Mixing wet and dry dog food or wet and dry cat food is fine as long as both options are of high quality and meet your pet’s nutritional and other health needs.

Is it OK to leave dry cat food out all day?
You can safely leave dry cat food out for several days and it won’t spoil, but it’s best to throw out leftovers and wash the dish on a daily basis, to keep Fluffy’s food at its freshest. Keep in mind that dry food will grow stale within a day and may not be as appealing to your cat once this happens.

Why do cats suddenly not like their food?
If your cat isn’t feeling well, it may stop eating because there’s something stuck in its stomach or intestines. Or, your cat might not like the food you’re offering. Your cat’s lack of eating can also be a symptom of a disease or problem that’s causing pain or discomfort.
Why is my cat suddenly not eating his dry food?
If your cat normally enjoys dry food but has suddenly become a fussy eater, you may need to replace your supply. As dry food absorbs moisture (especially in warm weather), your stocks may have turned stale. If your cat has started to turn their nose up at their usual wet food, it could be because it’s too cold.
