Hi, Our kittens have started to eat small amounts of mushed up food now. Well i say 'kittens' but really its only Gem our tabby female thats eating. She only eats once a day but she really tucks in where as Oscar the black male isnt interested at all. He'd much rather have his mum's milk all the time. I have tried tiny bits of chicken to tempt him and also tried smearing the kitten food round his lips to try to get him to lick it off which he does but hes not interested otherwise. I'm not too worried as i know some kittens take to it sooner than others but i am slightly worried about his milk intake. Dee Dee is reluctant to feed them as much as before and sometimes he cries and when she comes over to groom him all he wants is to nuzzle in and Dee Dee walks away meowing at him. He follows her and it makes me a little sad. I'm just worrying that he won't thrive like Gem is? Any advice?
