Is there somewhere I can buy gravy to put on top of my kittens food?

My kitten will not eat her dry food unless we give her a gravy lovers wet food first, but when I give her the wet food she only licks the gravy and doesn't touch the other part of the food. Then after the gravy is gone she will go and eat all the food in her regular bowl. I don't want to keep wasting money on the wet food when she only eats the gravy. There has to be a gravy I can buy, or make that I can just put on top of her food?? Someone please help me :)

there are nutritional sound gravy packs you can buy at pet supply stores. cats do best w/wet food {it has more protein and moisture and is more closely related to the diets they need}, but adding gravy is a wonderful alternative. have you tried getting her to eat the wet food out of your hand? that's how i train kittens to eat.

Your veterinarian can recommend a pet food company that makes various veterinary diets that come in packets, which are, essentially, a gravy only wet cat food. The advantage of using these foods is that they are completely balanced and good for your cat. Ask your veterinarian about the availability of this diet in your area. As another alternative, mix the wet food she prefers with some water to increase her overall water consumption. Because many cats are finicky about the texture of the food that they are eating, this may not please her. Also, be sure to provide your cat with plenty of fresh water daily to prevent dehydration.

why not try adding some water to her regular food. it may bake its own gravy. mix it up well and the water should get good flavor
