I might consider a partial obstruction with a furball in the stomach. Soft
food is easier to eat and move thru then moist. Also anything that makes
them a bit weak or nauseous can do it too. Year and years again I had a
ferret of my own that stopped eating dry food altogether and he was
diagnosed with cardiac disease. he would eat any of the liquid or soft
foods I made for him and looked great, put more weight on and looked better
then he had for years. He just wasn't able to or couldn't eat the hard
