Q: Tickles Won't Eat?
my dad says that lately his cat Tickles will not eat her food and will only eat kitty treats so I was wondering if it would work to feed her soft food instead of dry food or maybe give her tuna fish or something?

Not eating or even a change in eating patterns could be the first sign of a medical problem. Tickles needs to be examined by a vet!
If Tickles goes outdoors, it is possible she has another food source (e.g., catching mice). But it is still best to rule out a medical problem!
In the meantime, you could try giving Tickles foods that might stimulate her taste buds and get her to eat something. A small amount of tuna could be "okay", but it lacks the necessary taurine, so should not be given as a substitute for all other foods.
Please schedule an exam for Tickles!!!!
