not eating anymore

So, louna is eating table scraps I give her... but she's not eating her food!
I feed her suebee's, she eats the dog food, and she used to eat all the puffed wheat first and you could clearly see from her bowl in the morning she had eaten... but recently I feel like only the dog food is diminishing, and the puffed wheat is still there.

As this happened to anyone?

Is it like other animals and she's doing this because i gave her more table scraps lately and that's all she wants so she doesn't eat her food to get me to feed her that? or do I just have to switch foods? I was thinking last night of giving her oxbow's regal rat.
Yesterday i only gave her a tiny piece of cheese (like as big as a pea) and one cereal flake, and she didn't eat more of her food than the previous day where i gave her more food and veggies.
And it's not her teeth, if I give her puffed wheat one by one from my hand she eats it, and she eats the dog food which is pretty hard.

what do you gys think?

Maybe try not giving her any table scraps for a full day and see if she eats her rat mix? I feed mine a mix of Oxbow and Reggie Rat, and they hardly touch the Oxbow...

I think she's just becoming spoiled!

I think before you start thinking anything drastic, go with Breyer's advice: Just don't feed her table scraps for a bit - she should start eating her food again.
