Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Why wont my friend's 13 month old kitten eat her dry food?

My friend has a 13-month old kitten and she will not touch her dry food. My friend has to make her kitten a soupy-broth type mix and adds the dry food to that. Any ideas why she wont eat the dry food alone? The kitten eats the same food I feed Mikko. FROMM. It has a five star rating and it is supposed to be top notch food. I have no idea why she wont eat it. Mikko eats it just fine, and he has a sensitive stomach. She tried feeding the kitten the food she was eating before...but it wasn't the right flavor. Mikko (as stated before) has a sensitive stomach, and he puked twice in one week after switching to it.

    Maybe not all cats like to eat that kind of food. Because, like us humans, every man has his hobbyhorse. You can try to use another cat food to feed her, see if she eat them. If your cat does not eat for several days, you can consider her to see a vet . I hope your cat to have a healthy body. If you need some pet can click here,thank you!

    Not every food is right for every cat- it depends on the animal and their preferences. The cat KNOWS that if she holds out, mom will put broth in the food which tastes better, so why should she eat it otherwise? A 13-month-old is a CAT, not a kitten, and needs to be switched to adult food. Tell your friend to start gradually weaning in another food and to see how it goes- Slowly. My cats eat Natural Choice and Nutro Max in chicken, salmon and white fish, and they have always done quite well on it. ^_^ --PNS for The Nutro Company, Franklin, TN

    Maybe she likes wet cat food?
