Mouse’s Story: Transitioning a Young Cat to a Fresh Diet
Loc Mai was thoughtful in how he transitioned his cat, Mouse, to Nom Nom, and now they’re both seeing the benefits.
"She is more excited when it's time to eat, she has more energy and is more playful! There is no secret in transitioning from kibble to Nom Nom — I believe Mouse just knew what is best for her!"
Loc Mai adopted his nearly 2-year-old cat, Mouse, when she was just three months old. "She is my first cat ever," he says. "My family had a cat before, but that was more than 15 years ago and I don't remember much, since I was a kid."
Slow and Steady
Up until Mouse turned one, Loc fed her kibble, but he realized there might be a better, healthier option. After hearing about Nom Nom, he decided to give it a try by ordering a Variety Pack. But, knowing that cats can be picky, he was thoughtful about the transition. "It took me almost two months to transition her from kibble," he says. "I tried mixing kibble and Nom Nom together and it didn't really work out. I then just gave her both types of food. I had to pretend I was eating the chicken recipe so she would eat it! Finally she started eating a bit of her Nom Nom about five weeks after I got her first order."
Despite the slow transition, Loc was determined. "The main reason I didn't want to give up is because I can see how high-quality Nom Nom food is, and since Mouse is still young, I wanted her to get the best nutrition," he says.
A Winning Combination
Once Mouse was transitioned, it was smooth sailing from there. "She started refusing to eat kibble and would keep meowing 'til she got her favorite Nom Nom Chicken recipe. She then started waking me up at 5-6am to let her out, and knocking on my door if there was no Nom Nom food in the bowl!"
Mouse loves her new food, and Loc loves seeing his beautiful kitty thriving. "I can tell the difference between before and now. She is more excited when it's time to eat, she has more energy and is more playful! There is no secret in transitioning from kibble to Nom Nom — I believe Mouse just knew what is best for her!"
