We have a weird cat, then. She eats the same mix of food day in and day out. Even turns down goodies like canned cat food except a bite or two. .She came from a drug house with a jillion other cats and dogs. She used to wolf her food down until she figured out we weren’t going to take it from her. She will bug us if her dish is empty, though, even if she doesn’t touch the food. I’d guess it’s a comfort to her to have some available.
