I had posted this under the health section, but decided to post under Diet/Nutrition in hopes of some help. I once again have tried to introduce Paco to a new dry cat food. In the past this has failed as he is a very picky eater. I have not found anything he will eat besides Solid Gold Cat food and certain types of moist food. After a couple days with the new food, I noticed that the amount of the SG he was eating, was down to about a quarter of what he normally eats. So I took the new food out, but he will not go back to eating the same amount he did before the new food. I have even gone out to try other foods to get him to eat. No luck. He is still drinking the same, and eating the half of tablespoon of moist that I put in, but I do not want him to have moist all the time, I want him to stay on the SG. He is still using his wheel, but is it not as messy as it used to be, so every other night I have been giving him a foot bath to ensure that he is pooping still. His weight as been between 469-457, and we have been weighing him morning and night. His cage is between 78.3-78.7 F for temp. Light is on from 7 am until we take him out around 6:30 and he is back in his cage between 8:30-9 pm. The temp and the light routine have been the same since we first got him almost a year ago...I am just at a loss as what I should do...I also thought it was due to the SG as we freeze it, so I went out and got a new bag...but found that the kibble is a different color and he wont even touch that.

Thank You for all your help.
