Question

Alright, so as per my previous post, we brought Ozzy home on Mother's Day. And he'll eat just fine...but only if the food is on the floor (He ate out of a food bowl at his foster's house. But when he wouldn't eat out of the bowl, I tried a plate. And he won't do that either. Only if the food is on the floor.) and if I'm sitting next to him while he eats. We've already bonded quite well and he's already very attached to me, as I him, so I'm just wondering if he's too attached.

Me sitting on the floor with him started because we had to switch his food when we got him because he has dry skin. The rescue said that they were about to switch his food the next time his foster ran out of food, but I adopted him before that happened. But anyway, they said they believed he had a food allergy, so we had to switch him to a no grain food called Natural Balance L.I.D., the flavor is Fish and Sweet Potato. But anyway, I hand to give him a couple pieces from hand the first few times to encourage him to eat the new food. So it resulted in me sitting by him.

I don't mind sitting by him, he doesn't take that long, but I just wanted to know if this is something I should be concerned about. Same with the food on the floor. The only reason that really confuses me is because he ate out of a food bowl just fine at his foster's house.

Any input would be appreciated! :)
