As some of you know I recently adopted three kittens from my moms barn litters. They had goopy eyes but that is gradually getting better with regular cleanings. However Fluffernutter and Trotter and quite skinny. Fluff is the worst and is just all skin an bones. He eats very well with regular cat food but I was wondering if there was something I could do to help him add some weight just a bit faster. He is a very sedate kitty and snuggles but it breaks my heart to feel how skinny he is. Trotter isnt as bad but he could use some fat on his bone too. Does anyone have safe tips to "pork" up my babies..I heard about the baby food, pedialyte and wet food mixture but I can only do the baby food and wet food. Pedialyte is just too expensive at 9 bucks a bottle....Even the generic walmart brand is pushing the budget. But anyone with advice please pass it on..I dont want to make them into fat cats...as cute as it would be..but just something temporary to help them add some meat...
