My cat just devoured his new food and then the next day he will not touch it, why?

Think of eating way too much cookie dough; how soon are you likely to eat more? They blame the food for making them feel sick and refuse to eat the next day. This does not mean there was something wrong with the new food, only that it was introduced incorrectly. Just put the new food down and if they dive in, stay and watch them. Once they have eaten 15 pieces of food, pick the cat up and take him/her to another room and distract them with play. Once play time is over, their stomach has caught up with their brain, they realize they are full. They forget about the new food and the next time they are hungry the food is not such a novelty and they should seldom overeat.
