We got him form our landlord who found him in an (supposed to be empty) apartment, we figure he was there for three days unattenuated. Might be why he's not playing yet but we're not to sure. He sticks to me like glue most days. But tonight after I posted I hauled out the balls with bells in them and boom, there he went.
I'm hoping I can find the food to change it over, I'll check the pet stores tomorrow.
Thank you everyone!
Awww....poor little guy. Definitely a good idea to get him to the vet to make sure that he's fine. Bad things can happen when a kitty goes without food, although if he is eating OK, he is probably fine in that regard. However, if someone just left him there, there is a good chance that he hasn't received vet care at all since he was born. He'll likely need to be dewormed (easy) and neutered.
As for foods, you can get pretty much any of the brands that people will mention here in Canada, but they will be more difficult to find. I am guessing more difficult in NB (depending on where you are) than here in Ontario. If you're on a budget, and you have a Petsmart, Authority would be a good place to start. If you have a Costco, you could try their Kirkland brand (although, I'm not sure that it's suitable for kittens). Chances are your local pet store will have some of the more premium kinds (Wellness, etc). Both my local pet stores in town carry Nutro foods, so that might be a good option to find in your area.
Good luck! And good for you for taking this little guy in and giving him a home!
