When I got Mickey he wouldnt eat the dry food I got for him, and I tried several. So I started putting a little wet food in it, now all he wants is wet food and I have been cutting down on it and he is losing weight. What to do? Cold turkey? Help.

answered you on FB....but I say let him have the wet food. I researched it for Orion for the same reason and found no reason to keep forcing the dry food on her. I just give her the treats that say they provide tartar control.

That is what I would do too. Feed her what she enjoys and then keep her teeth clean with hard treats and teeth cleanings.

Sharky, now 10, born a barn cat, lived outdoors first 8 years, never saw a litter pan.

Now he lives indoors, uses a litter pan, sleeps beside my wife's pillow, eat's dry food at his leisure, gets 1/4 of the small size can of wet for dinner each night at 6 pm. Never has scratched any piece of furniture, but does "do" his claws on the rugs (only).

Weighs 9.5 lbs, doesn't put on weight. Vet is very concerned if a cat begins to loose weight, so watch out for that.

We had a cat named Sharkey when I was a kid. Sharkey was a gray tabby and her brother, a yellow tabby, was named Banana. Named for, of course, the musician Sharkey Bonano.

How old is Mickey (is Mickey "my katty who is 16)? If he's old he could be wanting 'wet' food if his teeth are going bad. We had that problem with our dog when she was around 13 years old. Couldn't figure out why she stopped eating the dry stuff (which she's had since she was a puppy). Figured the problem might be with her teeth, switched to dry dog food, and she ate like a champ.

Do you think that could possibly be the problem?
