Wow, that was easy!
Took away the kibble and only offered her soft ... Dick VP's Duck & Green Pea, and two of the Merrick's varieties.
She jumped on the counter to look for the kibble the first day, so I moved every trace of it out!
Cookie's really gobbling up the Merrick's ones now.
These aren't specifically marketed as "kitten" food, but they're okay for her growth needs, right?
PS ... she's still jumping up on the counter, but I think it's become a "hey, look what I can do!" kind of thing now!
