Decided to switch Sammie over to raw becuae of nasty diarrhea. Lily loves it - devours it in fact, buc I cannot get Sammie to touch it. Even if I warm it up a bit. Any advice?

Hi Sheryl,
I had a similar situation when I tried raw with my dog, and it was because the raw has virtually no smell. Try sprinkling a little bit of tuna juice over it or mixing in a tiny bit of regular wet cat food - something that has a strong smell to it. Cats rely heavily on their sense of smell when they're eating, so that may be just the thing to do it. Once she gets used to it, you should be able to just give her the raw food without having to add anything to it.

Good luck! I hope that works! Let us know.
