I would continue to offer, but I'm not sure about disturbing her den if it's completely closed off. Just be vigilant if she doesn't eat so you don't have water issues. Ink did continue to eat. I would put food by her den and she would move the "door" by herself and take what I offered.

yeah ^ agreed it could be that the den is closed off for a reason.
the thing though is if the ahab cant see the food how will she know it is there?
