Step 2: Stimulate an appetite Get the cat active before feeding times. Exercising or playing with the cat will stimulate its appetite and make it less likely to refuse canned food. Step 3: Combine canned and dry food Add the canned cat food to the cat's dry food in increasing amounts, until you have switched the cat over to 100 percent canned food after about a week. Tip Warm up the canned cat food if it has been refrigerated. Heating the food will increase its aroma and make it more attractive to the cat.
