Thanks. My other cat drinks from the tap as well, but not my bengal. I gave up the dry food alltogether. It's there, since my other cat likes to eat it, but my bengal Jazz eats wet food only.I find that feeding high quality wet food only is more expensive,but I can manage the costs as long as he's healthy. :) And he's doing fine now. gaining weight and feeling fine. =)


That's awesome. And honestly, a wet food diet is probably going to be better in the long-term even if he did like dry. Kudos for seeing this through and finding something that works.

If you are going to be feeding him wet food only, then make sure that you do something else to make sure that his teeth stay healthy. He will need an oral care routine. Otherwise, his teeth can start to decay, or abscess, something that is very painful for kitty and will result in VERY bad breath.

Glad to hear that his other problems are clearing up! He is lovely!

Dry food does not clean teeth!
