And so it should. That is not a good suggestion. If she was turned in or abandoned at that young age, there's probably a good chance she was fed some crappy cat food. You're probably trying to feed her a good, nutritious food and she just doesn't recognize it.

Go to the grocery store and buy a couple kinds of dry cat food and see if she'll eat it. You might be surprised. Once she's eating dry food, even bad dry food, you can slowly switch her over to something better for her.
