Hi Jacky

My visitors are being picky too, I try to give mainly spikes / cat biscuits but some other food as well. At the moment they are turning their noses up completely at any wet cat or dog food. Particularly keen on chopped nuts / sunflower hearts at the moment which I know others will query. I can’t force them to eat a particular thing they eat what they want. In the wild they eat all sorts from worms, Beatles, bugs, frogs, birds, fruit and nuts. This evening I’ve not put any nuts / seeds out to ‘encourage’ them to eat the biscuits instead. With regards to water, they also prefer grubby rainwater to the bowls of freshwater I leave out, they drink mainly from the trays of water to deter the cats in front of the feeding station and have a paddle.

Have a lovely holiday.
