My baby Midnight is approximatly 5-6 months old.A blessing by god. Midnight and her two brothers were found living in a barge with no mother in the dead of winter. When they were taken in they were in bad shape but started on Cap Sip within a few days. Eventually the cats were split up. I recived Midnight (female) who was smallest.My mom recieved Sugar Raye (Middle size) and my step dads friend Dave recieved River (who is huge). Both Sugar and River are DLH cats and Midnight is a Dsh. When I recieved Midnight she was able to drink on her own but couldnt yet eat dry nor moist food. Since she has gotten older it has been a uphill battle with her to eat.At 3 months she weighed 2.5lbs. The vet at that time gave her this high in fat food for kittens which was a moist food but yet Midnight still wouldnt eat it. I have tried Various dry foods from most expensive to least to best quality to worst and she turns her nose at it. If left out she will eat not even 1/3 of a cup a day.She will not eat moist food at all. The only thing that I had found that she will eat is Chunk Tuna in Water but yet I know that isnt good for her all the time so I am at the point where I am not sure what to do. She seems very picky.She isnt given and table food to eat either.It is about time for her to be fixed and declawed and we are running into a problem because she is underweight. Otherwise she is very healthy. She likes to run and play.She is very loving. I wonder what effect of her being so much smaller then her brothers could play a role in her eating habits. I am also wondering what if and comments you may have on things I could try with her to get to eat more food or even just more often. Thanks!Here are a few Pictures of her.
