We give her Professional brand, and notice that she mostly licks it alot and we don't hear crunches before she swallows. In contrast, she much prefers Meow Mix and Friskies, which she does chew and crunch audibly (and quickly). We give these to her as treats, and want her to eat healthier. But she seems to have a problem chewing with the Professional brand and demands the junkier foods. We think it may be a chewing problem rather than flavor.
We also know that she has some gum inflammation and a cracked tooth. We were told that she is very picky and only likes dry food. When we tried giving her regular meats she didn't know what it was or how to eat it.
