning it has for us human beings, who often seek pleasure in taste rather than an instrument, as in reality it can be for animals, and which we study and experiment for taste.
The cat does not want wet food : tragedy. There are times when our beloved felines really give us a hard time. We carefully select bags and boxes to feed them with quality products, tasty and simply mouth-watering but nothing, sometimes they throw a tantrum and we don't understand why.
We've gotten to know them: our feline friends aren't (always) independent as they want us to believe. On the contrary, they often want to be with us, like this one kitten: does not want to sleep alone and decides to aim the Latvian to be with his bipedal friends.
The health of our little furball takes priority. Being able to trace the cause of any discomfort is therefore crucial to promoting a long and healthy life. Making sure that Miao is well is also of fundamental importance in terms of the relationship between bipedal and quadrupedal.
