The key is to do it slowly and with patience and incorporate various tricks for the stubborn cats. The
most important issue is actually making the change, not how fast you accomplish it. I must say
that my cats tested every ounce of patience I had over a 3 + month period of time during their transition
from dry to canned food. They had been on dry food their entire lives and did not recognize canned food
as food. My cats ranged in age from 2 years to 10 years at the time of the transition.
The single biggest mistake I see people make time and again is to say that their cat "won't touch" the new
food and then panic and fill up the bowl with dry food. In many cases, it is simply not that easy to get cats
off of dry food! So, roll up your sleeves and be prepared to patiently out-stubborn your cat.
