Hi I need some advice. Im currently fostering a mom and her 6 5 week old kittens. Ive had them for a week and they are all doing pretty well. Skye (mom) who was very thin and sickly when she came here is starting to fill out nicely. Though you can still see every bone in her body. 5 of the kittens are also doing well theyve started eating canned food and nibbling on Skye's food. But one of the kittens Luna (the runt) isnt eating any of the canned or Skyes food. She is only nursing and Skye isnt producing that much milk anymore. Luna weighs about half as much as her littermates. Shes active and playful but Im worried shes not getting enough to eat. Should I be worrying about her not even trying the canned food. She wont even lick it at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I havnt ever fostered cats/kittens before. Just dogs and Im really nervous!
